To celebrate Mabon this year I did a short, simple, non-ADF-style ritual. My sisters and I went to an apple orchard to get apples and cider. That evening, when night had fallen, I went outside and knelt by the maple tree that guards my front door. I offered cornmeal, an apple cut crosswise, and the first of the cider to the earth and the land spirits in thanks for the year’s harvest. I poured out cider for the gods and the ancestors, and I circled the tree three times each direction with cinnamon before pouring a libation and sharing a final drink with the Kindreds.
