Happy Halloween and Samhain beautiful witches (the good ones – in costumes or practitioners) and special souls. May your night be magickal and filled with trickery (also the good one) and wonder. Despite occurring at similar times and containing similar themes, Samhain and Halloween actually are not the same. Halloween, short for All Hallow’s Eve, is celebrated on and around Oct. 31 and tends to be more family-focused. On the other hand, Samhain is more religious in focus, spiritually observed by practitioners.
For weeks now, houses and front lawns have been decorated with spooky displays as children and adults alike get their costumes together to trick or treat. It has triggered a few laughs walking Cinnamon and she didn’t know what to make of the Grim Reapers pictured above. One day they were slightly swaying in the wind which made them look even spookier. A full on Mohawk all the way down her spine and a growl, followed by a bark and getting the hell out of there was the end result. Other times, a skeleton wearing tennis shoes and a baseball cap, speaking skulls on the ground, or giant black spiders moving in the wind were equally unpopular, hahaha. I was thinking about taking Cinnamon trick or treating, but that would be a disaster waiting to happen. We are still working on our skills of getting used to other people and other animals. It’s a hit and miss and she reads their energy. Surprise there. Plus we will be gone on our little trip anyways, but this little bandit will make out either way and I am sure a few treats will find her way to her.
