Breyer 2019 Halloween Horse Samhain
Nothing says Halloween quite like the sights and sounds of an autumn farm after dark! Amidst the black fencing on Samhain’s sides are cornstalks, pumpkins, eerie ghosts, and the rising moon. When the lights go out, Samhain won’t leave you in the dark: the green areas of her coat glow! Her spooky appearance is accented with metallic gold and copper, shimmery orange, and the deep black of night.
Samhain’s name is a nod to Halloween’s Gaelic roots. Celebrated from October 31 to November 1st, Samhain marked the end of the fall harvest season and the beginning of winter – the darkest time of the year. Some believed that the line between this world and otherworld was thinnest during this time, which allowed spirits to cross and mingle with the living.
