Here's a picture of the pumpkin and pumpkin lantern (both have tealights inside):
|Came out a bit blurry but nice effect!|
I also had an orange candle, a green candle and a Yankee Witches' Brew one. Here's a photo of some of the decorations.
I usually bake gingerbread and this year I made gingerbread skeletons, a recipe that I previously used in 2015 and 2016. I had a bit of trouble with the mixture so didn't make as many as planned. I ended up making 5 gingerbread men and a couple of "disembodied heads"! lol. Here's a pic of the first lot of gingerbread:

The day after Samhain (Thursday) I went up to my favourite nature reserve and took some sunset pics. I like to do that on some of the sabbats and I last went around Madron. Here are a couple of the photos:

Hope everyone had a good Hallowe'en/Samhain! (Or Beltane depending on what you were celebrating!). :)
We're properly descending into the "dark time" of the year now, and the next sabbat will be Yule which is about celebrating the return of the light. (And then it will be Christmas right after!) .
