Mabon postponed

With my sister being discharged from hospital and going to my mom's place in other city on Thursday (nothing left for the doctors to do, it's way better for her to spend this last phase with family), and my hubby being sick since last Friday, life got incredibly busy and tiresome, and though I did decorated our altar for Mabon, we couldn't celebrate it yet. Simply too tired to anything at night. Lucas is asking for it, and I hate postponing, specially when it's something important for us like this, but, priorities, priorities...
Anyway, on Friday, after being sure Rodrigo was well enough to be left alone for a couple of hours, I managed going with Lucas early in the morning to collect dried leaves on the streets for the cornucopy, and we got a bunch of beautiful ones. He came with the idea of using wrapping paper for the cornucopy itself, and we bought a beautiful sheet of paper decorated with butterflies and brown leaves, everything chosen by him, of course. We filled it with leaves, coins, an apple and a pine, to represent the changing season and prosperity. I still want to make a ritual, even being so late, but it's the intention that matters, right? But it has to be a looong ritual, that's Lucas' request. He really enjoys taking part of sabbaths, and the most things he can do along the celebration, the better. I'll try to make it tonight, let's see!
One last thing: I'm curious about you guys, how it was for those who also celebrate the Wheel of the Year? And for those who don't, how was Easter? I'd love to hear about it... Here Lucas got chocolat eggs, from us, friends and relatives... now our fridge looks like a chocolat warehouse! :)

I think what you collected sounds wonderful. A cornacopa is perfect for Mabon. As you know we did Ostara here, so we dyed eggs with my grandson and had a traditional easter egg hunt on Sunday combining both Ostara and Easter, Other than that we are doing a bit of paranormal investigating, which I will be posting about later today on my blog.
