Solitary Samhain Activities
If you celebrate Samhain alone, the occasion will be more contemplative than at a party. But nothing can engage your belief in the magic of the season as strongly as your own solitary celebration with no distractions as you experience a sabbat that you have tailored exactly to your own tastes.

Samhain Supper Recipes
Samhain is the doorway into winter when we pagans and Wiccans gather to remember our ancestors, to take stock of the old year, and to welcome the new year. On Samhain night, you want to serve a hearty, warm meal with a light and spicy dessert to follow.

How to Decorate A Samhain Altar
Whether you have one Samhain altar or several, the ways to decorate it are numerous. Your altar can be large or small. As you look ahead to the approach of Samhain, you might want to create an altar in advance based on the following lists of suggestions.

Burning Incense is a Health Risk
Buddhists, Hindus, Catholics, and pagans all use incense on their altars. However, new studies show that excessive use of incense can be as harmful to your respiratory tract as smoking cigarettes.

How to Choose Your Craft Name
A craft name is a pagan or Wiccan alias. You don't have to have one. But a well-chosen one will be a source of spiritual strength for you. Here are some potential sources for your craft name.

What is a Craft Name
A craft name is a name that you create and use to identify yourself within the pagan community. Think your craft name as an alias, a magical name, a witch name, or a pen name, if you wish.

How to Plan Your Samhain Party
Though Samhain is a deeply spiritual and contemplative time for pagans, it also marks the new year and is a great time for a party. Here is a sample plan for a house party that you can adapt to your own circumstances to make your Samhain gathering a night to remember.

Full Blood Moon of October
The October full moon is the Blood Moon or Hunterís Moon. This month the harvesting turns to hunting to lay away enough food for winter. We celebrate the bond between humans and animals. Work magic for the well-being of pets and livestock. Identify what animal energies you need in your life.

Mabon Gratitude Ritual
Mabon is the autumn equinox where the Wheel of the Year rests briefly in balance and day and night are of equal length. To help the Wheel roll ahead toward night, you recite a litany of gratitude. This solitary ritual can be adapted for a family or other small group.

Guided Meditation for Mabon
This guided meditation puts you together with the God at Mabon, which is the second harvest of the year. Here, the Lord wears the persona of the Steward of the Earth. He shows you how to give of your own abundance to increase it tenfold.
