Harvest Home, Harvest Moon
There was three kings into the east,
Three kings both great and high,
And they hae sworn a solemn oath
John Barleycorn should die.
- Robert Burns, 1782
This year the Autumnal Equinox and the Harvest Moon are back to back, a two for one special if you will! So for those of you who will be celebrating, have a happy and joyous Equinox!
*And in case you were wondering, nothing can compel me to refer to this holiday by the incorrect and utterly modern label of Mabon
