Samhain is one my favorite times of year. I love almost everything about autumn; however, something that I don’t love is Samhain’s close association with horror. I volunteered to help at the kindergarten activity day. I wore a red and white shirt because it was clean and fit. One of the kindergarten students told me […]
Occasionally, things go according to plan. Other times it’s just a struggle to keep going. I look forward to this time of year for months. Once July arrives and the temperature rises, I am ready for October. The summer drought and heat wave finally broke last week. As of right now, it feels like autumn on […]
Mabon is known as the Witches’ Thanksgiving. It is the time when we thank the God and Goddess for the harvest. It also marks the turning of the wheel to autumn. From this point forward, the days will become shorter and the nights will become longer. At this time of year, I love to celebrate […]
The past few weeks have been difficult for me. At some point, I want to write about death, depression and fertility issues from a Wiccan perspective, but not today. Today, I want to spread a little happiness and share with you a free Mabon word search printable. Mabon is one of my favorite Sabbats. Even without the events […]
I cannot believe that Lughnasadh is only a week away. I somehow managed to once again underestimate the amount of work required by the garden and lost track of time. Now, I am in full Lughnasadh planning mode. To help you and your little ones celebrate the upcoming Sabbat, I wanted to share a free […]
Book: Parenting Pagan Tots by Janet Callahan Rating: 4 stars Being a parent is challenging. I believe that being a Pagan parent is even more challenging. We do not have the same resources available as other mainstream religions. When I go to the local bookstore, there are shelves and shelves of parenting books from the […]
As Pagans, we never lack a reason to celebrate. With eight Sabbats and thirteen Esbats, we have a lot of occasions to remember. At one point, I bought a fancy planner from a craft store. (Of course, I used a 40% off coupon.) However since I forgot to use it most of the time, it wasn’t very […]
One of my goals for this blog is to provide more resources for Pagan parents. When I google homeschool or homeschooling, the majority of the search results are based around other religions. Honestly, I feel left out sometimes. So, I am trying to be proactive and create resources. For Lammas or Lughnasadh, I created this free maze […]
We are only about a week past Litha, but the Lammas harvest season is already in full force here on the homestead. We haven’t had a lot of spare time, but we did acquire a new book recently. Little ones, homeschooling and related things have been on my mind lately. Unfortunately, I haven’t found many Pagan themed children’s books. So when I saw Rupert’s Tales: The Nature of Elements by Kyrja, I immediately decided to buy it.
After finding Wicca, I struggled to find ways to celebrate the Sabbats. Even though I grew up in a Christian household, holidays were not big events. I wanted to change that tradition, but I wasn’t sure what to do. Over the years, I have tried a lot of different things. Some were great, and some flopped. I want to share with you my top five ideas for celebrating Litha.
