The last few letters of the Alphabet is hard to find words for. At least the letter Y had a few more for me to chose from. Today’s word is:
Year and a day
It is a modern Wicca and many Pagan traditions where a period of time must be spent studying a given degree or grade before the next one can be received. Turns out that measuring time by a year and a day is an old England tradition. In fact, in medieval English law, if a person was wounded and died with in that time period the one who wounded him could be charged with murder.
Have to admit that last part intrigued me a bit. In my mind, lots of other things could occur in those days in between, especially if the injury wasn’t major and healed up fairly quickly. Oh, well unique and interesting fact none the less. Hope all comes back tomorrow our last day of the A to Z Blogging Challenge and find out what the last word will be.
Have a great day and remember all the information for this post was found in:
The New Encyclopedia of the Occult by John Michael Greer.
This particular word was found on pages 523
