Well wow soon be Yule, can't wait for the sun to start regaining strength and for the evenings to be getting lighter longer again. Though it is nice to have candles on and snuggle up against the cold, lighter evenings are even better so that you can get more done.
As it is nearly Winter Solstice us Chesterfield Pagans crew are holding Yule Celebrations at Eyre Chapel again in Newbold, Chesterfield around the back of the Nags Head and all are invited. It's a free event so no worries there, though some food and drink for the food share is welcome, just bring enough for yourself and a bit extra so we can all sample each others goodies. Eyre Chapel is a lovely old building and where we hold our drum group every first Thursday of each month.
Ritual will most likely be inside this year rather than round the fire, hope we can squeeze everyone in, good job we're all friendly folk. There is to be drumming in the ritual and afterwards as well if folk want, so if you have a drum bring it along and drum up that sun.
We are also looking for people to do a spot of entertainment/performance so if you have a talent you'd like to get into the open let us know (family friendly preferably), it doesn't have to be a long performance just wanting to get folk involved :0) This is our facebook page Chesterfield, Derbyshire Pagans Page more event details can be found there.
Afterward there will be music to dance to, or jig around to, or bop along to, whichever your style is ;0)
So see ya there around half seven on Saturday 19th December?
