For the last ten years* or so my wife and I have hosted what we fondly call “Pagan Easter Breakfast.” Pagan Easter Breakfast (or PEB) is exactly what it sounds like, it’s breakfast on Easter by and for Pagans.

Druid Thoughts: Druidry and Poetry

Rozentals_Nave

I’ll start with the assumption that the Druid path is not necessarily familiar to you.
