Happy Mabon!

It’s that time of year when those in the northern hemisphere start wearing jackets in the evenings and watch for the color in the leaves. Autumn!
For those in the southern hemisphere, happy Spring!
It’s a time of change, a time of regrouping, a time of settling in for the long, dark, cold winter. Set up some projects you’ve been procrastinating. Mull some cider. Watch the colors in the trees.
I think autumn is my favorite season. I didn’t really have it growing up in Miami. There were plenty of trees but they stayed green all year long. Maybe that’s why I treasure the time now. I relish the beauty all around me, and few things are more stunning than a hillside full of blazing glory in autumn leaves!
Mabon is traditionally the second harvest festival. The first is at Lughnasad, around August 1, and the last is at Samhain, around November 1. It’s the height of the harvest, when fulsome bounty abounds! Fruits, nuts, vegetables, meat – harvest it all!
It is also the autumn equinox, when days and nights are equal. It is a beginning of the return of the long, dark nights. It’s a time to give thanks for the abundance in our lives, whether that be for food, health, family, or blessings.
So break out the pumpkin bread (and pumpkin everything else!), the cider, and the butternut squash. Time for a feast!
I write historical fantasy novels, mostly set in Ireland, and a contemporary romance based on my parents’ 30-year search for true love. Don’t miss information on Celtic myth and history, as well as practical travel planning tips, and hidden places, in my travel books.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
