(Aos Sí) is the Irish term for a supernatural race in Irish mythology and Scottish mythology comparable to the fairies or elves. They are said to live underground in fairy mounds, across the western sea, or in an invisible world that coexists with the world of humans. At Samhain, a liminal time (Oct 31-Nov 1), when the boundary between this world and the Otherworld was more easily crossed the Aos Sí would come into our world. Most scholars see the Aos Sí as remnants of the pagan gods and nature spirits. It was believed that the Aos Sí needed to be propitiated to ensure that the people and their livestock survived the winter. Offerings of food and drink were left outside for them.
