All Hallows Night
If you have not yet performed your Samhain ritual, follow the link to a very cool one I found at wicca.com. It basically involves invoking the Goddess and God and asking them to watch over you and your ancestors as the year dies and the new year is reborn. It allows you to let go of the past and consider what you'd like to accomplish in the coming year as well as reflecting on your family and loved ones who have passed on. Even if you can't gather all the items and prepare the altar, it's worth reading just for reflection and awareness. (If you can do the candles, though, it's pretty cool to watch them almost go out and then flare back up again!)
