A SAMHAIN BASIC RITUAL FOR ALL

During Samhain it is sacramented tradition to summon your ancestors and break bread with them asking for the blessing of antiquity to be brought forth. Sundown on Oct.31 is the beginning of Samhain when the veils between the two worlds are the thinnest. Place some bread preferably baked by thine own hand or fruit and 200 ml glass of red wine ANYTHING THAT IS SUITABLE FOR FEASTING IS FINE BUT THESE ARE THE BASIC REQUIREMENT at your Alter in the morning or an appropriate place of peace if an alter is not available. Light an orange Candle and burn some white sage as the sun begins to set.
