While many people spend today celebrating St. Patrick by getting drunk on green beer, here's an alternative option from the Roman calendar: Liberalia. Today is sacred to Liber, the Roman god of passion, wild nature, fertility, and wine. On this day, women sold cakes on small altars in honor of freedom. To tap into this energy, bake bread or make a cake today. Think about what exactly freedom and liberty mean to you. Decide what action you can take to promote liberty and tolerance in your life and in the lives of those around you. Ruminate on what the concept of freedom means around the world, and how often people struggle to attain it. Once you have thought enough about these concepts, clean up your altar, rearrange it, and take care to rededicate it. Eat the bread or cake you created to symbolize the embodiment of your commitment to freedom and liberty, and to your growing understanding of the responsibility associated with those privileges.
