Ritual Passages – The Vernal Equinox

No sooner is St Patrick’s Day behind us than the Vernal Equinox — Ostara — is upon us, actually on March 20th this year.

Today we’ll be taking the theme of St Patrick’s Day (and March 17 is also the date of the Roman festival of Liberalia, a feast celebrating boys reaching manhood) and broadening it out with a more general Celtic theme and the hint of approaching Spring.

The Vernal Equinox is World Storytelling Day, a celebration of oral storytelling, which also reminds those of us in the virtual world of Second Life that Fantasy Faire is approaching, running this year from April 20–30, and once again this year Radio Riel will be running Fantasy Faire Radio during the course of the event — see fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com for details.
