Before I became Wiccan I thought it was so weird to celebrate the harvest at a time when it had already long passed (Thanksgiving, in the snow, what?) so when I learned about the Lughnasadh - Mabon - Samhain trio it made SO MUCH more sense.
I just love this scene! It makes my imagination go crazy with ideas...AND I just love gazing at it...imagining how warm and wonderful it is inside...how cool, crisp and perfectly Autumn-ish out on the porch! Can't you just FEEL this scene? Ahhhh!
