This is one of my favorite Pagan holidays!! Dressing up and acting like a fantasy creature!!
These are only a few of the things I enjoy doing!!
-Make a jac-o-lantern! This has been a custom for over thousands of years. They were designed to frighten away evvil spirits who were following decesed loved ones and blocking the way back to the land of the living.
-Drink warmed apple cider spiced with cinnamon to honor the dead.
-Since this is also the Pagan New Year, this is a day to make New Year Resolutions. Write them down on paper and burn them. The smoke will take them up to the Gods.
-Bury apples in your yard for the spirits passing by on their way to be reborn.
-Do divinations for the year to come.
-Make a spirit candle to burn. Anoint a white candle with patchouli oil. Say: With this candle and by its light, I welcome you spirits this Samhain night." Place the candle inside your jack-o-lantern. If you don't have one, leave it on a table near your entry way or in the center of your dining room table.
