Autumn Equinox - an Apology

I'd like to say sorry to the Beaker Folk we've dragged out of bed to celebrate the Autumn Equinox on the 20th, 21st and now today. We were wrong each time. I blame Autumn Frenzy caused by falling leaves and too much pumpkin for tea.

We've now augured  the auguries, sounded out the sages and read the runes. And Googled it. Autumn Equinox is definitely tomorrow.


  1. I trust, therefore, that the church will celebrate appropriately. And no, I do not mean Harvest Festival.

  2. I don't believe your prevarication. I think that this was a deliberate attempt to annoy the community members who like to have a lay in and not rise before Gin O Clock.
