Burn old clothing to banish bad luck today

The Incan Festival of the Sun, originally an elaborate Peruvian celebration of the power and beauty of the all-seeing deity, still takes place on this date in some of Mexico's more remote areas.  This Mexican version of the festival usually includes a family picnic and the ancient custom of burning one's old clothing to banish bad luck. 


On a darker note, June 16 is Silver Chalice Day and so every year on this date Wiccan friends and coven members gather together in a circle to rejoice and share a traditional silver chalice of wine consecrated in the names of the Goddess and Her consort, the Horned God. 



Regardless, enjoy the day in light or dark, or both.
