This weekend is Calan Gaeaf in Wales.
Translated into English, this means the start of winter and is an
ancient celebration to mark the Celtic New Year. These days
the more modern celebration of Halloween is more widely celebrated
although this has its roots in the Calan Gaeaf celebrations.
There are plenty of events happening throughout Southern Wales to
celebrate Halloween. St Fagans National History Museum near
Cardiff are running a series of ghost tours through their site calling at some
of their haunted buildings as you go.
Meanwhile Tredegar House on the outskirts of Newport is
getting all creepy. Visitors are invited dared
to explore the cobwebbed halls and living graveyard.
If you're feeling really brave then you should head for the most
haunted house in Wales - Llancaiach Fawr near Caerphilly.
Strange goings-on have been reported throughout the house and
grounds. They're marking Halloween with a Psychic Evening and Ghost Tours
