Mabon is celebrated around the 21st of September, on Autumn equinox, the counterpart to Ostara, the Spring Equinox. Night and day are again of equal length, the sun’s power is waning and the nights grow longer.
This is the second harvest of the year, the fruit harvest, following Lammas, the grain harvest of August. Mabon is a time of celebration and thanksgiving, and a time of rest and reflection.
The colours of this print reflect the abundance of fruit and veg. The apple is the symbol of the fruit harvest. Traditional celebrations at this time of year include feasting with friends, walking in the countryside, and planting bulbs for the Spring to come.
I hope you have a joyful day however you chose to spend it!
