Celebrate Mabon with Apples

Do All the Apple Things for Mabon

Happy Mabon! It’s the Autumnal Equinox – a time of mystery and beauty and all the fall things.

Now’s the time when we can relax, enjoy the fruits of our labor through the year, and when we embrace the lengthening nights, as well as the darkness that comes with it.

It’s also when apples – the symbol of Mabon – are in their prime, and can be used for just about anything to celebrate. Whether it be incense, food, drink, or altar decor, the apple – as well as the pentagram at its core – is incredibly representative of witches.

So let’s use them! Here are some easy and delightful ways to use that ginormous basket of apples you definitely didn’t get carried away with at the market.
