Simple Samhain Celebrations For The Beginning or Very Busy Witch or Wizard

Updated on November 25, 2011

A Candle & Cake

One quick and simple way you can easily celebrate Samhain, is to light a candle and place a small piece of cake next to it. Take a small portion of the cake for yourself and dedicate the rest of it to those who have passed on. Loved ones, friends or anyone you would like to honor on this night between the veils.

When you feel you are done with your dead feast, place the cake outside and say thanks before extinguishing the candle. Alternatively, you may also bury the cake in the ground if that feels more natural. Either way, by doing so you are assuring that any other traveling souls can enjoy your gift as well.

Midnight Meditation

I would suggest doing this on the eve of Samhain, though you can really do it any time of day or night around Samhain that you prefer.

It's simple and straightforward - sit down with no distractions, or with your family and meditate. Calm your mind and then focus on being thankful for the bountiful harvests of the year or on those you love who are no longer on this physical plane. Take the time to cherish all magick in your life, as this is one of the most powerful sabbaths. Connect to your source and be thankful.

Happy New Year!

If you didn't already know, Samhain is the true end and beginning of the year for Witches. It is this way because Samhain signals the end of fall and beginning of winter, which meant the end of the harvest season and beginning of the cold when it was time to bundle up and prepare for sowing in the spring.

So why not have yourself a proper New Years celebration with a few witchy friends? You could incorporate the fun of dressing up in costumes to confuse negative spirits and be glee, or you could simply get some sparkling cider and noisey new years toys. And don't worry, for those of you who don't want to loose track of the Juilian calender every one is so set upon, you can still celebrate everyone else's new year on December 31st.
