has asked about Mabon suggestions. Here's a few from my altar so to speak.
I either bake or purchase a "harvest" type of bread or cake. Apple/date from my local grocery store is an old favorite. Now those on a gluten-free diet can bake or purchase from a bakery some apples. Sweet and yummy, and often are not made with flour, though I have seen some recipes that do roll the apples in a little bit of flour so if you purchase, be careful. That is usually my offering on the altar. Hazelnuts are also sometimes placed on the altar if I don't do baked apples. Hazelnuts were often used by the Druids before a trance was done. It helped them cross the veil so they could see the future, commune with the Gods, etc. Anyhow, it was commonly believed that Hazelnuts brought on visions, so I use those before a working sometimes. I like to do this and then record what I can remember in a journal. It's a good ritual working. If we do this, then as a fun even, I like to bob for apples. Yeah, you know, the big barrel of water and floating apples. Just like we are kids again. I also love to cook so I'll do a pork roast, a Turkey, etc. Apples, pears, nuts, cobblers make good desserts or some spice muffins make some good take homes for the guests. Those of us on a diet, fruit platters are great with some yogurt. Just some ideas.
Now for coven issues: The coven has really not done anything in a long time. With my family issues (Uncle's situation)and the schedule of another member, it really hasn't been feasible. I would still like us to get together somehow for Rituals. I have seen and been part of On-line rituals which are nice. I miss being there, but hey, when you miles away from your group, sometimes this works well. those local can still get together with me for Ritual (Mabon date to be announced very soon), but also I'm open to start posting classes again here or via email.
Please comment to this post for how you want class if you want...Thanks!!
