On October 31, 1998, the St. Petersburg Times published an article entitled, "Witches Rejoice, Reflect on Halloween." Robin Spaulding, a Wiccan priestess who lives in northeast St. Petersburg, says that "on Samhain, that is the time you are most likely to communicate with the spirits that have passed on." Susan Granby of the Compass Coven in St. Petersburg suggests that Samhain is both a celebration of life and a time to say farwell to the spirits of those who have died this year.
