Today is the day of the vernal equinox (the Spring Equinox!) and it has snowed pretty much all day. I haven’t done much for celebration, since it’s less fun when I’m alone, but I woke and lit all the candles in the house until the dawn came. Now, I’m sitting here on my third glass of sweet mead (a mandatory drink on almost any holiday), and I cooked myself a delicious vegetable pot pie. Most of the things other people do (by this, I mean other pagans) I tend to like to wait until Easter to celebrate, like dying eggs, eating chocolates, and cooking massive dinners. Easter is still one of my favourite holidays, and it just doesn’t feel right to dye eggs before Easter.
Anyhow, inebriated ramble aside, today’s picture is from the Smithers Secondary School Art Gala at the library! A bunch of students in the photography class got together and took and framed some photos, and have been selling them this month through a silent auction, so I went to check it out. As a photographer myself, there was little there to interest me, but the fundraising goes back into the school and the library and the community, and it was fun to see people come out for it.
Have a happy Spring!
