Ok lets see. Leave food an water out for the dead. Dont blow out any candles that night. Be sure not to throw out water as ya might upset the dead who are visitin. Put extra plate on the table for those who cant be there. Dont buy salt on that day as its bad luck. Dont comb ur hear that night as the cryin woman will want to take the strands an that can send anyone into madness. Put a turnup by the front door for the dead. Its the only safe time to bring holy into the house. Any prayers to the saints get heard a lot louder so be sure 2 only ask for what u need not nesseserily want. Keep the dreams of that nite to urself. If ur drinkin dont finish your mug as yur supposed to leave some for the ansestors.

OMG! So many of the old písteogs from my granddad have just come flooding back right there! Sorry just got me there for a second.

My Samhain was very well spent with visits from the Ancestors and time spent with some friends as well. Mind you that was some time ago as we're in May now...

Thank you for sharing those customs Jmcdonagh. Smile
