Decorate for Autumn--with pumpkins, gourds, fall garlands. Bring out the boxes with all the great autumn decorations.
Visit the Farmer's Market for fresh pumpkins, especially all those unusual ones that grow into odd shapes, strange colors and weird growths.
Set up a beautiful Autumn altar for Mabon.
Plan the Mabon ritual; outdoors if the weather cooperates. Includes the firepit and the outdoor altar. Excitement!
Bake autumn goodies such as pumpkin bread and apple cake.
Time to break out the autumn sweaters and sweatshirts.
Write an autumn poem or short story.
Harvest all the herbs, some for drying, some for pressing.
Get a copy of Ellen Dugan's book Autumnal Equinox.
Say good-bye to Summer with reverence and thankfulness.
