the absolute rawness and honesty dan had in his new video, had me floored. i’m so used to dan being vague and beating around the bush and i understand he doesn’t owe us a damn thing, but the bravery it took to admit to millions of people his deepest darkest secret made me cry. Dan is such a good man, and the fact he did all of these things: write a fuckING BOOK, went on three tours that spanned three different continents, continued to make content, do live shows, tweet every once in a while to tell us that he was alive while clinically depressed are things that show me how strong he really is. dan howell cowrote a fucking book while CLINICALLY DEPRESSED. he spent months on tour while clinically depressed. i never ever want to hear another one of you bad mouthing him again. i love dan howell so much. 

🍂🎃 Samhain Altar Tips 🎃🍂

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! For many Witches, that is… Samhain is the holiday which follows Mabon (another wonderfully welcoming Autumn Sabbat)! It is during this time in which the veil is thinnest, sparking an aura of mystery in the air. The atmosphere is filled with exciting and potent energies; invoking inspiration, gratitude, and the desire for deep inner change. Honor those who have passed by creating an altar dedicated to Samhain!

Ideas for Objects:

Colors: Oranges, reds, golds, blacks, yellows, and browns. Incorporate these colors into the candles, leaves, statues, stones, photos, fabrics, or flowers you use!

Candles: Try scents that go with the season; like pumpkin spice, apple, and cinnamon, just to name a few. ~ :-)

Incense: Choose scents that invoke mysterious and warming vibes, such an Myrhh, Frankincense, or Potchouli. Oils work just as well, too!

Crystals: Smoky quartz, black obsidian, amber, clear quartz, and ruby are just a few wonderful options to consider for stones!

Divination Objects: Acknowledge the cycle of life and death by displaying your most loved divination tools/photos of these tools! This may include pendulums, ouija boards or planchettes, tarot cards or decks, a scrying mirror, or runes.

Imagery: Skulls and skeletons should be the obvious choices! Many Witches like to decorate for their Samhain celebrations by displaying them and other Halloween staples - ghosts, witches, and black cats! Try also to incorporate feathers and/or bones/horns (if real, than gathered humanely/from beings who died of natural causes).

Nature: Bring the outside, inside! Gather fallen leaves and sticks, and put together or purchase a bouquet filled with colors of the season. (Fake plants and leaves work perfectly, also)!

Food: Leave offerings for those who have passed. A basket of apples, gourds, corn, nuts, and pumpkins is a wonderful idea, as is a special goblet of wine or freshly-baked bread.

Deities: If you worship dieties, why not incorporate them into your sacred space? Add statues or photos of Gods and Goddesses such as Hecate, Hades, Anubis, and Freya!

Sentimental Things: If you choose to honor specific fallen family members or friends, think about getting a little sentimental! Include photos of them, notes or letters, special objects they loved, or their favourite foods. If you do not have any of these things, consider playing some of their favourite music or writing them a letter and placing it somewhere special in your altar. 💛

Hoping that this guide is useful to those who plan on celebrating! Have a wonderful Halloween/Dia De Los Muertos/Samhain, and stay witchy! 🍂
