The awareness of the benefits of having time in one’s life for gratitude, appreciation and positive reflection have become increasingly apparent. The hope of the founders of Gratitude Day is that by taking time, one day a year, to reflect on the many amazing things we have in our lives, it would positively impact our well-being and make us happier, more contented people. The biggest way for you to celebrate World Gratitude Day? Recognize that you don’t have to wait another 364 days to celebrate it again.
It's known as the pagan Thanksgiving. Mabon marks the Autumn Equinox, when day and night are equal. A new season is upon us and we're moving into less light. The cycle of the natural world is moving towards completion, the Sun's power is waning and from now on the nights grow longer and the days are are shorter and cooler. We celebrate this season with seasonal foods like gourds, pumpkins, grapes and apples.
