ierne (Morrighan Corvidae) of Glas Celli presents a short handbook to introduce traditional pagan information, ritual, meal plan and activities for new pagan families celebrating Samhain.
Samhain, also known as Halloween, All Hallow’s Eve, Festival of the Dead, La Samhna, Feast of All Souls, Samana and Fire Festival, is the final of the three harvest Sabbats. It is at this time of year that the livestock is sorted, and those to be butchered are chosen and separated from the rest of the brood.
Samhain is the time of year during which we honor our dead; the ancestors, the friends, all those that have gone through the veil to the Undying lands. We welcome them back into our homes at this time when the veil between worlds is thinnest.
