What's On My Altar

I used found autumn decorations (leaves, stones, fallen twigs, nuts), runes, stone skulls, incense, a carved pumpkin, spirit candles, apples, Pan de Muerto, etc. These are all important because they represent the turning of the wheel of the year.

How I Celebrated Samhain

We hosted a ritual for a small group of friends and family. After, we ate stuffed pumpkin and drank a gorgeous honeyed mead. We had a wonderful evening filled with lovely harvest tastes and good company while we remembered those important to us who had passed on.

Tips and Tricks

  • I have no tips or tricks to share. To each their own. Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again. Again...not sure why there needs to be a thirty word minimum here. Sillyness!
