I <3 Halloween. That is all.
Autumn's Bright Hues
Every year around my birthday, I have to go leaf-peeping. Here's one of this year's spectacular results.
Samhain / Nos Galan Events
This year we're attending a lot of fun events around the New Year, aka Samhain. My talk about the holy day is on my "Works" page on this site. There's the Ancestor Feast in Warren, sponsored by Michigan Pagans / Detroit Conjure / Magical Education Council on the 22nd. That will involve food, a meeting in a hotel, raffles, a ceremony, and an ancestor shrine. There's Divination and Drag on the 23rd at the Little Space Studio in Grand Rapids. That's exactly what it sounds like, auguring the future and a Drag Show! There's also vendors and workshops. I'm doing mine on Magick 101 aka the "Baby Witch" class. The outline for that is also on the Works page here on my website. Then there's various town gatherings, Scouts, the public school's party sponsored by the Hispanic club, and the American Legion's party. For the holiday itself, there is the wonderful Beyond the Gate held at Goddess Grotto in Allegan, co-sponsored by Mother Moon and Sanctuary of the Winds. That includes workshops, rituals, a bonfire, a dumb supper, pumpkin carving, and honoring those who've gone before. Happy and blessed holy nights!
