consider the modern Wiccan tradition (that’s the tradition which has
grown up over the last century or so) at this time of year primarily
because Gardner saw the Solstices and Equinoxes as Lesser. For
him, Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh and Samhain were the “Greater” wheel
I find that approach confusing in truth.
Just as I consider the concept of Samhain as New Year odd. In my
heart, New Year is a time of hope and promise. It encapsulates
the possibilities of the future. For me, Samhain is part of the
“dying” year, hence the brief return of those gone beyond.
ever I respect and revere those choices of belief made by my fellow
man, and held in trust and faith – whether I understand them or
not. Maybe those who hold Samhain as the start of things
see my belief as weird. And if they do, I hope they view me in
the same light as I view them. When those of differing
traditions, faiths, beliefs and sources of inspiration can each hold
the other equally and respectfully holy, we have a world that wins for
all of us. And that’s the world I want to live in.
