The Hyssop Box

Families in my town celebrate harvest season with a Hyssop Box. If you visited, you'd find one in every house. Some people use handcrafted wooden boxes with ornate decorations. Others use the drawer of a side table. Regardless of what a Hyssop Box looks like, the ritual remains the same. Ask a question. Give a gift. If your offer is accepted, Mr. Hyssop will give you an answer. I would be happy to show you how it works on the traditional date, the evening of the autumnal equinox.
