November 12th: GOG's Feast of Manannan at the Jersey Shore
12 attended GOG's Feast of Manannan at the Jersey Shore. We made offerings of beer, grain, oatmeal, whiskey, along with returning our grove's sacred Well water, into the ocean to Manannan Mac Lir, the grove's Patron and Gatekeeper, to thank him for gatekeeping at our rituals and keeping an eye on us. Our omen contained all the parts of a desiccated pumpkin that made a whole pumpkin and an uneaten cob of corn: autumn is almost over, all the pieces are there, and we have sustenance for the winter.
