Mortals are well acquainted with some of the traditions of this night. Schoolteachers throughout the U.S. lecture on how common villagers made precautions against evil spirits with pumpkins, plates of food, and vigilance. As a result, human children and [[childlings]] alike have a chance to dress up in spooky costumes and gorge on candy until they puke. Such is the way of mortals. The true stories of Samhain have been twisted to commercialize the event, and tamed for the “mother-approved” version of one of the greatest nights of the year. Despite this, even Unseelie commoners mix a little Halloween decorations into their Samhain proceedings, largely to maintain a facade of normalcy, and to mock the holiday itself.

At midnight, the bonfires are lit, and loyal Unseelie and corrupt Seelie alike compete by confessing their greatest misdoings of the year. Lying is an option, but it is traditional for a corrupt noble of [[House Gwydion]] to observe the ceremonies. Members of [[House Eiluned]] rarely participate at all. It is not uncommon for less-eloquent fae to choose champions to tell their stories for them. Many aspiring cliques will choose a skilled storyteller to join their clique for the next year to witness their accomplishments.
