My all time favorite thing to do before October 31st is carving pumpkins. And not just pumpkins, but gourds and apples! I save and wash all the seeds. Then I bake up about half of them - and pass out to friends and family, before I can eat them all - and use the rest in seasonal spells (especially love spells and healing spells), incense, and oils. Post a reply and i'll send you one of my favorite spells!
