Traditional Mead is a celebration of the Autumn Equinox, which equally divides day and night. The full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox is called the Harvest Moon. Farmers would harvest their crops by this moonlight.
The Harvest Moon is a time for thanksgiving, evaluation and meditation. The Druids called this celebration Mea’n Fo’mhair, and honored The Green Man “God of the Forest,” by offering libations of wines and herbs to the trees.
