Our Next High Day Celebration is for Spring Equinox – Saturday, March 21st, 2015
Join us as we honor the Nature Spirits! As is our tradition, we will drum them awake for the spring!
We’re going to have a fun contest at this event! Everyone is encouraged to bring a decorated egg (real, wooden, paper, etc) to display. We’ll vote on the most “eggcellent!” These may then be used as offerings for the Nature Spirits.
At 4, each of us will make a mask to represent a different Nature Spirit that we will call to during the ritual. The purpose is to help us focus on a specific Nature Spirit so that we’re mentally prepared for the ritual. Also… fun!
Around 5, we’ll honor the Nature Spirits. We will see how the weather is before we decide to have the ritual outdoors as we want it to be as accessible as possible. Bring drums, shakers, sticks, hip scarves, or just your hands to clap! Kids are encouraged to MAKE SOME NOISE as we wake up the Nature Kin!
After ritual, we’ll feast! The potluck theme will be “Welcome Spring!” What dishes remind you of returning life? Check the potluck thread to see who is planning to bring what, and comment with your own dish for planning purposes.
*** Business Meeting***
After potluck and socializing, the Folk and Allies are asked to stay a little longer for a business meeting. Agenda to follow.
