Today at the Hellenic Temple of Apollon, Zeus, and Pan, we celebrated the Panaia, Pan's birthday.
After a pre-procession meditation, we opened with hymns from In Praise of Olympus. Hiereus Timotheos did a divination with the Astragaloi that we discussed during the theoxenia.
For theoxenia, we offered and shared lamb with spinach over mini-rotelle pasta (which looked amazingly like pine cones) and various pastries for dessert. Our libations were moonshine and non-alcoholic apple cider.
After, we did the preliminary Dendraia decorations with a miniature tree for Pan along with a drum circle.
Next up will be Kheimonia on December 17. Until then, may the blessings of the Gods be with you!
