Solstice Celebration

  • Jun 15, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hello and Merry Meet

We are a cross-tradition gathering of Pagan families with children who meet monthly to celebrate the Esbats and Sabbats; to share food and music, traditions and knowledge, crafts and dancing. We are eclectic Wicca, Druid, Dianic, British Traditionalists, and are open to and looking for more varieties. We seek to share and learn from each other while providing support in a fun and nurturing environment.

Please join us in our Litha / Summer Solstice ritual. We'll share songs, do crafts, play, and enjoy the longest day of the year. Please bring whatever sacred tools you would like to recharge.

What to bring: A potluck dish to share. Please consider bringing a suggested donation of 5 - 10 dollars per person and/or 10 to 20 dollars per family.

Blessed Be,
Taffy

    As some of you know, the slide on our swing set broke on Saturday. So, I found another one on Craig's list. It's very cool but, we need help tearing it down where it is now and then building it back up here in our yard. I talked him into really lowering the price but, check out this link - http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/bab/3873866916.html. Isn't it nice? Your kids are going to love playing on it! We want to do it this Saturday. Please help!

    Taffy my lil one is having a tantrum filled day... I dont want to interrupt the circle. I think we will raincheck today :( Have a wonderful Blessed Day.

      Understood Denise :-) You do what you feel is best for you and your family. Please know that we parents understand difficult times and can commiserate. This group is not just about the kids, it's about we parents, too. We are here to support each other & to share ideas that might be found helpful. BTW, is your 3 year old close to the 4 year mark? Everyone talks about the terrible 2s but, hardly anyone talks about the Fearsome Fours, lol! But, like all of us, every child is different. So, please think of this group as much for you as for her.

      Thank you Taffy. She just turned 3 actually but we have struggled with emotional outbursts since she was about 18 months. We got a bit of a break and thought we were in the clear but then about 4 months ago they started back again. But I truly hope we will able to celebrate with you soon.

    I can do Lughnasadh July 27th. I hope this will work with the rest of you :-) I'm taking an intensive class and have to attend in person the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month so doing a circle and class in one weekend is difficult for me and my family.

    Lots of good energy and lots of good conversation ! Blessed be !

    June 15, 2013

  • Kevin B.

    We're probably going to be arriving around 4:00 or a bit later Taffy. There's a previous commitment earlier in the afternoon that will overlap a bit...

    okay.Glad mainstream food is okay that makes it a little easier for me.I always thought if someone had food allergies or restrictions they brought their own food. My sister is gluten free and even brings her own food to the families house.

    June 13, 2013

  • Jennifer C.

    possibly unable to make it after reading the comments.

    June 12, 2013

    • Taffy D.

      You are too important to me and this circle. Please reconsider.

      June 12, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    Please feel free to bring whatever you wish for pot luck. If you can make it vegan / gluten-free, cool. If not, cool.

    As my kids don't eat a huge variety of stuff, as much as I wished they did, I'll be putting out a try of cubed cheese with crackers. I want to make certain they eat, too.

    I'll also put out some brown rice & lentils with fried tofu as I'll finally have others (I presume the vegans) who love it, too. No one in house will touch it, lol!

    June 12, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    For pot-luck it's been requested that we do vegan and gluten-free and to not have any high fructose corn syrup nor artificial dyes.

    June 9, 2013

    • Jennifer C.

      really for kids or goats. That is just to restricted. I doubt my kids will even eat.

      June 12, 2013

    • Taffy D.

      I think it's cool to bring whatever you want. Many don't have any restrictions on their diets and would love to eat anything that is brought. I know when I was vegan, I had no problem with people eating a steak in front of me.

  • Elijah C.

    will not be attending after all. second time in a row, sorry. got some tickets to a science academy event i could normally never afford to take my daughter to. hope to make a meet up some day,
    cheers

  • Taffy D.

    I would like to delegate the craft the month. I have an idea of what I'd like to do but, it's just not working. Besides, this is a community thing not a Taffy thing ;-) Who would like to do the craft this time? Or, what ideas do you have?

    I posted this in our Yahoo group but, thought it was a good idea to post it here too as some of you are only not in our yahoo group. Please consider joining yahoo groups so you can join in on all the discussions. It's private and meet up is public.

    June 10, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    Please join our yahoo group for more conversations!! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/south_bay_pagan_kids/

    June 10, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    What to bring for potluck - Let's try the sun signs again? Unless you all have better ideas!

    Air - side dish / veggies
    Fire - dessert / fruit
    Water - drinks
    Earth - main dish / protein

    We might be a little late that day. Lots of stuff going on in June...

    Im bringing my pasta salad again !

    1 · June 1, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    We do have a lot of vegetarians and vegans but, not everyone is so don't worry if you can't think of anything. Cheese & Crackers, veggie tray, fruit (maybe salad), think simple things kids can grab on the fly. And, don't forget nuts!! No one has indicated a nut or gluten allergy, yay! Please though, no artificial dyes or high fructose corn syrup. But, if you accidentally bring something with those ingredients, the world will not come crashing down ;-)

    June 1, 2013

  • Elijah C.

    any suggestions for potluck items.

    June 1, 2013

  • Shelley

    I am vegan, the hubby and kid are lacto vegetarians

  • Taffy D.

    I added the questions that are asked when someone RSVPs. As I already had set this up as a place holder, I had to edit it rather than delete it and add a new event. If you all edit your answer, maybe you can see the questions. It's how many adults / children, food requests/sensitivies, and that fact that we have 2 loud but very friendly dogs.

    May 31, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    I've decided to forgo my earlier commitment since everyone else can make this date, June 15th, rather than the date I had planned (which was the 22nd). So, yes, let's have Litha/Solstice at my house on the 15th at 3pm!

    May 30, 2013

  • Elijah C.

    I'm sorry I couldn't make this event. I had to work and then the fair down the street from my house captured my kids attention.
    would love to go to the litha event but will have to see. feel free to friend me on facebook. and hats off for trying to organize people.

  • Shelley

    I still need an address and should i bring
    anything ?

    May 23, 2013

    • Taffy D.

      Yes please! A pot-luck dinner to share. so far a few people are vegan & vegetarian.

      May 23, 2013

    • Taffy D.

      I sent you the address through the email link in meet up.

      May 23, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    Oh no!! The 15th is South Bay Circles (all people version, not specifically kids version) is on the 15th :-( Let's concentrate on this Saturday and worry about next month later.

    May 23, 2013

  • Taffy D.

    June 15th won!!

    May 23, 2013

  • Shelley

    June 15 would work for us. So does that
    mean this months get together is cancelled ?
    Also Taffy, how old are your kids ?

    May 23, 2013

    • Taffy D.

      This Saturday is still on! My daughter is 3 (4 on June 23) and my son is 6 1/2. I guess I better finish my profile, lol!

      May 23, 2013

  • Denise F.

    We could do the 15th. Or I can try to move our Saturday plans to Sunday and free up Sat for the Circle.

    May 23, 2013

  • Denise F.

    We'd love to attend but Sunday would work better as we have plans for Sat already

    May 23, 2013

    • Taffy D.

      Saturday is my daughter's birthday and my husband's company picnic, so that wouldn't work. The other date would be June 15th at 3.
