Not Into Halloween? Here are 13 Rituals to Celebrate Samhain | Gaia

By: Gaia Staff

Samhain is a time-honored tradition followed by witches, Wiccans, ancient druids and countless other modern pagans across the world, celebrated as October turns to November. Samhain is a festival of the Dead, meaning “Summer’s End,” and though you’re probably tempted to pronounce it “sam-hane,” it’s actually pronounced saah-win or saah-ween.

What is a Samhain Celebration?

Tradition holds that Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year, and with this transition it’s also celebrated as the beginning of the spiritual new year for practitioners, which is also why it’s nicknamed “The Witches’ New Year.”

How to Celebrate Samhain

Samhain is typically celebrated by preparing a dinner to celebrate the harvest. The holiday is meant to be shared with those who have passed on as well as those still with us. Set a place at the table for those in the spiritual plane, providing an offering for them upon every serving throughout the meal. In addition to those who have passed, invite friends and family to enjoy the feast with you. Typical beverages include mulled wine, cider, and mead, and are to be shared with the Dead throughout the meal.

Despite occurring at similar times and containing similar themes, Samhain and Halloween actually are not the same holiday. Halloween, short for All Hallow’s Eve, is celebrated on and around

Haunted Places in Germany

Nothing raises the hair on your arms or neck like a really good ghost story. Shivering with fright around a crackling campfire or in a dimly lit room during a slumber party is a rite of passage for young children.
Today, Western culture is experiencing a heightened interest in the paranormal, evidenced by the proliferation of paranormal television programs, research groups, movies and genre novels – think Vampire Diaries. Not all travelers are looking for a sunny seaside resort or an exquisite shopping experience. Some are intrigued by creepy legends, haunted castles, crypto zoology and strange folklore, all widely available throughout Europe. While America has its share of haunted locations, Europe is unparalleled as a paranormal destination. From England’s famous crop circles and Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster, to legendary Romanian vampires and Germany’s Frankenstein Castle, the European continent is full of spooky locations.Castle Frankenstein

Haunted places in Germany:

  • B215: (between Stedebergen and Dörverden) near Verden/Aller is known to be a road with strange happenings. Fact to this day is, that this stretch of road has had more accidents (with deaths) then any other area of this road. Witnesses tell of a white lady appearing on the road between 2 and 3 am if you are driving to fast. It’s unknown if this apparition is suppose to be a warning to drivers or if it actually caused the accidents.
  • Babenhausen Barracks (German : Babenhausen Kaserne) – now a museum – The ghosts of German soldiers, some in World War II era uniforms, have been reported. Lights are said to turn off and on by themselves and voices are heard in the basement. Footsteps and commands are allegedly heard at night, supposedly without physical cause. Legend has it that if a soldier happens to visit the museum and pick up a telephone, a woman will at times be heard “talking backwards”, unintelligible, in neither German nor English. The town was the site of a witch burned at the stake in the 19th century, and her ghost is said to have seduced, and then killed, several German soldiers since then.
  • Bernkastel-Kues: Cemetery: At this cemetery, you may see The White Lady of Bernkastel-Kues with a long white dress floating from one to another. The story is that at times she cries. However, another story about this ghost concerns a hunter. He was terrified when he first saw the ghost and saw at it. The next day he was taken to Koblenz, a military hospital, with swollen legs and a high fever. He was rambling on and on about a white lady that attacked him. He died.
  • Berlin:
