All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
hey everyone!! I'm here in the northwoods, a solitary wiccan. Honestly, I don't do alot of formal rituals, it's more of a way I choose to believe and live my life. However, I DO want to do something to formally celebrate Samhain- nothing elaborate- just my way of both giving thanks, and communing with my loved ones that have passed and letting them know they are loved and missed.
Looking for ideas on small ceremony's..what do YOU do for the big day!
thanks for any ideas/comments ahead of time!
Thanks Tracey! This sounds great- whatever I do, and it will be outside around a fire- it will be by myself. My husband might join me just to be there, but while he is open minded, he's more of a watcher.lol But I'm sure I'll feel the spirits of those who have passed over, so I won't be alone!
and the pumpkin bread sounds YUMMY!
My Smahain celebration is normally 6 days.
In those six days I bake, decorate, make offerings, practice my divination work, etc.
On Halloween night I cook an early dinner and set aside a plate for those that have passed...this year it will be for my Teacher who has passed. I then prepare for the trick-or-treaters. Once that's over and done with I head up to the Trans allegheny lunatic asylum, my usual haunting grounds, and enjoy the bonfire/music/tours/haunted house. Then around midnight I make an offering of incense to the spirits still trapped at the asylum, and head home to watch some horror movies.
Boring, but it's how I like it.
Raven- that doesn't sound boring to me, actually quite fullfilling!
Have fun, and many blessings to you this new year!
