Debates and opinions of other people's reviews are not the point of these review forms so I won't even go there. To each his/her own, as I always say.
The book? Well I found it to be much the same as any other about the subject and so I would say it just depends on which authors writing style one enjoys. I have read Raymond Buckland and his wife Tara Buckland books and this authors and I find for myself that they are all pretty much the same, in content and sell. So, depending on whether I enjoy the childish type of reading or the more academic books, is which book I buy at the time.
I do feel that one of the problems with many of these types of books is that writers too often use names other than their own, therefore confusing readers as to which author they really are and trying to establish some type of mystic aura around themselves which leads the more scholarly readers finding them inadequate.
For the most part I remember little magic books when I was a child and as I grew to adulthood I told many of those same stories to my own children.
Another problem I found with these books is the offense taken by some in the witch community. Stepping on beliefs of others is inevitable and an easy thing to do I guess when it comes to myths and religions.

This is a very good book for those who need to learn more about the various Sabbats. I hope Silver will write aout some of the others as well. As always Silver does her research well and this book is no different, she offers plenty of information about the history of the Craft and the holiday itself. Is it slanted in "our direction"? Probably a bit, but that's okay, we deserve a small break.
The has seven chapters, is filled with lots of "fun stuff", great recipes, and interesting tidbits of information. she does her best to dispell misconceptions about the Craft, although I doubt that this book will be read by "those folks." It will be read by thousands of young folks and people who have open minds and are seeking information. They won't be disappointed! Silver RavenWolf is one of our strongest writers and a true advocate for women and spiritual activism. I am a friend and a fan of Silver's and I consider her contributions to this world to be of real importance. She gets people to think, to act, and to be the best that they can be!

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. For the modern practitioner, its important to have books like this to help remind us that magick isn't all about seriousness! I feel this book is legitimate and embraces innocence in life.
Silver proposes wonderful ways to celebrate Halloween in a fun, simple and magickal manner. I'm tired of huffy puffy books that are uptight and oh-so-serious. It's good to see that Silver hasn't fallen to cynicism in both her writing and her magick.
What I really enjoyed was the history on Halloween. She takes you through each age and explains how Halloween was during that time frame, proving that Halloween (though it was not known as such back in the day) is older than Christmas!
Personally, I'm relieved that this book was upbeat and fun. Some call it childish, but it's probably for the better. I'd have the living beegeezus scared outta me if someone chucked a bunch of serious and solemn rituals at me to do on what's been known as the scariest night of the year! This book has helped me see Halloween in a healthier light.

The halloween book has made it's way respectively into our public library... even a christian librarian reccomended the book. It's a wonderful tool to show people that witches are not evil hags... and it tells perfectly well how the holiday was twisted into haloween. I reccomend this one highly. For those who would call Silver Fluff... yes she writes on a level that is a little fluffy... but it gets people to open their minds about our faith... and it gets people to think about our customs and traditions in a positive light. Silver should be commended for all that she has done and I hope that the Goddess will keep inspiring her. As for the occult bookstore owner. Would you reccomend the farrar's to a christian parent concerned about what their children are getting into? I wouldn't. This is a perfect book to show them... it is written on a level that is comprehendable... and it also gives good recipes and family fun. -- Blessed Be!

Really if it's not even published why is it here? Hopefully it will not be published. Other works you have attempted to write and call 'books' are filled with such foolishness about the Craft that it is impossible for anyone to know what you as a writer are trying to establish in the literary field. It is obvious you have many names and many beliefs which have shown as contradictions to one another throughout your books. Even many of the young people are picking up on it. But some of the youth are much more aware and not as gullble as adults in the Pagan world. But I don't have to tell you that. Otherwise you wouldn't bother to publish this book "Costumes, Receipes and Spells" Is it your contention to insist that all this is what the holiday Pagans celebrate is connected with. Oh, Silver your truths are beginning to come out, don't you think? What goes round, comes round and it comes round in multiples.

Silver RavenWolf is a wonderful author. Her books are veryinformative, well written, and show knowledge of the subjects that sheis writing about. In "To Ride a Silver Broomstick" Silver explains her name. This new book is called Customs... NOT Costumes... Perhaps, more knowledge on this subject and specifically on this author is in order.
Yes, what comes around goes around the threefold rule applies to everyone, including myself.
Silver is a truly gifted author. "Halloween: Customs, Recipes, and Spells" will, I have NO doubt, be just as wonderfully informative and entertaining as the rest of her books have been.

There are real meanings for the celebration of "Halloween". Those who are looking for reality won't find it here. Try the search engines under Paganism or Wicca or Goddess Religions. You'll find what you're looking for there. This book is well let's just say "cutesy" maybe and like a lot of others on this subject. If you like the author then read her book, this one is about as good as her others. If you want something more substantial and for the more mature crowd, then try Adler, Starhawk, Leek and the rest of the legitimate witches around. You'll find them a bit more informative without the kiddy type appeal.

I bought this book on a whim (I add to my holiday collections yearly) and was pleasantly surprised not only by the accuracy of the information presented, but also by the practical ideas expressed in the book. My congratulations for dispelling more of the misinformation that surrounds this fun yet touching holiday. If you have children, this book will provide tons of useful information to fire their imaginations. If you have ever lost someone you loved to death (and who hasn't), you will find comforting ideas to help you remember and communicate with them. Blessed be!
