Merry Mabon!

 

Today is the Autumn Equinox. Which means the day and night are equal lengths and from here on, the days grow shorter and the weather turns colder.... unless you live in Oklahoma where it’s still 90s every day where I live. 

It’s a harvest festival, one of corn, apples, and wheat. 

Back before the luxury we have now of supermarkets, when people have to grow their own food, this was the time all their hard work from spring and summer paid off. Where they could harvest their food and get ready for the brutal winter ahead. 

It’s a time of thanksgiving and plenty. 

Even if you don’t celebrate Mabon, it doesn’t hurt to stop and take a moment to be grateful for everything you have and just how easy it is for us today to get food!
