Sunset on Samhain is the beginning of the new year in Celtic times. A time for us to set new intentions, think new ideas and formulate plans…to incubate those ideas over the cold winter months and birth them into the warm sprain time breezes…
Our Hallowe’en moments
: : Carving pumpkins
: : Pumpkin maths
: : Reading our familiar Hallowe’en stories
When my children were younger, we kept away from the ‘scary’ aspect of Hallowe’en and focused on the Autumn aspect – hence the first three lovely, cosy books. Despite being older now, they still love to read these books (and even better, have them read aloud!) They also enjoy a good scary story and I find the last book to be perfect for their appetite.
: : Made ‘Hallowe’en Soup’ (onions, pumpkin, orange peppers, sweet potato, carrots) all served up after dark in a big pumpkin 🙂
: : Created Hallowe’en art
: : Decorated our home
: : Had oodles of fun at our local Book Cycle party
: : Trick or Treating
: : Supper with good friends
Today (November 1st) is All Souls Day. I will be remembering loved ones passed in my prayers today and we are going to visit the cemetery where a loved friend rests. We shall be tidying the graveside and Rose will be leaving a special gift.
