The Roman festival of Epulum Jovis
Rome celebrated a festival honoring Feronia on this day as well.
Egyptians honor Isis again today.
the Runic half month of Nyd begins.
Today they would hold a Festival of Epulum Jovis which was a formal banquet in Capitola where the members of the Senate and Magistrates of Rome would attend. The banquet was in honor of Jupiter, Juno, & Minerva.
Now while they were doing that, there was another festival going on that honored Feronia. She just happens to be the Goddess of flowers and of the pleasures of youth.
Now if you lived in Rome and wanted to drop off an offering of flowers and the seasons first fruits for Feronia, you would simple trot on over the the foot of Mount Soracte in Etruria because that’s where it was.
Now remember Isis started her journey yesterday searching for the body of her brother/husband Osiris. Well, today, we give Isis the chance to mourn and grieve for him.
Today begins the Runic half month of Nyd. That means, we need to get it together and do our Winter preparations.
Well folks, that’s it for today. I was too lazy to grab links for further reading because I have a kid that was up all night sick. So, with that being said…my lazy ol’ butt leaves with all of the above—wishing you a fabulous Friday the 13th!
