Samhainmarks the end and the beginning of the wheel of the year, just the same as new years eve. Rituals begin after dark peaking at midnight and often go on into the next day, 1st of November, which is the new year. In older traditions, a day doesn’t actually begin until sundown, and doesn’t end until the next sunset.
Samhainis also a time when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is at its thinnest, a time when the spirits of loved ones can return and so a special place is set at the table for any who so wish to join the feast.
Traditionally a candle to guide the spirits of loved ones home is lit in the window and also deters any unwanted spirits and is this is the origin of the jack-o-lantern. It is also a time when the spirits can talk through us more easily and all types of divination such as scrying, tarot, runes etc are used.
It is a time to look for wisdom and guidance. A time to tie up loose ends, pay unpaid debts, finish arguments etc, a time to put everything to rest.
