Mabon is known under many different names including, the Second harvest, Wine festival, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic Winter Finding starts at this time and carries on until 15th of October (Winter’s Night) which is seen as the Nordic New Year. It is seen as important to wear your finest clothes and celebrate in style, with lavish food in a lavish setting. It is the time that families and communities come together ready for Samhain. It is time to tie up any lose ends before settling down for some rest and relaxation. It is the symbol of the second harvest, the mysteries, and the balance of light and dark.
