CUUPs Samhain Sunday, October 22. Everyone is welcome to join us. Samhain means “End of Summer” and is the third and final Harvest. The Dark half of the year commences on this Sabbat. It is a magical interval when the mundane laws of time and space are temporarily suspended, and the Thin Veil between the worlds is lifted. It is said that communicating with ancestors and departed loved ones is easy at this time, for they journey through this world on Samhain. The doors open at 5:30pm and the Circle starts at 6pm.  A potluck dinner will follow around 7 pm.
