  • Druid Santa Ritual & Gift Exchange
    Hail to the Joy-Bringer, the Gift-Giver, the Toy-Maker! Santa is one of America's most recognizable - perhaps the most powerful in His season - deities in our pantheon. Once a year, we gather to give cookies and milk in His honor, sing fun winter songs, and share warm memories. This is a family-friendly indoor ritual event that combines an ADF-style druid ritual with a modified version of the so-called "white elephant" gift exchange. Bring your Santa hat and some cookies, and gather with us near the fireplace as we call to that Jolly Old Elf. If you would like to participate in the gift exchange, please bring a wrapped present of $15-20 value. There is no obligation to participate in this part of our event. ... Dinner tonight: We have switched to a directed pot luck-style dinner for our craft nights. Please comment with any food restrictions you have and the type of food you plan to bring (i.e. main course, side dish, dessert, salad, bread, etc).

Meetings end when all are ready to leave. Tonight's discussion is expected to be on: Ritual Review - AD Rev. Kirk reminds us that there is no ritual so perfect that it can't be improved upon and no ritual so awful that some lesson can't be learned from it. Tonight we will discuss the previous week's ritual. How did it go? What insights or experiences would folks like to share about it? How might we improve for the next ritual? Book Review - ADF encourages all druids to read, read, read. This is the best way to understand and build a foundation for our understandings and experiences. Tonight we will relate which books we are each working on, whether they are on the Dedicant's reading list or not. We will discuss our progress since the last book review meeting, as well as challenges the book has presented us. These discussions will assist those who are pursuing the Dedicant's Path to complete their reports and, for the rest of us, it will encourage us to continue to learn.

We are currently unable to provide childcare, so if your child is unable or uninterested in being part of the service, it may be better to leave them with a sitter for the sake of your own experience as well as those around you. As a public event, we are not worried about your beliefs or path so long as you come to our fire with good intentions. Hospitality is our priority - a good guest gets a good host with a fervent hope that your divine Being or Beings bless you through the methods of our practice. While attendance is FREE and open to everyone, rituals do cost money to perform. All donations are gratefully accepted and are tax deductible through the charter from our parent organization, Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF) [a 501(c)3 charitable religious org]. All attendees are welcome to participate in the ritual as much or as little as they like; incense, oil and other items are provided to use for offerings should you forget to bring your own. However, we encourage you to bring something of your own to offer: the Deities and Ancestors, in general, appreciate the sweet smells of incense as well as alcohol and silver objects. The nature spirits love edible seeds and shiny baubles (beads, buttons, semi-precious stones, etc). All of our Kindred appreciate handmade goods and heartfelt poems and songs. All offerings are given to the Kindreds, taking them permanently out of human use (burned or otherwise eliminated/destroyed). A greeter and the Presiding Druid can direct you on how best to make your patrticular offering, as well as the appropriate time to do so.
