Happy Fall!

Autumn is the Season where the sun begins to wane and the shadows grow longer. Our Ancestors are honored and goblins come out to play!

Time to wear costumes, build altars, decorate wreaths and carve pumpkins. Stay warm with hot foods, sweaters and socks. Incorporate warming herbs into your cooking or drink chai tea.

After you are done with the pumpkin as a display-eat it!
