Yet unto these would I add another two, which two festivals shall take place on the
two equinoxes of the year, first in the spring and then the autumn; for on the day
of the first equinox shall you celebrate the Spring Festival of Lovers, but in the
second equinox shall you celebrate the Festival of Harvest and Thanksgiving.
Refer to:7th Endowment 4:3-26
Summary: In the 7th Endowment, Heavenly Mother appoints the celebration of four
festivals which coincide with the solstices and equinoxes of each year. The Spring
Festival of Lovers is recognized on the vernal equinox, to be a celebration of the
shaping and forming of true love between couples. The festival is also a time to
commemorate the love which Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother have for one another,
to celebrate them as a true example worthy of emulation (7:4:22-23).
Thus in the Spring Festival of Lovers shall you celebrate the shaping and forming
of true love between you and another; comporting yourself with all manner of grace
and consideration for the one you love; proving yourself most dedicated in your imitation
of such a love as does exist between your Heavenly Mother and Heavenly Father.
Let then the woman and the man celebrate themselves and the love which they have
made; comporting themselves with grace and tenderness; extolling to one another the
virtues of the other and the reason for their love, establishing through romance
a great eternal bond.
Being each most true devoted in the learning of grace, both in speech and manner,
extending to one another through grace the true love which is born first of spirit
filled with passions; seeking only to fulfill the needs of the one they love, even
above their own self.
7th Endowment 4:13-15
Thus on the day of the vernal equinox shall both the woman and the man celebrate
the Festival of Lovers, taking upon themselves the examples of God the Mother and
the Father; learning through imitation the power of grace and love in the mingling
of their lives.
For in the Spring Festival of Lovers do you commemorate the love which the Heavenly
Mother and Heavenly Father bear for each other; to hold them up before your eyes
as the only true example worthy of emulation.
