And to celebrate may some suitably aged grapes not have died in vain.

Hail Mother of the golden wheat, You of plenty and fertile womb, breathe Thy blessing
upon my heart, nourish my soul that I, too, may create the world with love.
Blessed Be.

Oh wow, thanks a lot, xia!
I was just googling what mabon was hehe

That is also very useful to better understand William Horwood's Hyddenworld series (I always meant to check and always forgot).

And a peaceful season to you sir.

My intention has always been to incorporate Wiccan and similar season/calendar based notions into my book. But I know nothing about them. I stole the calendar Xiagan pictured, but haven't incorporated it in yet.

Assume until proven otherwise that everything Wiccan was nicked from other religions/cultures/geographies/time periods.

It is the definition of organised religion by kleptomania.
