A Public Service Announcement from the Paganistani Ministry of Magical Culture

This is a public service announcement from the Paganistani Ministry of Magical Culture.

In a little more than a Moon from now, pagans everywhere will be dyeing eggs to celebrate the Spring Evenday/Equinox.

If you haven't started saving onionskins for that purpose yet, now is the time to start.

(If you need to learn how to dye eggs using onionskins, and other natural dyestocks, you can do so here.)

On behalf of the Paganistani Ministry of Magical Culture, we wish you and yours a very safe and happy Wolf Moon.  

Please remember to shovel your sidewalks.

 This concludes the public service announcement from the Paganistani Ministry of Magical Culture.

We now return you to your normally-scheduled programming.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.

    My birthday comes on the tiptoes of spring, so I have enjoyed my birthday, if only for the promise of warmth and flowers, each March. Last year, for my birthday feast, I colored eggs with natural ingredients. I made a brine for three batches and added:
    turmeric and garlic (yellow)
    red cabbage and pepper corns (pink)
    asparagus and onion (green)

    You actually used asparagus to dye eggs?
    Now that's pious.
