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.

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, along with more information on Distaff Day here: St Distaff Day
