The thought of Halloween often provokes images of pumpkin patches, children in costumes and witches on broomsticks. For the members of the Pagan Student Organization (PSO), however, Halloween, or Samhain, means so much more. For these students, witches aren’t green with crooked noses and cauldrons—this season holds a spiritual value.
This year, PSO is working with Better Together for a Samhain event the week of Halloween, time and location to be determined. Halloween, among other Western holidays like Christmas, stems from Pagan and Wiccan origins.
