Today doesn’t need to be all bells and whistles. Well, if you want to do that, that’s your prerogative. Giving thanks with a simple phrase, or even just those two words will suffice.
It’s all about intention.
Decorating your house is a fairly new concept here in the UK. Witch types have been known to decorate their home for Samhain, but ordinary folks not so much. But nowadays it’s a lot more common. But still isn’t a necessity.
Sweets/candy are a must if you have children of your own, or live in a neighbourhood where children are likely to come knocking.
Dressing up yourself is kind of cool, adding a touch of fun to what might be a busy evening.
Or maybe Samhain/Halloween isn’t your thing. In that case enjoy your evening relaxing, doing something you love.
