Samhain has arrived, and the midnight fae have it all ready to go from Smashwords in numerous file formats. Click the image above, and enjoy!
Coming up next, Esbats…
In the meantime, the veil is thin so connect with your ancestors and family. Try a traditional dumb supper, light candles in remembrance, read a spread and divine your future. Most important of all, love and listen!
Try this one for your dumb supper, it’s delicious comfort food everyone can love.
1 c raw, grated potato
1 c cooked leftover (or fresh) mashed potatos
1 onion, minced fine (optional)
1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
1 c buttermilk
2 tbsp butter
Combine grated potato, onion and buttermilk. In another bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder, then add potato mixture, egg and mashed potato. Batter should be somewhat the consistency of pancake mix. Add additional flour or buttermilk if need be.
Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of batter into skillet, forming 4″ circles. Brown on both sides.
Many blessings of the season, my hope for you all is a bright new year with enough.

So, we’ve released three Sabbat handbooks officially, and Litha unofficially (although it’s official version is fast approaching!), and now we’d like to hear from the readers on what they’d like to see in future.
More activities? Less activities and more info? More crafts, less recipes or vice-versa?
Comment below; comments are held to moderate for spam and the occasional non-pagan unfriendly, so if you’d rather it not be public just mention that and I can keep it private.

Happy Samhain everyone!
Tonight is the night to honor the god’s passage to the underworld where he is welcomed by his consort and those who have gone before.
It is our night to honor our ancestors newly passed and older, to remind them of the love and respect shared with them from the land of the living.
I hope everyone has a safe and productive ritual night and a blessed new year. Blessed be!
Samhain Prayer – Scott Cunningham
On this night of Samhain I mark your passing, O Sun King,
through the sunset into the Land of the Young.
I mark also the passing of all who have gone before,
and all who will go after.
O Gracious Goddess, Eternal Mother,
You who gives birth to the fallen,
teach me to know that in the time of
the greatest darkness there is the greatest light.
