Very interesting and informative. I love anything involving druids, the Celts were a fascinating culture.

I'm definetly thinking that Druidry is a Celtic Religion. I'm not a Druid, but my family is Irish, so that's just me inserting pride. That, and I'm almost sure that Halloween was always connected with the Island of Ireland, as the earliest Druids began it there as opposed to the other isles of Britain, and I would think that it would have developed as tradition associated with the religion just as the religion was founded, like Christmas to Christianity. I'm pretty sure the original story tied in with that of the Irish Dullaghan, the caller of the dead (and the faery/God that the Headless Horseman was created by) that was appeased by the celebration of Halloween even at its earliest point. That information might be partisan, too, though, since I read it in my Irish history books, heirlooms in my family.
This was a very informative essay, though I would like to learn more about the actual religion, itself, over the holidays. I see that you covered the purposes of them, but it seems like defining Judaism by Channauka to me! Maybe that was the intent, but religions are very defining things that determine the entire entity of a person, so I'd love to learn more about it!

I liked that. It was written well and pretty informative. I'm Pagan (Wiccan more specifically), so that was nice to read. Thanks for posting it ^_^;
