Samhain is a cross-quarter day and is one of the two holidays where the veil between the two worlds, seen and unseen, is the thinnest. This is the Sabbat where we honor our beloved dead, our ancestors, and all they mean to us. This is also the beginning of the New Year for Witches and other earth based practitioners. As the days shorten and air cools, autumn colors fade and trees become bare. This is a great night for divination and for inviting ancestors to join in the festivities. Fall vegetables are in abundance and grace the table of the last harvest Sabbat. Halloween symbols abound in our rituals as the witching hour draws nigh.
On the original quilt are a witch, gravestones, a cat, a cauldron, pumpkins, moon in phases, and the usual pentacle, tree in season, and the name of the Sabbat.
This listing is for an ACEO print of an original appliqué wall hanging.. It is one of a series of eight (8) that represent each of the eight pagan Sabbats (Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lammas, and Mabon).
