When is Samhain? October 31, 2021 (Sunday)
What is Samhain? Samhain is a Gaelic festival that marks the end of the harvest season and the very beginning of winter or the darker half of the year.

Orange is used to bring new opportunity into your life and to bolster creativity and self expression.
Purple: Purple is a color that is associated with psychic power and spiritual connectivity. Use the power of the purple candle to unlock your ability to sense the spirits around you while the veil is at its thinnest. Boost your
