Wondering if there are other folks on here who are neo-pagan or something similar? Samhain (the holiday that's a precursor to Halloween) is coming up, and it's all about celebrating the ancestors and the beloved dead. This will be my first year without Skip. Unsurprisingly, I'm not looking forward to it.

If you're pagan, how have you/are you planning on coping with Samhain?

If you're not pagan, how have you handled other special days?

Hi, Melissa....I'm kind of a loose semi-pagan and so was my husband.  Just now I smelled cigarette smoke in the house (I don't smoke) which means that he was here.  I also dream about him more this time of year.

I don't do anything particularly for Samhain, and neither of us did much about conventional holidays.  I do observances for his birthday, death day, and our wedding anniversary.  It's mostly about flowers and candles displayed with his photo.  Those are the days that mattered most to us.  You might find something like that to be healing for you, along with perhaps inviting friends over for a special meal of something he particularly liked.
