Mabon is the 2nd of the 3 Harvest Festivals & is celebrated during the Autumn Equinox. Also known as 'The Witch's Thanksgiving,' it is a time to feast upon the last of the Harvest season, as we prepare for the cold of Winter. It is a time to give thanks for the fruits of earth & ground our energy as we recharge our 'spiritual batteries' & grow closer to the darkness & thinning veil that separates our world & the spirit world. The Autumn Equinox occurs around March 21st for the Southern Hemisphere & September 21st- 23rd for the Northern Hemisphere. Now that the warmth is behind us, the cold lies ahead & we must take a moment to have gratitude for the abundance of crops that have provided us with food through the summer, which will now do the same throughout the Winter. Throw a feast to celebrate the success, prosperity, love & warmth that has found way to your hearth & home.
