Michaelmas Celebration

There is something so magical about this time of year.  I love how the trees start to change colors and the air turns crisp and cool.  I also love the different festivals and holidays that can be celebrated.  One of my favorites is Michaelmas and I tend to celebrate it my own way not following any of the rules.  But one thing we enjoy doing is making the dragon bread.  This was our dragon bread we made. I was so excited with how it turned out and the children seemed to have fun helping me decorate it.  Its a very big cinnamon roll!   I like to think about how to bring more light into our lives as the season starts to shift and we start losing the light outside.  One thing that we did besides make the dragon bread and read St. George and the Dragon is to do a service for someone.   Since the children are getting older its a fun way for us to keep enjoying this festival.
