2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

It's neither for me. Though, when I was wiccan and connected mostly with wiccans it was Lughnasadh. I hadn't heard it called Lammas until some time later on.

My practice has evolved so much over the last 20 some years that even though I still celebrate the Wheel of the Year, not much about any of those celebrations or even what I call them is similar.

Lughnasadh for me. Lughnasadh is still the name for August in Irish, and there are many festivities and folk traditions tied to it....

There are a few Lammas ones as well(more of an Ulster-Scot thing here stemming from the English), but they mostly include music, or drinking at horse fairs.

I'm not big on Lughnasadh/Lammas as a holiday-holiday (it's a "working" time of the year, when my garden is ripening and my critters need lots of tending).  But this could become quasi-religious for me.

Excellent! Please share how it goes.

We just had a nice meal for Lughnasadh, and I baked bread and made a fruit crumble. It was very much appreciated by my partner :)

Our celebration at my OBOD grove included the raspberry wheat beer that a member made this year. Oddly delicious.

Why does homemade or locally brewed beer seem the perfect thing for this holiday?

I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.

They're usually better, have more character than big name brews.  

Note to self: stop by Hangar 24 on the way back from apple country.

We've got a crapton of new, tiny breweries opening hereabouts.  Many are wonderfully weird.  I like my homebrew a lot, but I'm getting seriously into beer tourism lately.  ;)

We have a bunch here as well, which is nice for a relatively small metropolitan area.

The new nanos are really fun.  Making some truly funky beers.  I love a well-made NW IPA, but I'm starting to get into Brett-fermented stuff and sours.  My two new favorites are Gastropod and Outlander.  I wish the latter had better food, though.

I'm digging through old posts for info and I found this gem!  I think, and have just realized how oblivious and insensitive this is, that lughnasadh and lammas run together in my mind.  

To me this is the taste of what's to come.  It's not quite the full holiday feel for me, but it's my first glimmer of fall.  That glimmer really keeps me going through these Alabama summers.

I go with the science, generally (spring equinox, May Day, summer solstice or Day of Days, autumn equinox, Halloween, winter solstice or Night of Nights or Yule).

 
That's me as well!  Well, not the science bit, but just coincidentally those are the times of year which have always resonated with me (even when I was too young to know what Paganism was!)
