So today we are celebrating Mabon, the second of the three harvests we celebrate in our tradition. Mabon is the fruit and vegetable harvest as Lughnasadh is the grain harvest and Samhain is the harvest of souls or meat. This year we are celebrating with a feast as we always do. Bug busied herself most of the afternoon making a Mabon cornucopia out of construction paper, pipe cleaners, pom poms and foam shapes. Willowtree helped me in the kitchen.
This years menu
Stuffed Acorn Squash: Squash is a perfect autumn harvest veggie. In the stuffing there are apples, walnuts, cranberries all great Mabon symbols
Corn on the cob: A bountiful harvest veggie in our area
Waldorf salad: Apples, Grapes and Walnuts again all great Mabon symbols
Rosemary olive oil heavy bread: Rosemary is a Mabon herb
Rosemary Sage custard: Rosemary and Sage are both Mabon herbs plus they come from my own garden
Sour cream apple pie: Apples are the fruit of the Goddess they hold a place of high honor in our tradition and at this time of year.
We all sat around the table and gave praise and thanks to the Goddess and God for all of the blessings in our lives. Later tonight Willowtree and I will join our Coven and celebrate Mabon and the Harvest Moon in ritual. May you all be able to see the bounty in your lives
Goddess Bless you this Mabon
