Today, the Countdown to Hallowe'en blogathon continues with a spooky post on the environment, a topic I normally cover here. All Hallows' Eve overemphasizes the supernatural: it is a Christian night of purgatorial observance, coming before All Saints' Day (November 1) and All Souls' Day (November 2). But Hallowe'en is also a celebration of the power of the purely natural world, because it incorporates pagan elements, pre-Christian traditions around the harvest, and northern autumnal festivals. These latter aspects draw from the Roman feast of Pomona; the Celtic festival of Samhain; the Welsh Nos Galan Gaeaf; and the German Martinisingen. Below the jump, some unsettling calls from birds and animals (some are speculative).
