SLPS celebrated Samhain Saturday, October 29, 2016 at the Temple of the Sun and Moon. The altar was set with Samhain decorations. Pumpkins from the garden gave the right touch of the season, the final harvest, to the altar of life and death.

Veles, the Slavic god of the underworld was invoked as the primary deity. Sitting between spinal column candles, representative of the dead, Veles opened the door and allowed the beloved Kin to visit as the members sang along to “Samhain” from the album Cycle of the Seasons by Lisa Thiel. Bloody Mary’s and maple cookies were offered, in symbol of the body and blood of sacrifice and gratitude.

the feasts included apple pear salad, tri tip steak, and potatoes au gratin.
