Samhain

Samhain tends to last 3 days in my house, and this year is no exception.

Tuesday Rye Woke up saying "Halloweeeen", it was so damn cute! We had the HE Halloween party that was fab, the kids loved it!



The dry ice was a big hit.



Yesterday was Samhain proper, we played games, ate yummy food, decorated the window, and later I lit a candle to remember the ancestors and did a guided meditation.









At bed time we read the Samhain chapter of Luna moon hare, and snuggled while I told rye stories of my parents and brothers.

This morning Rye shouted, "Yule, Yule, Yule", over and over, bless him, had to explain we had a wee while till Yule, instead today we enjoy being outside at brockhill park for forest school, began with big blobs of cold rain, but now the skies have cleared and the sun is shinning


And once home, continue our Samhain crafts, these ones concentrating on Samhain being the Celtic new year.

Oh and I expect we will be playing the cauldron game and swamp sums game too :-))
