Wiccan Wheel Holidays - Samhain
The Wiccan Year - Samhain
The wheel is an annual cycle of seasonal festivals and of the God and Goddess.
October 31 - One of the four Greater Sabbats
(Hallow-eve, The New Year)
This festival is a time to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on, it’s a time to pay respects to ancestors, family members, elders of the faith, friends, pets, and other loved ones who have died.
This is the time when the Goddess gives the reins to the God. During this time the God will stand at the gates between the worlds.
The veil is very thin during Samhain. The past year is dying. Now we look forward to its rebirth.
Colors for Samhain are black, red and orange.
