What Translux Celebrates
Translux, being midway the half daylight and longest daylight time of the year make this the year's morning, full of brightness, energy and young life. It is during this time that we nurture young minds and rejuvenate older ones with discovering the wonders of our world, and nurture their bodies with active engagement with the soil, plants, and other creatures we share this world with.
We create floral jewelry, such as anklets, bracelets and crowns; We embrace the dirt by making and playing in puddles of mud, finding clay and sculpting with it, or making sand structures along the beach; Leaves, sticks, stones, and cones become pieces of land art by making them into patterns or structures on the ground and hung from branches. Themes often revolve around hatching eggs, flowers, pollinators (particularly flutterbugs/butterflies), and frogs, with participants wearing self made flutterbug wings, playing pollinating and frog games, and telling the stories of how caterpillars and tadpoles metamorphosize into their adult forms. There is also kite making and flying, and egg dying and hunts.
