Although many view the harvest season as a celebration of life, it's also a celebration of death. The bounty you gather from your garden provides nourishment for you, family and friends. But it's also the death of those plants and vegetables which have been harvested from that garden and the soil is dying. It's a time of thanks and also a time of balance. Thus Mabon, is a celebration of the cycle of life.

Autumn is the start of the season of gratitude...the cooler weather, the harvest, a true time of thanks! One way to celebrate your gratitude is to create a gratitude garland. String a ribbon up near a focal point in your home, and scatter pens, ribbon, and stamps on a table. Have everyone who visits create a tag (or a few) that states what each is thankful for, creating a beautiful garland of gratitude. Leave it hanging throughout the entire season!
