Linda Mattson Souling time again (39) RE: Souling time again 01 Nov 01


Hi Noreen! These sound like wonderful events. Can you or anyone explain a little of the history of souling? My friend recently sang a soulcake song in a pre-Halloween celebration and was castigated by a member of his band, for singing a "Christmas" song. She didn't believe that it was a Halloween season tradition. I have a calendar of English customs which relates Souling to All Souls Day or Samhain. Does it belong to both seasons?

Peace to everyone, -Linda Mattson (fondly remembering Llanstock 2000)
