Mabon's Fall

In Celtic folklore, it is told that the name Mabon is thought to come from the Welsh God Mabon, who was the son of the Earth Mother Goddess and a God of light himself. In British folklore, Mabon is associated with Herne the Hunter and the start of deer-hunting season.

Mabon is all about gratitude for what has been reaped this year, with an eye to the hardships of winter. It also brings a recognition of a mental and physical adjustment needed for the darker, longer nights and harder conditions ahead.
