Calendar of the Moon
Altar: The Kronia celebrates the Golden Age when Kronos and Rhea ruled, when there was no
order, so nothing is done ordinarily this day. The altar is laid with whatever cloths those present
may bring, and set with whatever things they may think appropriate to the celebration of a
mythical utopian anarchy.
Offerings: Do nothing in its order today. Invite in those not of the House and let them order the
activities. The newest novice should replace the House Elder for the afternoon. Order is restored
Daily Meal: Let those not of the house bring potluck. No one cooks today, and all fend for
(With random shouting throughout)
Long ago, before there was Law,
Kronos inherited the throne
From his mother, Gaea, who recognizes only
The laws of nature, and his father Uranus,
Who was capricious as the wind and the sky.
For hundreds of years he ruled their way,
Until he realized the value of Rules
And became their strongest servant.
When his son Zeus overthrew him,
And with his thrice-blessed wife Hera
Ascended the throne, he kept the Rules.
Yet today we remember that time,
Like unto the childhood of the world,
Where there were no rules,
Nor were any needed. Go now,
And spend one day without them,
That you may appreciate them the more in the end.
(All exit in a rush, snatching things from the altar, and have a drumming and dancing circle.)
