It's almost Halloween — a time when ghouls, ghosts and goblins are said to roam the landscape and the barrier between the living and the dead becomes permeable.

This is my favorite holiday! Of course I have to dress up. Not with just old clothes in mean all out Zombie-like even with white or red contacts. The best year I had was when I was dressed up as the wolfman chained to a tree in our front yard (not too many trick or treating that year :) ).

Any members have this much fun on this holiday, if so lets hear it.


Happy Halloween...

I'm starting to have a fantasy that this is how you always behave sky wizard......and you are using the current pagan festival as an excuse to act thus. Regardless of what you post after this, the image is now to strong to change for me!

*jumps out hedge at neighbour*

I will post my costume when and if appropriate lol!

Samhain, (pronounced SOW-in, SAH-vin, or SAM-hayne) means "End of Summer", and is the third and final Harvest. The dark winter half of the year commences on this Sabbat.

It is generally celebrated on October 31st, but some traditions prefer November 1st. It is one of the two "spirit-nights" each year, the other being Beltane. It is a magical interval when the mundane laws of time and space are temporarily suspended, and the Thin Veil between the worlds is lifted. Communicating with ancestors and departed loved ones is easy at this time, for they journey through this world on their way to the Summerlands. It is a time to study the Dark Mysteries and honor the Dark Mother and the Dark Father, symbolized by the Crone and her aged Consort.

Originally the "Feast of the Dead" was celebrated in Celtic countries by leaving food offerings on altars and doorsteps for the "wandering dead". Today a lot of practitioners still carry out that tradition. Single candles were lit and left in a window to help guide the spirits of ancestors and loved ones home. Extra chairs were set to the table and around the hearth for the unseen guest. Apples were buried along roadsides and paths for spirits who were lost or had no descendants to provide for them. Turnips were hollowed out and carved to look like protective spirits, for this was a night of magic and chaos. The Wee Folke became very active, pulling pranks on unsuspecting humans. Traveling after dark was was not advised. People dressed in white (like ghosts), wore disguises made of straw, or dressed as the opposite gender in order to fool the Nature spirits.

This was the time that the cattle and other livestock were slaughtered for eating in the ensuing winter months. Any crops still in the field on Samhain were considered taboo, and left as offerings to the Nature spirits. Bonfires were built, (originally called bone-fires, for after feasting, the bones were thrown in the fire as offerings for healthy and plentiful livestock in the New Year) and stones were marked with peoples names. Then they were thrown into the fire, to be retrieved in the morning. The condition of the retrieved stone foretold of that person's fortune in the coming year. Hearth fires were also lit from the village bonfire to ensure unity, and the ashes were spread over the harvested fields to protect and bless the land.

Various other names for this Greater Sabbat are Third Harvest, Samana, Day of the Dead, Old Hallowmas (Scottish/Celtic), Vigil of Saman, Shadowfest (Strega), and Samhuinn. Also known as All Hallow's Eve, (that day actually falls on November 7th), and Martinmas (that is celebrated November 11th), Samhain is now generally considered the Witch's New Year.

Sorry to be such a plonker, but isn't Halloween a yanky thing? :crazy:

We don't do Halloween here in oz, although there have been fairly aggressive marketing campaigns to get it going in the past few years.

Never taken off here thank God. The thought of kiddies trick or treating on my front doorstep makes me want to froth at the mouth. Mwah, ha, ha, ha, that'll get 'em running back to their mummies...:hilarious:

I don't even know what trick or treat is, let alone what it means.:onthequite:

The trick is what happens every time you try to post Sooz and your pc throws itself out of the nearest portal available. The treat is that one time every year when you click "post reply" and you actually post a reply without event. :pc:

Seriously though, Samhain is a pagan festival, tragically interwoven into the commercialism of a Christo-capitalist society. A bit like Yule (xmas)....oh and Ostara (Easter).....oh wait......anyone seeing a pattern here?

That was so very good I did a reverse Sooz 5 finger so it could be enjoyed and shared in a topic exploring other recognition of "Halloween."

Please forgive me ... or at least don't punish me too much http://www.pic4ever.com/images/Just_Cuz_15.gif
