For many people, their biggest holidays of the year are things like Christmas or Thanksgiving. I don't actually celebrate Christmas, and I don't do much for Thanksgiving now that most of my family lives so far away. Instead, my biggest holiday is Samhain, known to many as Halloween.
For Pagans, this is a significant day--sometimes called the Witch's New Year. It is both the end of the old year and the beginning of the new, and so it can be somewhat bittersweet. We let go of the past, say goodbye to those we have lost, speak to our ancestors...and embrace our witchy roots. Then we open ourselves to the possibilities of the year to come.
At my house, I'll be celebrating with Blue Moon Circle. We will have a deeper, more solemn ritual than usual...hopefully around a bonfire outside, if the weather cooperates. Then we'll come in and feast, of course!
I can't invite you to the feast, but I can invite you to help me celebrate by sharing a Samhain/Halloween Prize Pack with one lucky winner. (US only, I'm afraid, but as always, if you are outside the US, feel free to enter and if you win, I'll send you something cool and lightweight.)
Look what Mystic put together!
|Samhain Prize Pack--Cat not included|
There's a cute Halloween goodie bag, a copy of EITHER The Witch's Broom or one of the last remaining print copies of Circle, Coven & Grove (winner's choice), a little black cat, and a broom pen. Plus a little Halloween candy, of course.
It is easy to enter. You can tweet about the contest, share it on Facebook, or, join this blog (look to the left). For extra points, you can buy a copy of either book (obviously, you'll have to get the ebook version of CC&G, since the print one isn't available anymore) and/or leave a NEW review of any of my books. Heck, you get four points just for commenting here, and telling me what you like best about this time of year. So what are you waiting for? Let's celebrate!
