Preparing myself for the Anthesteria

The Anthesteria is starting in less than a week. It is interesting to me in that it will be the first time in a few years that I will be actively celebrating certain portions of it.

When my daughter was younger, I did not celebrate it in as large a way as I hope to this year because I want her to be a more active participant and UNDERSTAND more about why things are done. She is now five, and this is definitely a time to be able to start explaining the “why” of things, not just the “how”.

She understands that mommy gives coffee to the Gods every day. Now is the time to teach her that there are additional festivals…..
