Samhain and weep

Samhain means “summer’s end” to the Celt. They only celebrated two season: Summer and Winter. So Samhain is the celebrating the transitions between these two seasons. Samhain is also the third and final harvest. The nights from this point will get darker. It is one of two “spirit” nights, the other being Beltane. Samhain is the Feast of the Dead where food is left outside for wandering spirits. This is one of the four Greater Sabbats, for many this is most important, and is called THE Great Sabbats. Pagans see this as a very magical night. It is a night of Jack O’Lanterns, tricks or treats, and dressing up in costume, but also it is a night of divination.
