    I ve read through most of the lore about the season, written in Silver s typical chatty style, and found it an easy read It s a fun book, nothing to take too seriously, there are a lot of games, spells and other assorted crafts that are perfect for little ones My favorite section is the recipes specifically the desserts that come with cute little enchantments.Although, a slight caveat is coming here The recipe for Candied Love Apples features a big oopsie makes me wonder if the author eve I ve read through most of the lore about the season, written in Silver s typical chatty style, and found it an easy read It s a fun book, nothing to take too seriously, there are a lot of games, spells and other assorted crafts that are perfect for little ones My favorite section is the recipes specifically the desserts that come with cute little enchantments.Although, a slight caveat is coming here The recipe for Candied Love Apples features a big oopsie makes me wonder if the author ever tried to make these herself It says to place the sugars in a pan on medium heat for 8 10 minutes and then dip the apples Uh, uh Doesn t work Trust me on this Trylike 20 30 minutes of continues boiling and NO stirring It also would ve helped to have a tip or two about using a candy thermometer to test for doneness or at the very least use the old drop in cold water and it s done when you see threads Trust me on this WEAR SOCKS AND SHOES AT ALL COSTS I make candles and should have known better but I m also blond and tend to forget these things No bare feet, no pretty little open toed sandals They do not mix with this recipe I discovered the hard way that hot candy dropped on bare toesies hurts like a b stard There s nothing like losing a layer of skin to get one hopping After taking a few deep breaths and ignoring the searing pain I was able to compose myself enough to concentrate complete the enchantment for love and wisdom something I m in obvious need of You ve been warned

    This was such a fun, informative book, right up the alley I needed with research for a witchy book I m writing It gave me the background information I was looking for without overloading me with detail, it gave me some spells, some tasty recipes that I look forward to trying, and some ritual work All of these things are what I was looking for going into this book and that s what I took out of it.RavenWolf strips away the pretense of witchcraft, removing the stigma and the lore, and gives you t This was such a fun, informative book, right up the alley I needed with research for a witchy book I m writing It gave me the background information I was looking for without overloading me with detail, it gave me some spells, some tasty recipes that I look forward to trying, and some ritual work All of these things are what I was looking for going into this book and that s what I took out of it.RavenWolf strips away the pretense of witchcraft, removing the stigma and the lore, and gives you the most basic of information going back to the roots of the practice Everything she provided had an origination in the pre Christian era and, of course, she s plain with telling about the Christians coming in and annihilating the crap out of everyone and everything who didn t fall in line to their way of thinking, turning these practices back into the shadows or absorbing them into Christian practices as a means of convertingpeople.I really liked the history of things, the why things evolved the way they did, what something meant then and what it means now It was all very enlightening and lucky for me, my kitten shredded a couple pages of this library book so I ended up having to purchase it The jerk But I m happy I have a copy now to reference whenever I need instead of just my notes Great information about my favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN is a must read for any knowledge junkie looking for a littledepth in their holiday.4.5

    I forgot how much I like Silver Ravenwolf s writing style Conversational and friendly, like she s talking TO the reader rather than AT the reader For a non fiction writer, that s a difficult task indeed She presents topics in an entertaining and very non pretentious way I remember disliking Cunninham because his writing was dry and he came across as kind of, wellsnobby Maybe that s just me, though.

    The fact aside I have problems with the constant forced humor, the author doesn t appear to have done her homework very well.I m aware about her standing in the Pagan particularly New Age and Wiccan community, yes It doesn t change the fact that the book reads as though the author had read theough a few Wikipedia articles and somehow woven an entire often false narrative around them, merging them into one big monster, or in Lovecraftian terms, the thing that should not be I cannot The fact aside I have problems with the constant forced humor, the author doesn t appear to have done her homework very well.I m aware about her standing in the Pagan particularly New Age and Wiccan community, yes It doesn t change the fact that the book reads as though the author had read theough a few Wikipedia articles and somehow woven an entire often false narrative around them, merging them into one big monster, or in Lovecraftian terms, the thing that should not be I cannot say how much about Celtic or Roman culture and spirituality is wrong in detail but I know that every single time the Germanic or Norse are mentioned the author is completely wrong Not sure where on earth she gets her info In my case I was raised Saxon polytheist and later studied through the most tedious historical documents and textbooks you can imagine So a bitprofound, perhaps, than what reads like made up gobbledeegook In any case, I have not read another book on specifically Halloween Samhain or in Germanic Idisenblot, but the author didn t know that from a Pagan perspective I am curious whether any others exist and shall in that case compare them to each other Standing on its own, however, this one was okay if I m being very generous

    I know that there are a lot of haters when it comes to Silver s books, but I m never ashamed to admit that I ve loved her writing since I picked up my copy of To Ride a Silver Broomstick New Generation Witchcraft all those years ago HALLOWEEN SPELLS, RECIPES CUSTOMS is a very fun book, as well as informative She does most of her own illustrations, and they mesh with her writing beautifully As much as you think you know about Halloween Samhain, I ll bet that you ll still learn something I know that there are a lot of haters when it comes to Silver s books, but I m never ashamed to admit that I ve loved her writing since I picked up my copy of To Ride a Silver Broomstick New Generation Witchcraft all those years ago HALLOWEEN SPELLS, RECIPES CUSTOMS is a very fun book, as well as informative She does most of her own illustrations, and they mesh with her writing beautifully As much as you think you know about Halloween Samhain, I ll bet that you ll still learn something new here A bit of history, a yummy new recipe, or maybe even a new way to to try that spell you just can t get to take It s a great book for everybody, Christian or Pagan

    Okay, I m not a random Silver Ravenwolf basher, but if Llewellyn was trying to launch a sabbat series, and started as it should be with Hallowe en, I really wish they d have taken aserious author While the book is okay it s only okay and doesn t rise to the levels of quality in Lammas, Beltane and Yule It s too bad, but I didn t want a fun and silly book, I wanted something with a bitdepth to match the rest of the series Still, there s a lot of mythology here, and if you can Okay, I m not a random Silver Ravenwolf basher, but if Llewellyn was trying to launch a sabbat series, and started as it should be with Hallowe en, I really wish they d have taken aserious author While the book is okay it s only okay and doesn t rise to the levels of quality in Lammas, Beltane and Yule It s too bad, but I didn t want a fun and silly book, I wanted something with a bitdepth to match the rest of the series Still, there s a lot of mythology here, and if you can handle Silver Ravenwolf s voice over monologues, you can find a few nuggets in this book

    You should never judge a book by it s cover and in this case, that s good advice The cover does not do justice to the information contained within and that s really a shame because I wonder how many people have passed on this book because of it It s the most comprehensive book on Halloween that I ve found, while being easy to connect with and enjoyable to read The first three chapters are packed with info about Halloween s history, from Paleopagan practices to modern day traditions The book You should never judge a book by it s cover and in this case, that s good advice The cover does not do justice to the information contained within and that s really a shame because I wonder how many people have passed on this book because of it It s the most comprehensive book on Halloween that I ve found, while being easy to connect with and enjoyable to read The first three chapters are packed with info about Halloween s history, from Paleopagan practices to modern day traditions The book continues to discuss divination, recipes, spells, and how you can honor those who have left us I was drawn to the defense spell, the crossing ritual, and the solitary ritual, which you can use either as they are presented or as a template and personalize
