Samhain

Samhain

Samhain (October 31st) is the Celtic holiday celebrating the end of the summer harvest and the beginning of winter.  As the harvest of meat, it's common to use tools including feathers, bones, talons and horns. Popular traditions include the Feast of the Dead and communicating with ancestors and deceased loved ones as the veil separating this world and the next is thinnest on this day.  

The beginning of the new year, Samhain is a time for resolutions. Write a resolution or intent on a bay leaf or small bit of paper and burn it in a ritual candle. Also, with the thinning of the veil, it is an excellent time for divination.

This carefully curated assortment of items all have significance to Samhain and are commonly used in rituals and various traditions.
