Mabon is the second harvest festival in the wheel of the year, an opportunity to say thanks once more for the bountiful harvest. The resources of our Earth are precious and finite. In this spirit, this date has been declared Car Free Day in many places in the world. Car Free Day events highlight the many problems caused by our dependence on the private automobile, including air pollution, global warming, stress, and safety issues. In honor of the harvest of the blessings of Mother Earth that sustain us in the year ahead, plan today to go about your life without the use of your vehicle. Consider taking public transportation, riding your bike, or walking as you tend to your day's schedule. Encourage the promotion of this as a community-wide event in your city as others have done around the world. Celebrate the Earth by giving back to her.
