Burning of the HarvestMan!
Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season. It is the end of the Celtic year when the Holly King defeats the Oak King "The Bringer of Light" and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. We burn the Harvestman in honor of the fallen Oak King as a symbolic funeral. " Out of the Ashes he will be reborn."

Take a stroll through our hallowed graveyard and listen to the bewildering tales of the dead from our Undertaker.
Hearts of Khyber is a collective of musicians and dancers who represent the nomads that traveled the ancient Silk Road. While crossing the continents, they absorbed the traditions, music, and dance from the multiple cultures they encountered.
The first groups of these travelers migrated into Great Britain by the end of the 15th century. They were initially welcomed by the local gentry and royalty to camp on the outskirts of towns or just outside city walls, and were often paid for playing music or telling fortunes.
Hearts of Khyber derives its name from the Khyber Pass, an integral, yet often treacherous, part of the ancient Silk Road. Having a heart of Khyber means you have the strength and fortitude to be the hardiest of travelers!
Come and visit the Hearts of Khyber encampment and watch these mysterious travelers perform live, historical music and dance!"
The tradition of the Danse Macabre dates back to the Middle Ages, perhaps earlier, and many different theories exist as to what was its original purpose. It is a cross-cultural phenomenon, occurring in English, French and Spanish folklore and art, among others.
Some thought the images of skeletons dancing in the streets would intimidate Death so that no one would be taken away. Others thought it was to trick Death into thinking all the villagers in this particular area were already dead... and enjoying it! So there was nothing for the spectre of Death to do and He would fly on. Still others thought it a way to point out no matter if you are Queen or serving wench, Bishop or bastard, minstrel or milliner... eventually we all will danse the Danse Macabre.
