December 24th from noon to 3pm
Join us at Ffynnon on December 24th from noon to 3pm for a Yuletide celebration where we will drink mulled cider and burn the Ffynnon Yule log - the longest remaining piece of this year’s Maypole!
Activity: Burn the Yule log - collect the ash
We gather around a warm fire and celebrate the Winter Solstice as we burn the Yule log which is a log from the Maypole, now brought forth from the Ancestor Shrine. Doing this we prepare ourselves for the darkest days to come wherein we contemplate the blessings we wish to bring to the community at next year’s Beltane rites, and sing carols and praises for the Return of the Light on the Longest Night.
We collect the Sacred Ash from the Yule fire, keeping its nourishing carbon and minerals to return to the land for the overwintered seeds at Imbolc.
This is a free event for our members and the public but registration is still required. We will be outside so dress prepared for the weather, and bring snacks if desired.
