Samhain is a time to honor and remember those who have died. A time to remember the good times and the bad for our furry and non-furry family who are on the other side. Currently, popular culture celebrates this on the 31st of October, but originally, it was the halfway point between the Equinox (9/23) and the Solstice (12/22). These celebrated things of an agricultural nature and so their calendar was the position of the sun. There are 90 days between those two events. Forty-five days from the Equinox would be 11/7.

This year, our Samhain celebration will consist of:

Pot Luck Feast (please tell everyone what you will bring at the Food List, or through Facebook). Also, please remember to sign up, so everyone knows how many to plan for at Registration.

Readings -- we will have one or two people available to do tarot readings.

Spirit Circle -- this involves all of us being able to receive and pass along impressions and messages. If you are not comfortable saying what you got, we will have cards available to allow you to write it down and, if intended for a particular person, they will receive the card.

Our goal is to celebrate the Sabbat and enable everyone to spend some time with those on the other side.

Suggested donation: $6.00
