UPDATED and Improved with even greater Karma Cleaning Power!
Ma'at's Temple welcomes all to join and celebrate the Longest Night as the Year Wheel re-turns towards the Sun!
The Yule Log was lit (see photos) and the Fire tended all night to welcome the Sun's re-birth along with Ice and Snow...delaying our Celebration. Fear Not! I hope everyone agrees that a party between the 25th and New Year is a great time for sharing the Spirit of the Holidays.
The flames of the Yule Log will illuminate our hearts while sharing stories of the Oak & Holly King, of Inanna and her decent / return, the re-birth of Osiris and many others.
In addition, we will pass the Holly Crown of Light from the Oldest (Crone) to the Youngest (Maiden).
There will be a chance to release what needs gettin' gone into the Flames of Forgiveness.
... and lastly; rumor has it a certain Jolly Ol' Elf will show up to help with the Ritual, now that his work is finished for the Year!
TO SHARE: Bring a donation for the less fortunate (food, toys, ect) to be donated to Operation Holiday. There will be a 'White Elephant' gift exchange trade off, so break out that flying monkey ashtray you never use and get rid of it! (make sure it's under wraps).
FEASTING! (Bring some favorite) - cups, plates and wares will be on hand, but if you have a favorite Wassel cup, who are we to argue?
SONG! (You already know at least one of 'em)
Bring yur Drums and musical thing-ama-bobs (we have a lot of 'bonker' stuff).
An after -event Sauna will be available for sweating out those toxins - bring a suit and towel.
As before, if you have special needs or concerns, let us know. A sitter is available for a $5.00 contribution. There will be a warm place to enjoy the Feast and German Wassle will be offered along with teas and fruit beverages. Dress your best but make sure it's weather appropriate. Blessed Be!
