Samhain, a Celtic holiday celebrated centuries before Christianity eradicated the Pagan religions, is the orgin of what is now called Halloween. It is the last harvest festival of the year and a night when it's said the veil between the worlds is thin. It is a night to honor our ancestors and the soul of the departed, and historically was celebrated with bonfires and jack-o-lanterns to light the darkness for any wandering spirits. Leave an apple outside and light a candle in the window to guide spirits on their journey. raise a glass to those who have moved on between veils and drink to their life, and meeting them again in the next cycle of life.

Here is a fun Samhain spell I found, along with some gorgeous photos from Cherry Blossom Girl befitting the holiday.

Be unafraid of Shadows dark
And to their whispers
Do Not Hark

Unfriendly words
You do Not hear
No worry, trouble
Loss or Fear

No Shadow falls
Upon your Heart
We Stand Together
Though Apart.

We Stand Together
Ever Winning
All our spells
Together Spinning
For Every End
A New Beginning

Wealthy, Healthy,
Happy, Free
If this your Will
So Mote It Be!
