Samhain Activities - Mute Supper

Thursday, October 23, 2008
Probably one of the most common traditions in modern Wicca and Paganism is the Mute Supper. This being a plate of food that is set out for any visiting spirits on Samhain night, specifically spirits of ancestors that have passed on.

This is one tradition that we try to follow every year. We do not always have the opportunity to all sit down and have a meal together as a family, but we do our best to make time to have dinner with the family, both the living and the passed on, at Samhain.

There are no set rules for this activity. But our Mute Supper is never solemn. We believe in honoring the dead through laughter and drink. A lot like an Irish wake. Of course your Supper can be solemn if that is what works for you.

But either way take the time this Samhain to lay out a supper for the dead. Honor your ancestors with this ritual.

Blessed Be!
