Samhain Ancestor Apple

$18.00Price

Before there was the Halloween that we know today, people celebrated the days from October 31st - November 2nd as Samhain. Pronounced “sow-win”, the Gaelic word translates as “summer’s end”. 

The pagan festival originating from Celtic spiritual tradition marks the midpoint between fall equinox and winter solstice. It’s the time of year to finish the season’s harvests and bring the cows in from the pasture. The Celtic year is divided into two halves - the light and the dark. Samhain marks the beginning of the dark part of the year, when people prepare for the less abundant season ahead.

Celebrators of Samhain believe that it’s a time of year when the barriers between the physical and spiritual world break down, allowing more interaction between the living and the dead. The doors to the Otherworld - the realm of deities and the dead - are opened, allowing spirits to more easily enter our world. This liminal period enabled both ancestors to visit their families and malicious spirits to haunt townspeople. The customs of Samhain include rituals to welcome ancestors and honor deceased loved ones while also taking action to thwart off and protect against the evil spirits.

 

We have brought back our limited Edition Ancestor Apple just in time for the Sabbat. Perfect to pay respects and homage to those that came before us. To ensure delivery before October 31st we advise all orders to be completed by Octover 21st 2022.
