Celebrate the Winter Solstice with Weavers of the Web with a ritual to welcome in the renewal of the light and to exchange gifts. We will be at the church/store for this ritual. Please bring a gift that is recycled (i.e., from your home, not purchased) for our gift exchange.
At 4pm, our doors will open and raffle tickets will go on sale. Circle cast will be at 5pm for our traditional Weavers Yule ritual honoring the rebirth of the light. Our main ritual will also be available by YouTube livestream and Patreon, as usual, so everybody can enjoy the ritual in whichever manner calls to them best. Everyone will have a chance to honor the season in our ritual. As a friendly reminder, all observers of WISE-tradition rituals must be participants within the circle, and all are welcome.
After ritual, we will break bread together. Iced tea, coffee, and water will be available. Please bring your own food to eat, and, if you like, you may bring something to share with the group (please label with ingredients).
For those of you who are not planning to come in-person, we are offering the ability to purchase a “gift ticket” in exchange for a $10 donation, and we will send you a small gift in the mail that you can open during the online ritual. In addition to your gift, you’ll also want to have a tree or something symbolic to decorate, along with decorations for it; a candle or Yule log; runes for divination (visit this page for a free online rune drawing if you don’t have your own), and cakes and ale. Setting up your ritual space at home with incense, candles, and your regular altar supplies will help enhance your experience.
Attendance to our sabbat rituals is always free! Donations help to cover our operating expenses as well as help grow our Temple fund. You can help out by bringing cash, donating via PayPal, or become a subscribing member through Patreon. Circle cast will be at 5:00pm, so please arrive early.
As is now our tradition, we will be having a teacup raffle with donated items. If you have any items at home that are ready to bring joy to a new home, please consider bringing them to donate to the raffle. Tickets will go on sale at the beginning of the day, and the drawing will be at 7:30pm. Online attendees are welcome to participate; a video tour of the auction table will be given after ritual, and online tickets may be purchased via Paypal donation.
