The first day of spring, or the spring (Vernal) equinox was celebrated March 20 (due to scheduling constraints, we will be celebrating on the 21st). Alban Eiler, which means, "Light of the Earth," was the day that night and day stood equal. Crops were typically sown at this time. The equinoxes and solstices were seen, to the Celts, as a time of transition. This rare balance in nature made these days a powerful time for magic to the ancient Druids. It is a time of balance and harmony. On this occasion night and day are of equal length, but the days will increase from this day forward until the autumnal equinox. So it is a time of balance before a period of increase. Just as early seeds may be planted in your home garden at this time, so may magical and spiritual seeds be planted for harvest later in the year.
Come share the evening with discussion of the significance of Alban Eiler and enjoy a feast of ceremonial foods, poetry and music. Dress as you feel celebrates the season...have fun with it! (Druids should wear their ceremonial whites).
In order to have the correct amount of food, RSVPs are requested.
The cost of the evening is $20.00. Payments can be made through PayPal or at the door. If cost is an issue, please contact Dr. Ayleen (408)[masked], [masked] or Kyna[masked], [masked]
