the moveable feasts of spring

March 29, 2019

spring has sprung and with its return, daylight grows longer and much of what was dormant during the long months of winter begins to take new form and reawaken. in many cultures, the vernal equinox heralds the dawn of a new year, with the day itself representing perfect balance and having equal parts daylight and darkness. the holidays associated with spring are commonly known as the moveable feasts. traditionally celebrated on the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday that fall after the full moon in march, they relate more to the cycles of the moon than the exactness of time. this is no accident, since the most ancient origins of these celebrations are connected to the worship of the goddess, a place where the moon holds very high court.

like mother earth herself, the goddess is a gatherer, she magnetizes resources, nutrients, beauty, life, fertility, and love, and then she freely shares it with others. which is why in many indigenous societies, it is the women who are responsible not solely for the harvest, but for the preparation of the food, the invitation of the family and community, and the inspiration behind the offering. the hearth, and all that surrounds it, is a gateway to the home within, a form of high art which we love to celebrate year round.

we at abc recognize the spirit and beauty of the goddess not only in every person, but also in every moment and every thing. whether you celebrate easter, passover, or the end of winter, we’ve got the perfect setting for your moveable feast. as you begin your process of spring cleaning and prepare to reconnect and gather, enjoy our spring curation, glittered with the magic of ancient wisdom and honoring all traditions.
