If so would you please, please include my family in your ritual blessings? I am begging, we desperately need them. Please do not include us in any christian blessings or prayers, you would only be wasting your time. I reject any and all blessings of a christian nature, as you people are f...ing nutcases. Sane blessings from a natural place requested ONLY!!!!! Thanks so very much! BLESSED BE!!Answer Question

In our family, we have a big meal, and set food outside for passing souls. We also make 'straw' gods to protect us throughout the winter. Since it is our 'new year', we also discuss what changes we'd like to make and set new goals. We do the trick or treat stuff, too.

Wow, I take blessings from who ever wants to give them. I know that R&B section gets wound up tighter than a two dollar watch but I wouldn't go so far as to say every Christian is like that. Heck most of the Christians I know IRL and on CM are very intelligent and really do care. There are some in every religion who are overbearing. As long as people are giving a blessing to help something specific in my life, I will gladly accept it. Now if they say they hope I find God or hope I turn from my wicked ways then yea, the claws come out. But for the most part if I need a blessing for something specific, like I am sick or having problems, I take them all no matter what the source.

I am not sure what kind of blessings you are looking for, but a Samhain ritual is not likely to be the best time for a general blessing for your family (which is all we could offer without knowing your problems). I am guessing you don't know much about the holiday of Samhain. General good energy can be sent out by Pagans at any time of course, but the focus of Samhain makes it not the most likely time for Pagans to be performing general blessings. I am sorry that your experience with Christians has been negative, but you can reject those blessings yourself, without insulting people. That kind unpleasantness is unlikely to make many people feel a lot of empathy for you, even if they too have had unpleasant experiences with Christians.
