Yule: The Winter Solstice

As the winter's cold settles around us, we gather on the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, to honor and celebrate the rebirth of the Light into the world. Come and join our celebration, and find the Child of Light within you, as we turn the wheel for our last sabbat of 2018.

Please plan to arrive at least 10-15 minutes prior to our start-time to get checked-in and settled before we begin. Once the doors are closed for ritual, no one will be admitted.

Temple of Witchcraft rituals are open to all, and no experience is necessary to participate in the celebration, only an open heart and open mind is required. Feel free to wear your ritual finery or robes if you so choose. If you have questions about the ritual, please email pisces@templeofwitchcraft.org.

Post-Ritual Potluck

We have the opportunity to share the bounty of our lives together as a community with our post-ritual potluck feast! Please consider bringing an item to share, based on the first letter of your last name:

  • A-E: A sweet or savory dessert: cookies, cake, pie, fresh or dried fruit, chocolate (good for grounding!), etc.
  • F-J: Beverages (non-alcoholic, please): tea, cider, fruit juice, lemonade, etc.
  • K-O: A grain item such as bread or crackers, possibly with an accompaniment like cheese or hummus, if you wish.
  • P-S: A side dish, perhaps a salad of vegetables or fruits (or both!). Try to keep salads vegetarian (no meat) or vegan (no animal products, including milk or cheese).
  • T-Z: A main dish which could include a protein (either meat or vegetarian).

If you can, please label your food item so we know what it is and if it contains meat, is vegan (containing no animal products), vegetarian (containing eggs or dairy) or gluten-free, for those with dietary needs.

Our Mother Ministry will provide all the necessary eating utensils, cups, napkins, and so forth, although we encourage attendees to bring their own reusable eating-wear to minimize waste. Visit the Temple Store for our reusable bento boxes and support the Temple while also going green! If you have questions about what to bring, please email cancer@templeofwitchcraft.org.

Toy Drive Donations

The Temple's Cancer Ministry will be holding our annual toy drive for "Toys for Tots" at Yule. Please consider bringing a new and unwrapped toy or game suitable for children to donate. Help to make a child's holiday season blessed and magical! For questions about our charitable donation programs, please email donations@templeofwitchcraft.org.
