The Sabbat of Mabon

Mabon is celebrated on September 21. It is a festival that designates the beginning of Fall, when the day and night are of equal length and light and dark are balanced.  It marks the descent of the Goddess into the underworld. Mabon is a time of giving thanks for the blessings we have in our lives. We celebrate Mabon with foods that honor the earth and harvest -- breads and grains, autumn veggies like squash and onions, fruits, and wine.

Associated with Mabon are acorns, corn, frankincense, oak, wheat, the colors brown and orange and the crystals amethyst and topaz.  It is also known as Alban Elfer, Harcest, Second Harvest, and Wine Harvest.
