Mabon is also known as the Feast of Avalon. To the Celts, Avalon is the mysterious place for the land of the dead and literally means the land of apples. Thus, this is a holiday for celebrating the bounty of the harvest and the desire for the living to be reunited with their deceased loved ones. A traditional way to honor the dead is to visit their burial site and place an apple on their marker. This represents the promise of the Great Spirits for renewed life.
