    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
