Recently, on a predominantly non-pagan message board, someone asked for suggestion on how to "celebrate" Samhain without spending too much money. Many of the respondents gave a run-down of what they do, personally, at this time of year, as did I.
I generally sit out on fire festivals. This involves staying out-of-doors from sun down to sunrise, meditating on what the time of year/festival might have meant to my ancestors, performing little rituals appropriate for the season and various other activities. I have often considered my efforts rather tame and effortless in comparison to some; perhaps even bordering on laziness, so the responses I received to my suggestion took me rather by surprise.
"Oh no. I couldn't do that; I'll freeze." Fire and rugs don't seem to exist in the 21st century.
"What if it's raining? I can't risk catching a cold." Apparently, colds are spread by rain, not viruses.
