Podcast 41 – Spring Lore Spectacular!


This episode is all about the various springtime lore we received for our recent contest. It’s lots of bunnies, eggs, and the occasional swat on the behind in this show! Plus we have our contest winners announced.

Almost all the lore was listener submitted, but we do have a few links to share:

1. We received some great lore from Peter M, who runs a stellar blog on New England folklore. Check it out!
2. You should also check out folklore submitter Jen’s blog, Rue & Hyssop, which is delightful!
3. If you want to know more about gardening and astrology, we did several posts on the topic: Blog Posts 18, 19, & 20.
4. We mentioned two books: Old Wives’ Lore for Gardeners by Maureen & Brigit Boland, and Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart
5. In case you can’t get enough of Cory, he was also on the March episode of Inciting a Brewhaha
6. You should definitely also listen to the 2012 episode of Between the Earth and Stars by Oraia Helene. It’s amazing!

  1. Just been catching up on the last couple of episodes. I’ve missed listening to you guys. Another great episode 🙂

  2. i’m WAY behind but here are a couple other traditions for you: in many parts of the southwest and in mexico people crack confetti filled eggs over other people’s heads on/around easter. my husband’s pennsylvania german grandmother used to dye eggs with just onion skins during lent. this was likely a holdover from the days before commercial dyes were readily available. finally, our family has done bridget celebrations for the last few years to honor the coming of spring. we eat LOTS of dairy and always leave a bit of butter and bread for her to “bless” as she passes through on candlemas eve. we developed this tradition because we have a wee bridget (by daughter) in our house!

  3. Just listened to this podcast for the first time and I’m definitely going to keep coming back! Funny, insightful and informative – congrats and keep up the good work!

  4. Catching up on podcasts – loved this one as I do all your episodes.

    When Cory spoke of practicing Lent even though he is a Pagan, it reminded me of an article at Waverly Fitzgerald’s School of the Seasons site in which she argues the case for a Pagan Lent (though you have to read about halfway down to get to the better arguments, in my opinion). Here’s the link in case you’re curious:
