Samhain Swap Details

Date: 10-31-12
Names: Samhain, All Souls Day, All Saints Day, Witches' New Year

Excerpted from Wikipedia:
Samhain is one of the eight annual festivals, often referred to as 'Sabbats', observed as part of the Wiccan Wheel of the Year. It is considered by most Wiccans to be the most important of the four 'greater Sabbats'. It is generally observed on October 31 in the Northern Hemisphere, starting at sundown. Samhain is considered by some Wiccans as a time to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on, and it often involves paying respect to ancestors, family members, elders of the faith, friends, pets and other loved ones who have died. In some rituals the spirits of the departed are invited to attend the festivities. It is seen as a festival of darkness, which is balanced at the opposite point of the wheel by the spring festival of Beltane, which Wiccans celebrate as a festival of light and fertility.

As this is a  very short swap, we are going to do a size-free, goodwill swap. This means you and your partner determine what is appropriate for swapping between yourselves. There is really a 1 pt small minimum but most people will likely exceed this by at least 1 other small. How big you go is up to you. Offer what you feel comfortable, it is on everyone to just craft the best you can no matter how many or how few objects.

Plan to post updates on progress weekly, make sure you are getting DC numbers on in-country packages and keeping receipts for out of country swaps.Also please make sure to take pics of what you send and what you receive to post in the gallery.

I'll fill out my questionnaire tonight. I agree a small to medium would be good for me to.
