Samhain has nothing to do with evil or mean practices or horrific ghoulish costumes. Witches don't have green faces. They look and live like you and I. Witchcraft is a way of life - we do our best to harm none, even in the face of adversity. Mind you when a witch decides to speak her truth...it can hurt the other party more than them..
Samhain marks the third and final harvest and the storage of previsions for the winter. The holiday is infused with positive energy and filled with hope for the future.
Samhain is a mystical and enchanted night, when magic flows. The Greater Sabbat Samhain, you get to be whomever or whatever you want to be! Dress for the Witches Ball or treating for goodies in a costume that embodies the essence of what you want to attract example eg. prosperity and success, an outfit that represents your strength and confidence or beauty and elegance.
Many witches are content with ourselves. We know where we've been, and where we are and what we are working towards in our lives, and so come dressed as you are to Samhain festivities.
