Mabon was special this year because the harvest moon (the nearest full moon to Autumn Equinox) was on Friday 13th.
As darkness began to descent it was time to get cosy in the back garden and light all the pumpkins.
For me there’s always something nostalgic about straw, pumpkins, candlelight and fire.
My favourite time of the year has arrived again!
Mabon or Autumn Equinox, the brief time where the hours of light and dark match up equally in balance with one another before the onset of the darker half of the year taking over. Darker days, longer nights, low-lying sunsets with a magical cool breeze, the harvest is gone and the trees are shedding beautiful crisp leaves as though they are crying for the death of the Sun God.
