Hang dried ears of corn around your home to show appreciation of the harvest season. Do
meditations and chanting as you process food to store away for winter.

Decorate with colorful autumn leaves in a basket and display the fruits of the harvest such as
corn, gourds, nuts, grapes and apples in a cornucopia. You can also decorate with wildflowers,
acorns, nuts, berries, cocoons and anything that represents the harvest.

Plan a ritual feast using seasonal and symbolic fruits and vegetables. Serve bread, squash, corn,
apples, cider and wine. You can make homemade wine or cordial, gather and dry herbs, plants,
seeds and seed pods. Make grapevine wreaths using dried bitter-sweet herb for protection. Use
ribbons of gold and yellow to bring in the energy of the Sun. Decorate with sprigs of dried yarrow
or cinnamon sticks.

Make protection charms of hazelnuts strung on red thread. Make a witch's broom by tying dried
corn husks or herbs such as broom, cedar, fennel, lavender, peppermint or rosemary sprigs
around a strong straight branch found on the ground during one of your walks. Make Apple
Dollies, collect fallen leaves and make a centerpiece for you home. Save the leaves to burn in the
Yule fire.

This is also the time for replacing your old broom with a new one. Broom corn is ripe now and
besom making is traditional and magickal at this time.

Traditionally Sabbat festivals begin at sun set on the eve of the Holiday. You can use your daytime
hours at this Holiday Eve to prepare baskets for harvesting the next day.

Bake a pumpkin pie, from scratch if possible, and it will bring in the fragrance of the Holiday
Season.
