Water of Notre Dame
Water of Notre Dame
The old Pagan festival of Nincnevin, later Martinmas Eve, honored the Goddess Diana and her entourage. At Martinmas, the Germans celebrate this time by feasting on wild geese and then using the breast bone of the last goose to predict the weather for the coming months. It is believed that if the breast bone be fair and clear when the flesh has been eaten off it, the weather will be cold and full of hard frosts. However, if the breast bone is dark then the winter will be full of rain, snow, and sleet but warmer overall.
During the French Revolution, this day was celebrated with a parade through the streets of Paris. A young woman was chosen to represent the Goddess, and led the processional to the cathedral of Notre Dame, considered a center of learning, whereupon she was presented with a crown of oak leaves. It was hoped that the festivities would make the people aware of the importance of learning.
Well here I go again, apologizing for running late. But this time I believe I have good news and you will like why I running late, lol! We are currently in the process of opening up our own store. Yes, you hear right, the WOTC is going to have its’ own online store. After several weeks of going through agreements and terms with providers, we have found a fabulous one. We are going to be able to give all of our FOLLOWERS super discounted prices! Then, of course, to the general public, we will have coupons and other promotions for them. That once again, our FOLLOWERS can use with their already low prices! We are all super excited about this. Opening our own store has been a dream for a while and now it is coming true. Thank the Goddess!
The only bad thing about the deal is, I am the only graphic designer in the bunch. So I get to sit at the computers, get the eyestrain, backaches, and all those other nasty little things that happen to you when you are at the computer to long. But I don’t mind it a bit. You know why? Because I love all of you! This is going to be some incredible that we can offer you. So I don’t mind a bit, if I look like the hunchback of Notre Dame time this is over with, lol! (I hope not though :s)
We will be offering about anything you could want. Athames, staffs, cauldrons, herbs, hard to find herbs, Books of Shadows and much more. You are just going to have to check it out when we open it. And, of course, there will be a huge announcement when we do. So for the next week or two, please have some patience with me. Please!!! We are in the process of making one of our dreams come true and you are going to benefit from it. Remember though, to get the discounts and then use the coupons and promotions on top of you discount, you have to be a current FOLLOWER of the WOTC. So take a moment to press the follow button.
Anyway, I am going to run for now. I just wanted to apologize and share the good news with you. I hope you have a very blessed Thursday, my friends!
