It's one of the sabbats I've never really celebrated, I always tend to forget it

Mabon is a bit easier to remember as the 3 of us have birthday's just after but I don't know how we'll celebrate it, it might get forgotten though as Tegan turns 2 and we'll be planning for that (bad pagan *slaps wrist*).

But I really don't know what to do or where to start!

I am a Heathen and I did celebrate Lughnasadh with feasting and reading from the Mabinogion. I don't have any children yet but festivals should be more fun when I do.

We celebrated it by baking a homemade pie and spending time together..

I'll always kind of think my was sort of like a "thank you!" from the gods.

You can believe Lughnasadh will be a holiday held dear to me from now on.

It's easier for me I imagine as we live in a farming community and she can get a better idea of the importance of the harvest. But usually we go to a farmer's market or will go to a farm where you can pick your own berries or apples when it gets to be the right time. And then we come home and make something with the things we picked be it a pie or apple crisp or whatever else I can think of. And we go for a walk on the nature trail at the park down the street and try to spot changes in the environment around us. I don't do that much otherwise with Roxy really because I too am not sure how to approach it in a way that interests her, at four she's still very off the wall and has a hard time focusing for very long on things. Maybe I should look up some mythology and see if I can find a tale/myth that lines up with the spirit of the sabbats and read that to her as well.
