The Wheel Of The Year
The Triple Goddess
1 - One traddition of Samhain is to leave a plate of food outside the home of the souls that have passed.
2 - To place a candle in a window will help guide the souls to the eternal summer.
3 - If you Burry apples in the earth it will feed the souls on their journey.
4 - Story telling comes from the chieftains of long ago when in the dark months there was not much to do so they would tell stories.
5 - The green faced witch comes from the Scotts that believed that the Gailleach, the Hag who would arise from stone to walk the
earth. She had a blue gray face that was almost black, and the green comes probably from a confusion of the word glas which
means green when speaking of land, but when speaking of other things it means blue gray. And the Gailleach is an important
supernatural being in Gaelic myth.
