Housatonic Valley Waldorf School hosted its annual Michaelmas on Friday, September 27. This year marked the school’s 20th anniversary of celebrating its play.
According to the Housatonic Valley Waldorf School, the Michaelmas Festival is done every September to honor St Michael, an iron sword-bearing mythical dragon-slayer. The school explains that Michael’s legend symbolizes autumn resurgence and striving to overcome inner dragons like doubt, greed, laziness, and fears for the future.
