This particular witch did the following:

1. Participate in a gathering celebrating Samhain (the name of the holiday, not the "Lord of the Dead"), in which we honored our ancestors and loved ones who have passed. And no, there was no sacrificing of people or animals, nor any sex involved.

2. Had a secular Halloween party at our house, with family, friends, lots of yummy food, and of course giving out candy to the cute little Trick or Treaters!

Well, I carved pumpkins with the kids, did some laundry, and chomped trick or treat candy with them after a Taco Bell run. Then I watched TV until I got bored, and went to bed.

OOOOOO...spooky, I know, right?

Had a 6 hr roadtrip returning my daughter to college after a very nice visit.
Just missed the trik or treaters, sad face.
Missed Samhain rituals Sat. as well waiting for same daughters date to show and she got stood up.

Same thing everyone else does on Halloween.
Samhain isn't until Nov 8th this year.
So few Pagans seem to know that ALL Pagan holidays are actually based on astrological occurrences.

Samhain: Sun is at 15 Scorpio
Yule: Sun is at 1 Capricorn
Imbolc: Sun is at 15 Aquarius
Ostara: Sun is at 1 Aries
Beltaine: Sun is at 15 Taurus
Litha: Sun is at 1 Cancer
Lammas: Sun is at 15 Leo
Mabon: Sun is at 1 Libra
