I don't have much to report today, Sunday's dinner with the dead was great. It wasn't quite what I expected but it was still pretty cool..
We started off by having salad and soup.. I learned that eating tomatoes in any form was considered a magical act, since the tomato was called "the love apple" and considered a poisonous fruit that only Witches could consume.
so.. We had tomato soup. :)
There was so much to learn, I tried to remember it all.. But, after we were done, the hostess gave us a paper with all the meanings behind the courses and foods. :)
Then we lit candles, turned off the lights, and listened to poems, harp music and singing while silently enjoying the company of our dead loved ones. It was pretty emotional for most, there were tears and smiles, but everyone, I think, was spending the time they needed to reconnect or just be there with their loved one.
After the silence and darkness, we came back to this world with dessert. I did have a piece of pie, it was soooo good!
Here are a couple pics I took with my phone when we were allowed.. They aren't very good but still..
This is my mom's place setting. You can kind of see her offering I sent her with. The little cup has some tea in it :)
this is really hard to see, but in the bottom left corner.. My hubby's sister Tami. She is who we honored also.
this was a great experience and I hope to do it every year.
I am truly glad I found this great group of Pagan's. Everyone is so nice and open. Willing to teach a newbie the ropes :)
There was so much more to the supper, but I just don't have the time to post it all.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you stick around.
