We all know the rituals depicted in fairy tales, myths and legends where a group of old hags sacrifice a young virgin, while worshiping the devil.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Rituals are found in every religion and culture. They are also known as ceremony and an important part of tradition. Even holidays are full of rituals. Examples are songs and foods shared or the giving of gifts at specific times. Most importantly, rituals are and were designed to honour the spirits and ask for their cooperation and blessings. Modern day Druid rituals usually include offerings of mead, wine, juice, seeds, nuts, (home made) bread, etc.
