Pagan Pride 2008!

Posted in Inspirational Things, Pagan Pride, Wiccan Things tagged at 11:13 am by Babs

My favorite time of year is the approach of Autumn.  It is by far my favorite season and with all of the color of New England as a backdrop… all pagans gather to celebrate Pagan Pride Day as well as the coming of the Autumnal Equinox.  For Eastern Massachusetts we celebrate at Harold Parker State Forest in North Andover, Massachusetts. 

For many years, my friends and I gather together to celebrate our pride, attend workshops, visit vendor booths, stock up on magickal supplies and meet up with other pagan friends.  This is a lots to do in one afternoon but we make the most of it; we tailgate!  Gaia, Glinda and I all cook and pack up for picnicing our favorite recipes to share.  Just as our experiences grow each year at Pride Day, so do our menus! 

Highlights for Pride 2008 include an “Herbs Gone Wild” workshop with the Celtic Cricket.  Walking through nature we discovered magickal properties of common herbs found growing this time of year.  Listening to our speaker we frantically write down properties, uses and methods of preparation for each herb while enjoying his candor.

Glinda and I purchased our official wands; hers of Rowan and mine of Witch Hazel woods.  We both seemed to be on a shopping spree since we both purchased a print of Katie Lennon’s… Gaia was networking and is now the Internet PR Rep for the Pagan Pride Project!
