Samhain goes til December according to the event. Halloween is only one day.

Amirite?

Well, technically Samhain lasts from sunset on 31st October to sunset on 1st November, but that seems like an awfully short time for an event.

So, seeing as Samhain is a festival which brings in the 'darker half' of the year we thought it best to have it run throughout the dark days until December (not that the days get any lighter here in Scotland after December).

I think it's fun to learn about the origins of our holidays, and the CH celebrations are a lot more interesting than they would be if they modernized it...

Can you imagine if the event were traveling from NPC to NPC collecting candy for 2 hours, then eating all of the candy at once and having lowered stats the next day?

(looking forward to seeing what is in store for us!)

The patch with the Samhain Event will be at some point next week, so it could be anywhere between Monday and Sunday.

Useless I know, but unfortunately I don't have an exact date at the moment. Once I have something concrete I'll be sure to let people know.
