Weeds & Mabon...

Posted on March 14th, 2010

How about a weed sharing get together and mabon this Saturday 20th?

3pm for weeds
5pm for pizza and soup

Here is some information about Mabon from the festivals section of our web site ....

The days are getting shorter and the nights longer, as they approach the balance point. Autumn has begun. The season of full dams, gumboots and leeches, and mowing whenever you can.

Mabon is the Autumn Equinox, the Harvest Festival. It is a time of racing to finish the harvest before the winter, a season of hard work and not enough time to do it. Mabon is a silly festival, a way of keeping your spirits up for the home run, markng the end of the long workdays, and the beginning of the season of long nights, of dreaming and looking inwards. Mabon was the first sabbat we ever celebrated, with the infamous war of the sexes at the Fig Tree. Wonderous as the story is for telling, it’s an impossible act to follow!

Mabon is also a festival of thanksgiving, where we take stock of the bounty the year has provided, so as not to take our good fortune for granted.

I am working on Saturday and the times are a bit fuzzy - so I'll see you when I get there. helen
