Halloween is the modern-day name by which the sacred day of Samhain is known. In our day and age, children dress up as scary beings of “imagination” and trot up and down the neighbourhood in search of treats and tricks. While our more modern culture and method of honouring this sacred day is not as reverent in times past, the roots of our current holiday are marked in the traditions of old.
Samhain or All Hallows Eve was one of the two days in the Wheel of the Year where the veil which barred our eyes from the spirit world was said to be at its thinnest. As Samhain marks the last harvest, we prepare to descend into the darkness of winter and we pay homage to our ancestors who have made that final journey; wishing them well on their way. At this time, we pray that the bounty of our labours through the summer will help sustain us through the dark times of winter and we connect with and revere our ancestors and the nature spirits who journey with us as well.
In honour of the old traditions, the MMS Wicca Coven Community invites you to join us as we consolidate the fruits of our labours, honour those who have gone before us and partake of the magick of this season and sacred day!
