Honour the Goddess Pomona on Apple Day

Oct 21st, 2018 | By | Category: Articles, Books

October 21 is National Apple Day in England. In the Pagan world of Ancient Rome the festival of Pomona, Goddess of the Apple Orchards, was also about this time of year. In the Moon Books community book Every Day Magic, I wrote this entry for today:

Apple Day: This annual celebration of apples and orchards is a modern festival, although the Pagan festival Pomonia, for the Roman orchard Goddess Pomona, was soon after on November 1, marking the end of the apple harvest. It was celebrated with games that might have included apple bobbing. Eat an apple today – or bake an apple pie – in honour of Pomona.

Every Day Magic – A Pagan Book of Days has contributions from about 50 Moon Books’ writers and offers something to do every day of the year, including spells, rituals, meditations, Pagan prayers, divinations, poems to read, recipes  and craft projects. You can order copies via the Moon Books website www.moon-books.net or buy the paperback at The Atlantis Bookshop, 49A Museum St, London WC1A 1LY.
