Ticket Price: Free! Please bring a dish to share and a wrapped gift for the White Elephant gift exchange if participating. 

Program Notes:

6:00 - 7:00 - The Winter Wonderland: A Yuletide Faerie Celebration

The Yuletide season is upon us and the Faeries are about! Like Samhain, Yule traditions about with the lore of the Good Folk. Knowing the Old Ways of our ancestors are the vital core of living the Pagan way, and this year we will be exploring and honoring these connections with our Yule ceremony.

Please bring appropriate clothing and footwear as we will be going outside for this ceremony (weather permitting).

7:00 to 8:00 - Potluck Dinner! We'll have lots of food on hand but please bring a dish to share too to share the abundance. If you bring a dish please also bring an ingredient list, and if it is geared to a certain dietary restriction (i.e. gluten-free or vegan). 

8:00 - 9:00 - White Elephant Gift Exchange - Our White Elephants always have a theme, and this year will be Faeries! Shortly upon your registration, you will receive an email with information about a randomly drawn species of the Good Folk to use as the theme for your gift to purchase (or make), as if the Good Folk were your intended recipient. The email will offer specifics about the Faerie you picked and some salient features that will help you find an appropriate gift (price limit $20). Please wrap this gift and put the name of the Faerie on it (Game bonus: leave off the name so the ultimate gift receiver can attempt to guess the gift bringer and then the Faerie) and put it under the tree if you want to participate. 

See the list of possible Faerie assignment for guessing during the game: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10f83VkLkbVWTznyNUL8qQU8xwA8DQ1R_2BEhfILqSHc/edit?usp=sharing
