17 Nov How to celebrate Samhain (the witches Halloween)..?‍♀️?⤵️

One simple way to celebrate Samhain this evening..?‍♀️?⤵️

So last night we kicked off our Samhain celebrations with a traditional ‘Dumb Supper’ ?This is usually made up of baked seasonal veggies – I used Squash, potatoes, sprouts & Kale. ??It’s known as ‘Dumb’ supper because you eat in silence to welcome in any messages from spirits or ancestors…tonight the veil between worlds is at it’s thinnest. ?? We also turned the lights off and ate in candle-light to honour our ancestors who didn’t have electricity & to feel closer to their way of life. ?

It’s hard to imagine a life without the luxury of Tesco or Sainsbury’s ?…our ancestors would gather their final harvest this time of year and know it was to last them the whole winter. ?❄️ It’s crazy when you think of it like that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After we finished our Dumb Supper we shared stories of our ancestors – we spoke about how Lisa’s heritage may have been from Bean Farmers ??‍?(which is pretty cool!) and I reflected on some of the lessons gained from my grandma.?‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Tonight I’ve invited a few friends over to enjoy Simple Samhain Soup. ??Keep your celebrations simple and meaningful, finding gratitude in the warmth of a hot drink or the kindness between friends ?
