Halloween Petition

Samhain

Hello, all!

Sorry about the lack of posts going out here recently. There simply hasn’t been anything really to report. The writing progresses, but there hasn’t been anything to really talk about. And there hasn’t been anything of a paranormal nature that I’ve wanted to post here. Now, this morning…

It’s come to my attention that there’s a petition going around trying to get Halloween moved. The point of this, apparently, is to move Halloween – Samhain, for those of us who are pagan – from the last day of the month to the final Saturday of the month.

No!

Samhain is a religious holiday for some of us. Let’s move Christmas to the last Saturday of December. How about that? No? Then leave Samhain alone, too! Again, it’s a sacred day for some of us. Have the common decency to honor that.

If you see the petition, please don’t sign it. Please speak out against it.

Blessed Samhain!

Blessed Samhain to all of my fans, and readers! Today is my favorite day of the year. It’s Desirée Lee‘s favorite day, too. It’s known to most people as Halloween. We usually refer to it by it’s traditional name of Samhain.

For those of you not familiar with the true meaning of the day, please read on. Today has nothing to do with horror, or monsters. Samhain (pronounced Sow-in) was originally a festival celebrating the harvest time, and marking the beginning of the dark half of the year. It’s also a time when the veil between our world, and the spirit world is very thin. This thinning of the veil makes it easier to communicate with otherworldly beings, and makes it easier for those beings to visit our world. It’s a time of magick and mysticism, fun and revelry.

Yes, I know I spelled “magick” above with a “k” at the end. “Magic” is smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand illusion. It’s stage craft. “Magick” is the real thing. It’s the manipulation of energy to obtain a goal.

Again, I wish all of my fans and readers a very happy, safe, and Blessed Samhain – regardless of how you celebrate today, and even if you don’t!
