In the process of putting together things for tommorow night, and have become curious as to what others do to celebrate..
As I have recently cleaned my house and will Cleanse it tonight. I would then like to pay thanks tomorrow for the good that is left. I will also put out some fall items tomorrow as well. Such as my punkin spice candles.. yumm.. =) And sorta prepare the way for Samhain.
So.. What are your Mabon Rituals???

Well my other half has to work nights so will probably have solo blessing...plus mopping the floors :lol: ...I do plan on putting a roast in the oven with fall veggies
I have always been fascinated with the "alternative religions" and have been reading here in hopes of learning more, but funny the fall veggies thing...I had an urge to make a stew with fall tubers yesterday, so I did and ate the leftovers for lunch today after having a massive house cleaning while making the stew!

Heh - for Mabon, I'm usually in the middle of a Faire run. Been that way for the past four years. I'm not even sure what the public ritual group I'm part of did for a craft project....
But I do know for Samhain, we're going to be "putting by" supplies for the long winter. In modern terms, we're going to be cooking up a bunch of different soups and stews, splitting them up amongst ourselves, and taking them home and freezing them to enjoy on some random cold winter days.
So that's our "Fall veggie thing" - except some of us use meat, too. :D

Well, it's not wuite for Mabon, but a wonderful coincidence of events - a friend's 18th birthday, another friend got the house she wanted and said "felt like home", the 7th anniversary of another friend's widowhood, and another friend just got laid off, but I'm working on hiring her. And it's dance tonight - always a good time.
So - a bit of a mixed bag, but overall a good reason for celebration - Jody's making the cake and I think I'll need to pick up some sparkling cider!

Well, I usually try to do something to honor the day, but to be honest with you, the last thing I feel like doing is cooking fall vegetables. Yesterday it was 102 degrees where I live! I don't truly get fall until about the third week in October, so I do some cleaning and do a little wine and bread ceremony to honor the equinox. I use Samhain and Thanksgiving as my big harvest festivals.

I spent this Mabon in bed nursing a severe head cold.... :(
