This is from my old blog, the Geekie Hellenist. Enjoy!

These are the titles for Demeter. I really enjoy honoring Demeter, no matter what time of the year. Of course I don’t really give her libations during the Winter. As she’s morning her daughter not being with her and most likely wouldn’t want offerings or expect it. But I’m adding these to the page and I hope that they help you better understand this goddess.
