people attended GOG's Samhain ritual and vigil. The ritual, honoring
ancestors, our own past lives, and Memory (Mnemosyne), was one of our
best. The entire ritual was performed in the dark, and the omens scryed
from a single candleflame. Altars to each of the kindreds, Memory (Mnemosyne),
Manannan, Brigid, and outsiders, were set up outside for individual
worship. A pumpkin parade down Easton Ave. in New Brunswick cheered
the locals, and later we had a traditional Spiritualist seance, a Kali
pooja, fire, and vigil until dawn, when the gates were closed (such
as they can be this time of year). 15 druids lasted until dawn. Thanks
to everyone all night who helped clean up and take down! Special thanks
to Deb, kitchen witch, who did a wonderful job. Thanks to all who invoked
in the ritual or who gave praise in the All-Praise to the ancestors,
kindred, Memory, or their own past lives.
