Halloween celebrates the Pagan new year, also called Samhain. It was once called All Hollows Eve and before that, All Saints Day. This date marks the third harvest festival and beginning of the yearly rule of the Goddess during the absense of her male counterpart (represented by the absense of the Sun and the coming of the winter months).

During this time, the veil between the worlds of the living and dead are at its thinnest, allowing the spirits of the recently deceased to return for this night and walk the Earth one last time. The Pagans use this night to honor the dead (a sort of post-funeral acknowledgement) with libations of food and drink. We light candles to sit on our doorsteps and window sills to light their way in the dark. These practices are where trick-or-treating (candy for kids dressed as spirits) and jack-o-lanterns are from.

Congrats on finding you a home! Too bad you are married Texasbelle had been trying to set Anime up, but had difficulties due to his pagan beliefs! You might have made a nice fit! Oh well maybe you know some single witches he could date!

Well Anime you told it like it is. I respect you for that even though I do not agree with the practice. Night of the Hollowed Spirits I do think Mrs. LOVE could help you find you a nice witch to go out with Hey maybe Halloween night you could hook up and have a brew and talk about it.

I could not agree more Anime ! Let us not forget the Easter Bunny
Funny how a non Christan can see these things clear as a bell but the so called church people play right into the hands of the great lie. Better to be hot or cold than luke warm !!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for your post Anime
