Building Family Traditions

Thursday, September 25, 2008
If this is what you are seeking to do, then you have already what is the first step. You found this blog. OK, all joking aside. There are a few other things that you can do. And I figured the best way to tell you is to explain my own Family's tradition.

I am an avid fan of food and as such food and eating is the center of much of my tradition. We also have a grapevine wreath and a family altar that we decorate to honor the Sabbats and the changing seasons.

I try to do at least one holiday appropriate activity for each Sabbat with my youngest, Lassair. Here some examples. For Yule we sing carols, for Ostara we paint Ostara Eggs. Keep tuned in here and check out the archives, lower down on the right, for more ideas.

We hold ritual for the Full Moons together as a family and the Sabbats as well. We have started Lassair on bedtime prayers and we watch the stars and the changing of the seasons. We have built a strong system of Pagan Ethics and we teach them to the children as well.

These are just some ideas and things that we do. In fact our tradition, since Lassair is so young, is just beginning to take a solid form. Over the following years I will chronicle the growth of this tradition. So again I encourage you to subscribe and stay tuned for more info. And if you have any traditions that your Family engages in, please feel free to comment below.

Blessed Be!
