What says halloween more so that carved pumpkins grinning from front steps? Have you ever wondered why though? How many pumpkins have you carved in the name of Halloween over your lifetime? Did you know that when the idea first started it was turnips and apples that were carved?

Samhain traditions. This first one is something I do with my kids. They love eating dessert first anyways so might as well start with it! A dumb supper, contrary to popular belief, is not what we call it when my family has reunions! A dumb supper is a meal that is eaten to celebrate the loved ones who have passed. It is a meal eaten in total silence (something my family knows nothing about) and in reverse, or from ending to beginning.

I missed posting for Mabon! We didn't do anything special this year. We've been dealing with chickenpox! Normally we have a small family ritual where the kids make corn husk dolls and an offering. I love this time of year. Everything is turning the most beautiful colors. Its not too cold yet but its good bonfire weather! I did do a solitary ritual to ask for blessings of good health!

I must have accidentally deleted my earlier post! Well it happens! I am happy to say that there have been a few changes over the last year to the coven. We have changed how we work things for more information on that you can check the links to the right of the page. Within the next few weeks please check those links often for new updates, there will also be posts from new authors on here as well. I look forward to sharing things with you once again. Also it is to be noted if you are only here because you have nothing better to do than troll the internet looking to pick a fight that will not be tolerated here. Threats to any author or other member of our group will be treated as a threat to harm us and will be turned over to the proper authorities. There will be no more "death threats", threats to our families, or harassment of any kind allowed. We are a peaceful group and ask that if you are not you keep moving to somewhere not here! Never piss off a witch! As well to protect ourselves we ask that any contact or comments be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer you as soon as possible. Understand that we are people with families, lives, and feelings. Treat us as such. This site is to communicate with the public, inform, share, and network. Posts will be made as we can make them. If there are links in previous posts that are not working I have to apologise as some pages were deleted and those links no longer exist and will be corrected as soon as possible.
