    Twas the Night Before Samhain'
    ?¸¸.?¸.?´??? `°?.¸¸.??

    Twas' the night of Samhain and all thought the house,
    Every creature was stirring, yes even that mouse;
    The jack o'lanterns were hung about with great care,
    In hopes the fall fairies soon would be there;
    The children were dressed in their spookiest wear,
    For in search of sweet treats on Samhain tis fair;
    It's All Hallow's night, so I leaped from my bed,
    With thoughts of enchantment running through my head;
    When across the moons face a wonder I'd spy,
    A Witch on her broom stick up in the sky;
    The moon shining on the autumn leaves as they fall,
    Gives a feelings of spirits leering within the trees so tall;
    When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But Witches and Wizards coming ever more near;
    So I grab my boots and my black cloak quick,
    I know in a moment this house they will pick;
    More rapid than bats around a grave they came,
    They whistled, and shouted, and called me by name;
    To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
    To the house they did come for a Samhain ball!
    As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
    We danced and played underneath the dark sky;
    Let us gather as friends, carve the pumpkin set near,
    This old Haunted House shall give nobody fear;
    I was dressed all black, from my head to my foot,
    No tarnish on these clothes no ashes or soot;
    Our eyes how they twinkled! Our hearts filled with delight!
    As we called forth spirits on this Samhain night!
    When we had finished our magickal spell,
    Around the cauldron some stories of monsters we’d tell;
    But soon as with time, it will rush quickly by,
    Our party was ending and home the witches did fly.
    But I heard them exclaim, ere they flew out of sight,
    "Samhain blessing to all and to all a good night."

    29th Moon Day info:

    Symbols: Octopus.
    Characteristics: The energy is unfavorable. Moon is not visible. Ocean tide's highs and lows are the strongest. Day of illusions and temptations, day when people loose energy. Sometimes it is the last day of a lunar month.

    Recommendations: Strong protection from dark energy is required. Control of thoughts, practice of restraint and humility, moderation in everything, burning of incense and candles is recommended.

    These fun apple heads are great to make with children and make an interesting Samhain decoration and they are very simple to do.

    This craft originated in the USA and has been used to make dolls for Halloween celebration. The fun thing about shrunken apple heads you never know how they will turn out until they are completely dry.

    Death is one of the most feared aspects of human existence and also inevitable. Every religious belief will have an aspect of rebirth or at least a sort of life after death. Whether that is a simple, your go to heaven or hell, the Elysian Fields; or Tartarus or more in-depth beliefs such as Karma and reincarnated, these are personal viewpoints and all are valid and part of your own mythologies reinforced by your beliefs and understandings

    Native American origin of the Thunderbird
    A Passamaquoddy Legend
    This is a legend of long, long ago times. Two Indians desired to find the origin of thunder. They traveled north and came to a high mountain. These mountains performed magically. They drew apart, back and forth, then closed together very quickly.
    One Indian said, "I will leap through the cleft before it closes. If I am caught, you co
    ntinue to find the origin of thunder." The first one succeeded in going through the cleft before it closed, but the second one was caught and squashed.
    On the other side, the first Indian saw a large plain with a group of wigwams, and a number of Indians playing a ball game. After a little while, these players said to each other, "It is time to go." They disappeared into their wigwams to put on wings, and came out with their bows and arrows and flew away over the mountains to the south. This was how the Passamaquoddy Indian discovered the homes of the Thunderbirds.
    The remaining old men of that tribe asked the Passamaquoddy Indian, "What do you want? Who are you?" He replied with the story of his mission. The old men deliberated how they could help him.
    They decided to put the lone Indian into a large mortar, and they pounded him until all of his bones were broken. They moulded him into a new body with wings like thunderbird, and gave him a bow and some arrows and sent him away in flight. They warned him not to fly close to trees, as he would fly so fast he could not stop in time to avoid them, and he would be killed.
    The lone Indian could not reach his home because the huge enemy bird, Wochowsen, at that time made such a damaging wind. Thunderbird is an Indian and he or his lightning would never harm another Indian. But Wochowsen, great bird from the south, tried hard to rival Thunderbird. So Passamaquoddies feared Wochowsen, whose wings Glooscap once had broken, because he used too much power.
    A result was that for a long time air became stagnant, the sea was full of slime, and all of the fish died. But Glooscap saw what was happening to his people and repaired the wings of Wochowsen to the extent of controlling and alternating strong winds with calm.
    Legend tells us this is how the new Passamaquoddy thunderbird, the lone Indian who passed through the cleft, in time became the great and powerful Thunderbird, who always has kept a watchful eye upon the good Indians.
