In the autumn, Michaelmas (pronounced Mick-el-mas) helps us celebrate the harvest. Michaelmas, September 27th, is an ancient festival that inspires inner courage during a time when the outer world is growing darker. Our Faculty holds a puppet show for the school community, which is followed by a potluck. The central image in the puppet show is Michael who embodies courage, initiative and steadfastness to overcoming a dragon. Through this we kindle our own inner strength, as the season transitions from the outer warmth of summer to the coolness of fall. This festival takes place near the autumnal equinox when the days grow short. We turn inwards, towards ourselves and our community for inner warmth.
