It's almost the time of the year again when we celebrate Mabon. Now you might be wondering what is Mabon?

Mabon is one of the eight sabbats that are celebrated by witches and Pagan folks. Now of course not everybody celebrates the sabbats, but I personally love celebrating them since they help me with preparing for a certain season or time of the year. They also make me appreciate all the seasons more (even winter, I don't really like winter because of the cold haha!).
So how were the sabbaths created?
The sabbaths that we celebrate today are a combination based on many ancient Greek, Roman, Celtic and Germanic traditions. There are greater and lesser sabbats. This degisnation is based on their origin and the astronomical event that they celebrate.
The greater sabbats are: Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh/Lammas and Samhain. They celebrate the different stages of harvesting: resting, planting, sprouting and harvesting.
The lesser sabbats are: Yule, Ostara, Litha and Mabon. They celebrate the changing of the seasons and they are my personal favorites. I love seeing the seasons change and I love to celebrate the seasons. This is probably why I like the lesser sabbats so much. I currently don't have my own garden to plant crops in but maybe one day when I get my own garden I'll start to appreciate the greater sabbats more.
What do we celebrate during Mabon?
During Mabon we celebrate the 2nd harvest and the coming of winter. We give thanks for the nature and mother earth for the good harvest and pray that our crops last through winter. During Mabon day and night are equal. It's the beginning of the fall equinox. Nowadays we don't have to worry about our crops not lasting through winter anymore, but Mabon is still a perfect time to prepare your home and yourself for winter!
How do we celebrate Mabon?
One way to celebrate Mabon is by making a Mabon altar.
You can add fruits and vegetables like apples, pomegranates, corn, grapes etc. Nuts are also associated with Mabon. Pinecones and acorns are also perfect for a Mabon altar. For colors on your altar you have to think of fall colors like dark reds, orange, brown, cream etc. I personally love lighting orange candles on my Mabon Altar.
Another way to celebrate Mabon is by eating and cooking with in season fruits and vegetables since it's an harvest festival.
Especially apples are associated with Mabon so baking an apple pie for example is perfect!
You can also start a gratitude jar or journal on Mabon. Think back of all the things that you're grateful about and write them down. Gratitude journals are a great way to put you in a positive mind set. I believe in the law of attraction so I believe that if you're in a positive grateful mindset that you'll attract more positive things.
You can also celebrate Mabon by taking a walk in nature and to watch the summer slowly changing into fall. Other ways to celebrate Mabon in the nature is by having a picnic or bonfire!

I wanted to make a way longer blog post but couldn't finish it in time due to my health. I still hope that this blogpost is helpful and inspiring! Have a blessed Mabon everybody!
