This is where I have drifted from the traditionalist to the localized form of Hellenismos. I’m very interested in learning more about ancient Hellenic festival structure and applying it to my practice, but applying it in a relevant, modern, and local context is important to me. So far the only festivals I celebrate are:
- The festival of lilies, when I give some of the abundant tiger lilies around my home as offerings, and
- The Hermaia Agoraia, an opening of the markets for the secular holidays.
I’m in no rush to add more, expecting that new ones will manifest when the time is right for them.
