Hello & Merry Meet! I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I am new to the group, and I am actually located in Rhode Island. I have been a Solitary Witch/Pagan/Eclectic/Wiccan for 13 years. I am quite adept in many areas of the craft, some being Divination & Egyptian Mythology. :)

Brightest Blessings to everyone!

A Befana Yule Celebration by the Society of Elder Faiths

Sunday December 16
Brigham Hill Community Farm
37 Wheeler Road, North Grafton
Doors open at 3 PM, Orientation at 4 PM
Admission (Suggested Donation) $5 Members / $10 non-members / under 18 free!

A Yule Celebration for All Ages! This year we will be presenting a ”Befana Yule” ritual. Befana is the Italian “good witch” who brings gifts of the season to the children. She represents the Goddess of the Hearth who gives renewal to the Sun. She is also the old crone who connects us to our Ancestors and the cycle of life, growth, and renewal.

All attendees are requested to bring a fully-cooked and prepared hearty dish to be shared at the post-ritual feast, along with serving utensils. We’ll supply cups, plates, eating utensils, and oven space to warm food. We do not sell or provide alcohol, but you may bring some for your own moderate consumption. Parents must stay with their kids.

     Personal note from Vinnie:

A bit of history about “A Befana Yule Celebration”

In Italy, Befana is often referred to as "The Good Witch".  In secular and Christian Italy, Her feast day falls in January on the celebration of Epiphany. However, as Pagans, we celebrate Her as the connection between the past and the future. She is the representation of both our ancestors and our descendants - she is the center point. Befana is the manifestation in ourselves of the Crone and Great Mother and through her Mysteries we find understanding of the dying and reborn year as manifested in her Son, the Sun. Some hold to the native Italian custom of holding Her Feast in January while others have incorporated her Feast into celebrations of the Winter Solstice and reborn Sun.

In the late 1800's and early 1900's, many Italians immigrated to the USA. Once here, they found that many of Befana's outward characteristics (protector of children, gift giving, flying through the air, etc.) were quite similar to those of the American Santa Clause/St. Nicholas.  Many of these immigrant families blended their older customs with those of their new homeland.

The Befana Yule ritual similarly blends old and new customs. It is a celebration of community through ritual story telling as well as the magic and Mystery of the Sun's rebirth by the Great Mother.
