For my area, I'm a few hours early, but I just wanted to wish everyone a happy Fall Equinox, Mabon, Mean Foghamar, Alban Elued, or what ever else you may celebrate.

:hi:

Bright and dark blessings at this time of equal day and night to all who follow an earth-based spiritual path.

Happy Mabon. May you choose well in what you must give to the dark, and may you face the remaining light with hope.

There's a small real ale and fancy cider festival in town this weekend. Think I can wrangle it as a celebration of the harvest? We did go foraging for rosehips and blackberries today, as well as bringing home a load of crab-apples and wild purple sage, and there's a bumper crop of elderberries near the beer festival spot we've yet to decimate.

That sounds like fun! I'm looking for cranberries - please tell me they have cranberries here in the UK, perhaps at Sainsbury's... I promised my husband cranberry-orange muffins. It isn't a proper thanksgiving/harvest without cranberries. ;)

Happy Mabon!

And Yeah! for once I'm not the person starting this thread! =)

Thank you!

I've seen fresh cranberries in punnets around Crimbo time so we do get them, but I'm not sure if they'll be available for thanksgiving. When is thanksgiving held?

Oh! Try these guys if you have difficulty

No wait, scratch that. They are a corporate site. Damn, let me try again.

Ah!

Frozen rather than fresh, but perhaps better than nowt?

Lingonberries and cranberries are essentially the same thing (cranberries are bigger). In case lingonberries are more readily available.

I meant our Pagan thanksgiving - Mabon. :)

Unfortunately, I didn't find cranberries today. We'll have to settle for blueberry muffins to celebrate the harvest. ^.^

I consider popping a Strongbow at my pub of choice legitimate celebration, so yes, that counts!
