This is a very serious question, and I'm hoping to get some good tips from someone a little more experienced than me... I've been a pagan for about a year and a half now, and I've noticed that most pagans LOVE the sabbat Samhain. However, I do not. I know it's all about celebrating ancestors and the dead, but it just gives me the creeps. My last Samhain celebration did not go well, and I don't really trust my ancestors. Can your ancestors be ill-intentioned? Can they be dangerous? I'm worried about working with them again. I don't want to skip the sabbat, but I might just do something really simple instead. Any advice for working with scary, ornery ancestors?
