Michaelmas

September 29, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The Wheel of the Year turns to Autumn, and if you were a resident of the British Isles in the Middle Ages, you’d be celebrating Michaelmas (or the Feast Day of St. Michael and All Angels) as a quarter-day and harvest festival. Michaelmas festivities in the British Isles represented an attempt to Christianize the people’s existing religious and folk traditions, and the Pagan influences of this day’s customs live on. St. Michael himself, wielding his bright spear and destroying the forces that threaten his people, came to reflect Lugus or Lugh, and matters relating to employment, agreements, abundance, games, and monster-slaying characterize Michaelmas celebrations. Come join us as we celebrate this Christo-Pagan harvest festival, inspect our obligations, and perhaps challenge our own dragons.
