Living in Florida, I'm not so connected to this turning of the wheel in the physical sense but it is my favorite part. There is a deep spiritual connection for me that has no basis in where I live and what I find myself doing in this life since I can plant and harvest pretty much year-round. The thin veil of Samhain is refreshing and renewing and so many people need it more than ever. I just looked at some posts about Halloween and thought some were silly. Halloween is a social construction just like Christmas. Some are quicker to blame society for the consumer take-over of Christmas but still want to blame the devil for the stupidity Halloween has become. What say you Pagans?
