I would like to be more informed about what other people do to celebrate Halloween/Samhain, etc. Can you please share with me what you do on this holiday? Christian groups always claim this to be a "Pagan" holiday. Of course, the Christian holidays (Christmas, Easter, etc) also have "Pagan" roots but have had Christian elements added to them. Please don't bash me because I am a Christian, I really just want some education on your beliefs surrounding this holiday. Thanks!Answer Question
because of what samhain is, it's a tween time (not summer, not winter) this is when the veil is thinest. Spirit activity is higher. Tween times are a little hard to explain LOL but if you want more of an explination, I'll gladly try.
It's also about harvest. but mostly celebrating your ancestors (as the veil is thinist, most think it's a great time to comunicate with those ancestors)
one tradition is to leave a feast (or just plate of food) out for the dead.
I'm Christian by definition that I believe that Jesus died for my sins, but I still honor many old religions, (not thier gods but their practices) I do leave a plate of food out and say a little prayer for the dead.
