Samhain - October 31st

SAMHAIN – Samhain is considered by most Pagans/Wiccans to be the most important of the four ‘greater Sabbats’. It is generally observed on October 31st in the Northern Hemisphere, starting at sundown. Samhain is considered to be a celebration of death and of the dead, and it often involves paying respect to ancestors, family members, elders of the faith, friends, pets and other loved ones who have died. In some rituals the spirits of the departed are invited to attend the festivities. It is seen as a festival of darkness and death, which is balanced at the opposite point of the wheel by the spring festival of Beltane, which is celebrated as a festival of life and fertility.

Samhain marks the beginning of turning of the wheel. Samhain is thought of as the Pagan New Year, and is often celebrated as such.
