03/20/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Mean Earrach
(Pronounced Mun Eric)

“As the Earth prepares for Spring,
Wise women gather in circles to await the promise of new life
And to sing praises for the green earth.
And so do we, here now,
This year, and every year,

Welcome Imbolc.”


 - Jill Yarnall

Dear Friends and  Schoolmates,

  Today is the first day of Spring! While this is in and of itself cause for celebration for all of us, some of us observe it more carefully than others. For those of you just joining us (or who just really, really haven't been paying attention), I'll tell you that   Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH is a Druid Priestess. We here like to celebrate and educate (or at least take notice) of all our varied celebrations and observances like the Big Happy Family that we have become.

HOMEWORK:

  From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 03/18/08:

 
For some of us, this is the time Tre-fuilnguid Tre-eochair manifests
 
whether he is a foreteller of Christianity, or the ancient god and patron of Vannin (Isle of Mann), Mannanan mac Lir, coming through the fogs and mists of March bearing green and telling of the season of fertility to come, is debatable.. but I've surely seen him!
 
Mean Earrach (Spring Equinox), Full Worm Moon, and Easter all run together this year (2008).
 
On Saturday here there will be a feast, and two of our members formally pledging to this path; if the three realms accept them, they will wear the copper bracelet, and study as the High Ones ordain.
 
There will be breads baked with intention Friday night, and salmon of wisdom, flesh and fowl, and fresh greens served on Saturday.  
 
May your spring omens be full of positive growth; may you gather with friends and family, and feast according to your own traditions; may you ever have food enough to share freely, and may the coming season show you the way to your heart's desire.
Domi

   Thanks for helping our understanding, Domi!
