Title: Llewellyn’s Sabbat Essentials, Samhain
Category: Nonfiction, New Age, Wicca, Witchcraft, Sabbats
Review: So the reason I got this book is because Samhain or Halloween, is my favorite Sabbat of the year. Has been since I was a little girl, though I didn’t know it was a Sabbat back then. Anyway, this book is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn about Samhain. It gives a great history on it; where it began, what it is called in other countries, traditions, etc… It also gives great recipes and divination techniques. Cause as you may or may not know, the veil between worlds is the thinnest at this time of the year. Also, the book has a great array of invocations, rituals, and celebrations. Samhain is not a Sabbat of death entirely, it is one of change. It has spells to focus on ourselves as well as to communicate with our long gone ancestors. I loved this book and am looking forward to incorporating some of what I have read into my practices on Samhain. I hope you get this for your personal library. It was excellently written and definitely a great book for someone who wants more knowledge on this Sabbat.
