Current News

I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

It's Distaff's Day

It's Distaff's Day (Jan 7) and time to get back to work after the holidays. (According to Old English tradition, that is.) From Chambers Book of Days, we have this explanation:

As the first free day after the twelve by which Christmas was formerly celebrated, the 7th of January was a notable one among our ancestors. They jocularly called it St. Distaff's Dag, or Rock Dag, because by women the rock or distaff was then resumed, or proposed to be so....  


I'm sorry to do this to you, but this post has been moved to my new site, Pagan Calendar, hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com and can be found in it's entirety here: Distaff Day
