as many of you might know, today the northern hemisphere celebrates the Autumnal Equinox!
Today, night and day are almost equal. As its name already implies, the Autumnal Equinox is the beginning of Autumn. By Pagan tradition it stands for the second harvest as well as thanksgiving. In Wiccan tradition the Autumnal Equinox is also called Mabon as a reference to Mabon ap Modron, a character from Welsh mythology. 1
I decided to celebrate this special annual occasion quietly while engaging in some journaling.
|Cookies (digestives with milk chocolate), tea (see picture below for details), |
my journal and two of my favorite Lamy fountain pens
|One of my favorite teas for Autumn and Winter: |
Roasted Almond by TeaGeschwendner.
It just arrived in the mail today. This tea is also available in the US by the way.
|Autumnal Equinox journal decor - this is one of the leafs I pressed last year.|
Are you celebrating the Autumnal Equinox this year? Do have special plans for Autumn in general? And what about Autumn inspired crafting projects? Let me know in the comments below :)
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful, warm, and cozy Autumnal Equinox!
Sending many blessings your way :)
