    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...

    Happy Halloween Everyone And A Happy Wiccan New Year

    It's Halloween I hear the calling Amid the Autumn leaves now falling. Goose flesh from the night air chills Sends shivers down my spine a thrill. Shining stars all shapes and sizes Toward the east where Luna rises. Over the skeletal tree tops high Slowly crawling across the sky...

    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...

    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"...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I have just discovered that Samhain means summer's end.  It is also the Witches New Year and Day of the Dead. I believe that this has always been a very important festival to folks...just because it has always been celebrated for centuries and centuries, time out of mind...

    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...
