Pagan Holidays for April 5, 2010

 

Check out our Pagan Artist of the month Margaret Shaffer.

Ok, who’s ready for some Pagan Holidays? If you are, let’s take a look back in time and see what our Pagan Ancestors were celebrating…

Monday, April 5th

 

Moon-day

On our fabulous Moon-day, Rome will kick things off with the second day of their festival of Megalesia, which is in honor of their Mother Goddess named Cybele.

Lets not forget Fortuna, who shall make this day sacred also for her. Toss in the Nones of April and we have a full day ahead.

But hold on, don’t dare count Greece out, whom I have found through doing these love to rub stiff competition where Rome is concerned. Expect nothing less for they will be having their own festival in honor of Charites who you may have read about by the ever-so-popular name ‘The Three Grace’. Their names were: Euphrosyne–standing for joy, Thalia–standing for blooming, and Agiliaia–for radiance. Still unsure who these fabulous ladies are? Well they were also known to live with the Muses. . . inspiring artists, musicians, and poets.
