*Review originally posted on TheliaTarot.com* I got to go “witch store hunting” with my cousin a couple of weekends ago and this book was calling me for sure. Samhain was right around the corner so I had to buy it. And it definitely was worth it! This book goes into detail of not only how Samhain is practiced now, but also throughout history, how different cultures viewed the holiday, and how it evolved into Halloween. Some of the information I already knew, but there was a lot I didn’t know and was glad to have read this book. On top of giving the history, this book also looks spells and divinations, rituals, and prayers and invocations. I’m excited to try some of these out and a lot of them are pretty simple. The only downside for me was that I bought this book too late in the month to prepare some spells, but I will know for the next year, and for the next book I want to purchase. I also love the recipe and crafts in this book. They are fun, simple, and easy to follow. I’m definitely going to try a few soon! The only thing I didn’t like about this book was not having a prayer for Hades (just Persephone). I wish there was a little more about Hades in it, but it was still enjoyable.
