Signs, small miracles and good music

After resolving to “get back to the basics” in my last post, I was determined to find my Circle Round CD.  At my house, this is no easy task as CDs and DVDs get piled up and I am the only one who puts them back in their cases.  However, in what is nothing short …

Kids’ Sabbats

My children are 1 and 4, so attention span is not a strength they currently have.  Getting into things and touching everything, however, are some of their strongest features.  So while we have been doing little celebrations for the Sabbats, they have not done rituals with me and our celebrations haven’t really been focused on …

3) Mabon Prep- Crafts

One of the easiest ways to introduce anything to young children is though arts and crafts.  So probably on Friday or maybe Saturday after we eat, I have 3 crafts planned! The first craft will be adding a menu item in addition to the craft itself.  2 Witches in a Box are holding a corn …

2) Mabon Prep- Blessings and Theme

I’ve always thought of Mabon as the Pagan Thanksgiving.  When the world was more rural, the second harvest had been completed and most of the work was done and there was much to be thankful for.  This is a theme I plan on continuing.  At the start of the meal, I will say a thank …
