Nyx Knocked.. A Poem by Angel Rose Nox

Nyx Knocked was written and inspired by my love of the Divine Feminine and with respects to the children's' song "This Old man" whose melody and rhythm played in my head while the goddess danced. This poem is a story of ebb and flow. It tells of the journey from maiden to crone and the cycle of life from student to teacher.

Check Scam Shows General Lack Of Respect in Nation Today

It's all how you look at this...

I just received a cashiers check scam.  Its certified and drawn on Farmers Bank however, its fraud.  the check was written for more than my fee ( I marry people) and they wanted the difference back in cash. 

Rainy Wedding Day

DJ Simms's picture

Rain symbolizes blessings, cleansing, unity, and a new day. In some cultures it is also a symbol of fertility. Due to these positive things, a rainy wedding day is very often considered good.

 

Honeymoon Tradition

DJ Simms's picture

Why do people go on honeymoons?  After the wedding bells have rung, the cake has been eaten, the vows have been made and the guests have gone, what is left to do? Honeymoon of course.

Carrying the bride over the threshold

DJ Simms's picture
The custom of the groom carrying the bride over the threshold is a very old one. As rumor would have it, traditional European weddings were followed by bride kidnappings.  So it was customary for the groom to whisk away with his bride and to hold her close so that no one could kidnap her.

Wedding Ring Origin

DJ Simms's picture
The French believed the blood vein on the left hand ring finger was the only vein directly to the heart that's why we wear the wedding ring on our left hand.

The Ring Warming Tradition

DJ Simms's picture
Having a ring warming in your wedding is a wonderful way to involve all of your guests in your wedding ceremony. A ring warming is when each of your guests gets the opportunity to hold your wedding bands and bless it with a prayer for a long and healthy marriage.  This loving tradition dates back to the continent of Africa in the country of Egypt.
 

History of the Bouquet

DJ Simms's picture

It is traditional for the bride to throw her bouquet at the reception and for all single women in attendance to try to catching it. Tradition states that the lucky woman who catches the bouquet is said to be the next in line to get married.
 

What is Passover?

Rev. Pam's picture

The Holiday of Passover is an eight-day festival celebrated in the early spring. The holiday commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt.  By following the rituals of Passover, the follower trys to relive and experience the true freedom that our ancestors gained.

Everyday is Earth Day

Hi there! Just stopping by to wish everyone a Happy Earth Day! 

Since the weather has been very cooperative we've been in celebration mode all week. Today is a great day to bring awareness to our children about why it's so important to take care, protect & help Mother Earth as much as possible. There are many ways that you and your children can celebrate our Earth. These are a few of the ways that we celebrated Mother Earth.  

Let Them Eat Cake

DJ Simms's picture
A wedding cake is often the centerpiece of a wedding and is usually placed where guests can admire it. This carefully planned masterpiece is a tradition going back to Medieval times.  According to weddingvenueillinois.com, Some might say it originated from the Scottish cake toss where cake would be thrown on the couple during their honeymoon departure to ensure prosperity and good fortune, and never to go hungry.   Back then a stack of bread buns was used instead of a cake.
