Mabon (September 20-23rd)

Mabon is known as a Welsh god. Also known to be a child of Earth Mother & god Modron. This is a time to look back and reflect months that have passed. Its also a good time to clear out clutter and recycle!

Thank you so much, Iโ€™m soaking in all of the information that I can about Mabon. Iโ€™m looking forward to decorating the house and celebrating this year. I found some wonderful things at Michaels while I was there and Iโ€™m sure I could find some other items in the grocery store and on one of my walks down the bike path.

Thanks for sharing, Marissa!!

Unfortunately with all the social distancing, no big feasts this yearโ€ฆ :fallen_leaf:

I will go camping for the New Moon before Mabon (on the 17th) so I hope to do some astronomy! Iโ€™ll have some nice wine and write a list of things Iโ€™m grateful for as Mabon is also known as โ€œWitchesโ€™ Thanksgivingโ€

@Francisco, I didnโ€™t realize that it was known as our Thanksgiving, I think I will plan a feast for my family then! I canโ€™t wait to decorate for fall in my house. I love the colors and items that can be put out for others to enjoy.

Awesome information, @marissa! :two_hearts: Iโ€™m so excited for Mabon, this is my favorite time of year! :heart_eyes: :fallen_leaf: Unfortunately, it seems that Autumn celebrations arenโ€™t as big in Poland as they are in other parts of the world (I see pumpkin spice things all over the internet, but alas! Not a single shop in Warsaw with a pumpkin spice beverage yet :sweat_smile:). So I will have to be extra creative with decorations and cooking to celebrate the Fall festivities here at home! Thank you for sharing this very helpful guide to Mabon :pray::blush:

Iโ€™ve actually made pumpkin spice syrup for coffee with these ingredients:
Pumpkin pie spice, also known as pumpkin spice, is an American spice mix commonly used as an ingredient in pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie spice is similar to the British and Commonwealth mixed spice. It is generally a blend of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and sometimes allspice. Wikipedia

I had no idea Mabon was called Witches Thanksgiving either!! Do you know any traditional dishes that used to be served?
Iโ€™ve been living in a hotel since March due to ahem, whatโ€™s going on in the world and having brothers who are high rish, but I should be living in my very own first apartment by then and what better way to celebrate than by going BIG this Mabon?? :relaxed:

Last night I made this, itโ€™s called Harvest Bowl and itโ€™s basically a roast served over quinoa with tahini sauce:

Oh, @TheTravelWitch I canโ€™t wait to try the bread recipe too! Thatโ€™s my favorite part of celebrating the Sabbats is the baking. My daughter loves to help me with that and my husband and lovely daughter also like the homemade loaves of bread with extra Love.
