Month Number 3 begins my Gentle Readers. March, the start of the year according to older calendars was a month of change and transition. Poor Julius Caesar had a bad day on the 15th, the infamous “Ides of March”. Some calendars used to also hint that the last three days of the month actually belonged to April. Perhaps Mars, who the month is named for, thought they were his in the spoils of some war.
This is the month of Ostara for earth based faiths. Time to glorify the Lady and welcome in Spring with colored eggs, symbols of rabbits, and much revelry. Personally, I am looking forward to Cadbury creme eggs. My favorite Easter candy.
MMMMM, creme eggs. *drooling*
March 1st is also National Pig Day in the United States. A couple of sisters founded this day in 1972 to celebrate “man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.” I don’t know about that, but I do know that
Thanks Jayne Rockmill
I am not saying that we shouldn’t celebrate the Pig. I am just going to do it with bacon on my cheeseburger.
Also, I think this will be the last Official Spell a Day post. I have looked ahead and there is a lot of repetition in themes. There are only so many times I want to comment on cutting ties or prosperity/wealth spells. So while I may still refer to the Spell a Day, I am going to start calling these On this day posts and expand upon other events of the day. Births, deaths, events, traditions. All sorts of fun stuff. Until next time my Gentle Readers.
