Wednesday

Michaelmas...


Michaelmas, or the Feast of Michael and All Angels,
is celebrated on the 29th of September every year.
As it falls near the equinox, the day is associated with
the beginning of autumn and the shortening of days
link


St Michael is one of the principal angelic warriors,
protector against the dark of the night and the
Archangel who fought against Satan and his evil
angels. As Michaelmas is the time that the darker
nights and colder days begin - the edge into winter -
the celebration of Michaelmas is associated with
encouraging protection during these dark months

September 29th - or Old Michaelmas Day/October 10th
(..and May 1st) - was 'skiftedag' - ' Moving Day'
Hmmm, some had to move by night...

Michaelmas was 'a goose day' in the older days,
remember this?
