Michaelmas, Part Two

We made St. Michael's Day Bannock with a recipe from The Catholic Home. (A more traditional recipe can be found here.)

Served with fresh, cider from the orchard we visited!

We also decorated the Michaelmas Candle. My original plan was to use an idea fomr All Year Round and do a dragon design to represent St. Michael's casting the Devil out of Heaven, but since I wanted my older son to be involved as much as possible in the project, we switched to something simpler. The little guy chose the shapes and colors and helped me cut them out and press them on the candle.

Our design features a ladybug, turtle, several stars, hearts, a flower, and a butterfly!


  1. What a lovely feast day! Thanks for posting the photos.

  2. What a wonderful tradition for your family!

    I just came in through the Catholic Mother's blogroll. I hope you don't mind if I visit for a while ;)
