A Celtic goddess of the Winter season who was worshipped in pre- Christian Scotland, and depicted in works of art as a cronelike woman with a blue face. According to mythology, each year on Samhain (October 31) she is reborn as the bringer of the snows. She reigns until the eve of Beltane (April 30) when she turns into stone and the goddess Brigit deposes her.
