Posts Tagged ‘Yule 2013’

Thanks to all who came and made the Yule Ritual and Feast a brilliant success. On Saturday, December 21, 2013, a few members and guests of SLPS gathered and welcomed back the Yule King from the world of the ancestors. Piggy, playing the Goddess, gave birth to Lunar Oak Spirit as Cernunnos. All knelt and honored the returned Lord. This time of year is when the sun begins his ascent and starts to increase in light, and when the Oak King reigns again till Midsummer. President Muad’Dib performed a druid rite for Yule and after a beautiful poetry reading, gave the cakes and wine offerings to the Oak King and Goddess and asked blessing for the new year as the light returns.

The feasting included rotisserie chicken, green beans and quinoa, potato salad and fruitcake. Check out the photos below!
