A tidbit about Mabon (paraphrased from various sources):
September 23 (in 2014). The second of the fall holidays. Colors are brown, orange, gold, and red. Like Lammas it's also a harvest festival. The fall equinox celebrates the balance between dark and light just before the days get shorter and the nights get longer.

A tidbit about Nana:
Nana is one of the 13 fairies that I made up once upon a time (ha ha, no pun intended...ish) when I was a composing a (as of yet and probably perpetually) unfinished story about Sleeping Beauty. There's one for every month, plus one extra. They have all sorts of alliances and suchlike and are at war, and are elemental, and all have weird names that are vaguely associated with their month names, function, or holidays therein.
Nana is the fairy of September. She has one of the weirder names that doesn't seem to relate to her month as clearly as some of the others. "Nana" is actually Japanese for the number 7, which is a reference to *Sept*ember being the 7th month in earlier versions of the calendar. She is the youngest fairy, is basically neutral, and looks up to and spends a lot of time with Sanguine (October).
