Samhain 2011

Samhain 2011 was our first open gathering to honour the ancestors.  The Samhain gathering and open ritual hosted by Chesterfield Pagans was a blustery night, those who attended were treated to a wild night of winds, a profound ritual around the fire honouring the ancestors, a multitude of folks in fancy dress – the little ones deserve an especial mention for their enthusiasm here – a pumpkin carving competition, prayers and poems, and beautifully decorated ancestor shrine in remembrance of those passed on.

See below for a selection of peoples photographs of the event:
