How will you celebrate?

Mabon 2019 will begin on Saturday, September 21 and ends on Sunday, September 29.

It is a time to reap what you sow, a time to give thanks to Mother Earth for the bounty she provides and a time to rest after bringing in the crops. It is also the second holiday on the Wheel of the Year, which includes other harvest festivals such as Lammas and Samhain.” (Holiday Calendar) For me, I’ve decorated around the house and will eat a nice meal by myself and give my personal thanks to Mother Earth for her bounty.

In my news feeds, I see overwhelming hate and despair. I see killings of innocent men, woman and children. I see racism getting worse and not better. I see slander beyond what should ever be acceptable. I see people hating others for their religious or spiritual beliefs. So yesterday on Facebook
