It’s the weekend already/finally! I’m pretty excited about this weekend for a couple reasons I’ll detail in a comment. I hope you are coming into Friday with similar happy anticipation.

Passing Time: Beltane

Guest Post, · Categories: Passing Time Rituals Series

meat_lord suggested I include the video for this song since it features a May Pole. I couldn’t say no, even though I always hated this song, have never taken enough drugs to appreciate the video (despite working at a Renaissance Festival for 19 years), and only realized after posting it here (and watching it again) that the awkward arm movement he repeatedly makes throughout the course of the song is, I think, meant to be the letter “S.”

Welcome to the third article in our rituals series. I went with the modern pagan wheel of the year calendar because several of us are familiar with it and it evenly breaks up the twelve months into manageable chunks of time. There will a mix of spiritual and secular practices and observations for each holiday–I can’t promise ahead of time if any will be weighted more one way or the other, but I’ll do my best to include something for everyone. I’ll post these the Wednesday before the holiday date. Thank you to the contributors! You are invaluable. Read full post
