Blessing of the Hounds: November Tradition
Rev Julie's prayer is featured in Blessing of the Animals!
The Blessing of the Hounds, or Blessings of the Hunt, usually take place in association with the feast day of St Hubert. In France, Luxembourg, and Belium this is on or near November 3rd.
Many traditions celebrate the event at the start of hunting season or on Thanksgiving...so many events will probably begin this weekend.
There are a lot of legends out there but I enjoyed this legend of St Hubert with the tie into Jagermeister.
