The Temple’s Cancer Ministry offers the following downloads for parents to celebrate Mabon with their younger children.
Samhain is the last of our three harvest celebrations. It’s the time of the year we harvest the very last of our fruits and vegetables. It is a very special celebration for most Pagans and Witches. This is our New Year and a time when we honor our ancestors. Because the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest this time of year, it allows all our loved ones to be close to us. We throw big feasts and invite all the people we’ve loved and lost to come and join us, in their honor. We tell stories about them, set a place for them at our holiday tables and decorate our altars with pictures of them. It truly is one of the most sacred celebrations we have.
This download consists of a 6-page ritual outline, 4-page instructions for making Samhain lanterns, and a 3-page recipe for 1930s vintage-era “crazy cake.” All proceeds support the Temple of Witchcraft’s ongoing work.
