This time of year has always been a favorite time of mine for so many reasons. From the carving of Jack-O-Lanterns to eating carmel apples to the wonderful vibrant colors that Mother Nature gives it is a wonderful time indeed.
It is also a time when we prepare for the final harvest and the coming of the new year. The year is winding down and we reflect on what has past and what is to come. As All Hallows Eve nears, we all have our own form of celebration. Mine is usually a quiet night at home with a meal representive of the fruits of the harvest at this time of year. I usually take any last herbs and/or flowers that I may want before the end of the day and always pay homage to those who have passed, remembering them and the gifts they gave and still give to us.
This is a time when the veil is quite thin between worlds and is a perfect time to communicate with those who have gone before. I am always sure to leave an offering beneath my Elm for the fae as well as a couple colorful trinkets.
I wish you and yours a blessed Samhain and hope that your time together will be joyful and warm.
I thought I would point you to a few posts of mine with Autumn and Samhain in mind. A little of everything. Enjoy... Don't forget to check out my giveaway to celebrate this time of year.Pumpkin Pie and Parlor Games
