Dumb Supper

table 4 candlesFor the evening of Samhain or even Nov. 1 it’s  a pagan tradition to have a dumb supper.

My circle has some extra food placed for our loved ones or ancestors to come and share on this evening. We use a variation of the ceremony here.

Some people also make specific foods that their loved ones enjoyed so they can enjoy the essence of the food. You could also partake in a cigar or pipe even if that’s something you or your loved ones enjoyed.  I used to think that maybe I shouldn’t invite certain relatives to the table because they were Christian but really the ones that are invited I know are more than happy to come by and honored we thought of them. Not everyone believes that there is an afterlife which I think we forget about. You can still talk to those who have passed on and even celebrate with them.
