Seasons of the Witch
( Some ancient and some not so much!)
Live each Season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. ~Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

Light A Candle Today!
In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

Today is:
A Hard Day's Night premiered
Bahamas Independence Day
Clerihew Day
Day of Hel (Anglo-Saxon)
Day of Holde (Norse)
Day of Knut the Reaper (Frisian)
Day of Skadi (Scottish/Scandinvian)
Dia Del Bibliotecario (Day of the Librarian; Chile)
Feast of Holda/Hela/Skadi (Anglo-Saxon Northern Europe Goddesses of the Underworld) is honored annually with prayers, the lighting of black candles, and offerings of rose petals. A centuries-old festival is held in Douai, France. Wickerwork giants are paraded through the streets of the city to drive away evil-natured spirits and demons.
