    A Poem Entitled: "Samhain"

    “Yea, she hath passed hereby, and blessed the sheaves, And the great garths, and stacks, and quiet farms, And all the tawny, and the crimson leaves. Yea, she hath passed with poppies in her arms, Under the star of dusk, through stealing mist, And blessed the earth, and gone...

    My Very First Samhain

    I've just recently started practicing the craft and this will be my first Samhain. I've been reading a lot about the different festivities associated with it but honestly it's a bit daunting with the amount of info on the net! I don't know anyone in real life or on the net for...

    Origins Of Samhain...

    While Wikipedia is far from being an undisputed resource or authority, I found the entry on Samhain to be one of the most factual. http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Samhain Samhain as this article states is a word derived from the Gaelic word for "feast"...

    On and Off Again Samhain

    I will definately celebrate Samhain some how but it will probably be something small.  It's usually difficult doing something every year because my Step Son's birthday is November 1st and this year it lands on a Saturday... Does anyone know what day Samhain lands on this...

    My Son's First Samhain

    We had a good Samhain! It didn't go like I though it would, but that's ok. I made a little Mummy Onsie for my baby boy, and I was quite proud aof it's cuteness. We are poor right now and have no cash to spend on costumes, so I do what I was taught and work with what I have. Our...

    My Favorite Day Of The Year!

    Ofcourse it is! I'm a witch. What did you expect? Lol. Samhain is my favorite sabbat. It has been since I was little, even when it was just Halloween, before I knew my practices had a name. Even as a child I could feel the air become thick with energy and magick. I didn't go...

    Favorite Holiday!

    I love this holiday so much! Oct. 30th, the best night of the year! I use to dress up in costume. Not so much now, since it's wasted effort... rarely anyone gets to see me in full black makeup and bell-sleeved outfits, just the trick-or-treaters... and they look too nervous, with...

    Samhain Is Coming!!!

      I know it might seem silly to start on this topic already, its only the 3rd but I am already thinking about what I am going to do for Samhian this year. My family makes it very hard to openly do a ritual for the Sabbats. In fact, in four years I have been able to do...

    Summer's End.

    Harvest And The Veil

    For me it's a two fold time. Not just a single day and night. It's a time for taking stock of what I have reaped during the year. To put things aside for the coming winter. To off load some of the negative aspects that have accumulated. And also to remember my ancestor's and...

    The Dark Time.

    In my part of Wicca, the time between Samhain and Midwinter's Night (Yule) is a dead time. It is a time to avoid any new beginning such as a handfasting, coming of age, initiations, etc. It is a time for contact with departed spirits that have crossed to the other side. It is...
