Samhain 2011

Samahain altar.
Yes, Halloween has come and gone, but I like to follow Archaeoastronomy's Almanac when it comes to marking the seasons. Today is Samhain. I like having the Ancestors arranged from Halloween until today. There are photos in sight year round and then there are others that only come out for Samhain. The youths are included in the making of this altar because not only Blood Ancestors are here, but also Lineage Ancestors ~ people who have influenced us and shaped our lives in different ways. Tom still has George Carlin. Ian wanted Paul Gray of Slipknot. Bennie asked for John Lennon. With Halloween being over-commercialized (What? Here? In America?!), honoring our Ancestors on this quiet, planetary-aligned day holds more meaning for us.

The Familial Ancestors.
Our Lineage Ancestors.
