Hi everyone, Im here because I want to find out as much as possible about the month of October and what it means to people who believe in witchcraft, and what significance would it have to someone born on 30th October Can anyone point me in the right direction please.
October: To me, and many other cultures, it is the celebration of the Dead, and on October 31 is when the 'veil' is the lowest where spirits and the such come back to Earth. Some believe it is evil while others celebrate the dead (like Mexico) so they (the dead) can have a happy afterlife.
However, I do not think there is any significance of someone born on October 30, but every day has its day. I was born on the 23rd, which 23 seems to be a weird number, but you can find your own significance!

October 31 to November 1 is Samhain. When the people of Europe depended (mostly) on agriculture, this was a time when the crops had been harvested; preserving fruits and vegetables, and choosing which beasts to be killed for meat during the winter months.This was all done before October 31, when there would be two days of feasting. (This "time" was "stolen" by the Catholic church and turned into Halloween,) All through the night of Samhain the people would have a large bonfire, and sit or stand around the fire and remember family and friends who had died during the previous year. Also remember family and friends who had died many years before. This was European tradition, of course. Other countries had different traditions.
