45 River Street, Unit 1B, Millbury, MA
Our next meeting will be 6:15 on Monday, December 5 in the Hurstwic Valhalla training room in Millbury, MA. Emily Randall will present Home for the (Heathen) Holidays.
Not so long ago, Santa was a billy goat and Lucia was a bride. The popular symbols of an old-fashioned Nordic Yule point directly to the heathen past, kept alive in folk customs and curious imagery. We'll look at the deep history of three winter celebrations and perhaps draw some inspiration for our own.
