Mabon: Fall Equinox
Happy Fall Equinox to my friends in the Northern Hemisphere! Time for some apple cider and a walk in the woods.
Mabon (Maybone or Mah-boon) is named for the Welsh God often viewed as the counterpart to Persephone, and symbolizes a time of thanksgiving for the second harvest. (Lughnasadh being first, and Halloween aka Samhain being third).
This holiday often includes recipes using grapes, gourds, squashes, apples, nuts, and berries. Generational quilt patterns, cross stitch samplers of sacred symbols, and handmade grapevine wreaths feature prominently in pagan homes at this time.
