Halloween Macabre – Tolland Man

Tolland Man

For modern people, Halloween is a favorite holiday when merchants rake in their second-highest revenues for the year. For early people, All-Hallows’-Eve was celebrated the night before All-Hallows’-Day when the Saints were commemorated at Mass. In some cultures, the celebrants look towards ending the harvest and preparing for winter. For others, it represents a time when the physical and supernatural worlds are closest, when the magic rules and the dead walk, even revisiting their homes. The next few days, Rita Bay’s Blog will feature pictures of the macabre. Rita

Check out the bog body of Tolland Man from the 4th century BC. Murdered or sacrificed, but still at peace.  Rita
