So you Celts out there how do you acknowledge Samhain ,the passing into the dark side of the year?Personally, I do the traditional gourd carving,a face to ward off unwanted spirits as the viel between us and them thins. Usually will raise a dram of the most earthy single malt I have in stock, and as the evening darkens play some long slow aires on the pipes outside.

I read an article that decorating for Halloween has become one of the biggest of all the seasons. Since I live in Florida, I think many decorate just to "create seasons". I love this year's motion activated witch's broom and going through the stores and activating all the merchandise. Do you decorate for just the one day or do you try for the month? Do you find that you are doing more than before? I have grandchildren so I try to decorate for the month (yeah, that's the excuse I'm using). I was looking to update the glow in the dark eyes shower curtain and found some that where pretty gruesome, especially the one that has the shadow of a man with a knife as in Psycho! No I didn't go that route. What's on your list?

Happy Halloween to you christineb1979 and welcome to the forum.

I can't believe the end of October is almost here. Hot Caramel Cider for me this year. I don't know what's going to happen this year, didn't have one knock last year as our downtown merchants block off the streets and give out candy. Well this year they decided to to this on the 29th, so guess the kids will get two Halloweens. lol
I love roasting pumpkin seeds.

Have a fun and safe Halloween.

Call me a traditionalist, for me All hallows eve is about the end of summer and harvest. When the fertile earth goes to sleep and no crops grow. The passage into winter to await spring again, the turning of the year.Its also when the otherworld is closest to our world, when the dead rise and sek out those people they think should join them in the otherworld.Masks are worn to disguise one self from the dead. To the ancient Celt passing to the otherworld was considered an honour, they did not fear it in the way that the western ,modern world does.

I know it's a bit late to talk of it but here is what I do since the last 5 years.I do organise a huge dinner for all my friend , or at least as much as the space of our little appartment can handle it.Most of the time I do it one or two weekend before Halloween depending of the people who are coming.Of course they have to be in costume and sometimes there is a theme to follow.I offer a big dinner with a lot of dessert and all wine , cider and beer is offer too.

For the part the wheel of the year is turning , sometimes we already have snow for Halloween.The day are shorter and the temperature is colder.For me , the winter knock at the door at this time and sometimes earlier when I saw the first snowflakes.

All our friend know at this time of the year this dinner is a tradition , you can miss it or they have to wait to the next year.I decorate my appt. all the month of october .I envy those of you who have sun and heat at this time of the year.
