2015 Milwaukee Area Yule Lunch.  Hosted by Milwaukee PUC

Comment by wade on December 2, 2015 at 5:02pm

Yuletide in the Northwoods!

Event Details: All Hail the Holly King! Join us for a weekend of Yule frivolity and the warmth of good food and shared company.

We will be doing all the traditional DR Yuletide things including the bonfire, spiced cider and wine (perhaps even some fire whiskey) , tons of food, ritual at dusk on Sat night, raffle, and the wonderful and meaningful jump into the pond after ritual (always recruiting for that, nothing says Yule like stripping down and jumping into a hole in the ice into freezing water…) .

For the truly hardcore there will be a walkabout Saturday 11am through the winter wonderland that is DR this time of year. 3pm will find us talking about Yule/solstice lore and history. After the dusk ritual will be the feast, polar plunge and pagan caroling (after the polar folks warm up) !

There will be a fun gift exchange in which anyone that is interested can bring a present or two and we will pile them up and hand them out to all involved. If there are a ton of people bringing gifts there will be a lot, if not then no worries. Please bring a dish to pass for the Saturday night feast and warm clothing. We will be mostly inside but the numbers of folks coming means there will be some spillover outside. The new lodge will be open for sleeping, so be sure to reserve your space when you register!

Friday Evening: Arrivals & General Frivolity

Saturday:
9am – Breakfast
11am – Winter Walkabout on the Land (w/ Wade) . Dress warm!
12:30pm – Lunch
3pm – Discussion: Yule/Solstice Lore & History
5pm – Solstice Ritual (by Mary) 
6:30pm – Solstice Feast & Potluck
8pm – Annual Polar Plunge in the pond.
10pm – Bonfire & Pagan Caroling

Sunday:
9am – Breakfast
11am – DR Board Meeting
12pm – Departures

Things to Bring: Dish for the Saturday Potluck (main and side dishes are most welcome, people can only eat so much chips and salsa…) , bring your own food for other meals (to share or for yourself) , sleeping gear (there will be spaces to sleep in the lodge – meaning, there will be heat, but it could still get a bit chilly, so sleeping bags and extra blankets might be wise) , gift (s) for the Gift Exchange (optional) , musical instruments (optional)

May 1st-3rd Beltain at Deeply Rooted, all the usual fun and excitement that come with the holiday. Friday evening is the set-up and socializing around the bonfire. Saturday morning breakfast and 11am walk around the land, showing off the place and the change of the seasons. Light lunch at midday and then the 2pm May Games! Rock tossing, spear and crown trowing, foot races, kubb, and the ever-epic tie-breaking for the contests just like our ancestors did, rock-paper-scissors. 4pm Maypole dance, bring drums or other musical instruments if you are so inclined. 5pm discussion on the history of the holiday and ritual prep. 6pm ritual in the Stone Circle followed by the potluck feast. Bonfire after the feast and 11pm discussion on sacred sexuality. There is limited indoor sleeping space but plenty of camping space available. We are asking for a donation of $25 for the weekend, $10 for just saturday, work/exchange available and no one turned away for lack of funds. Raffle, the end of the men vs. women penny wars and all the other fun stuff that goes with the holiday. See ya then!

Imbolc at Deeply Rooted Jan 30th-Feb1st. This is one of my favorite sabbats, in large part because its all about getting people outside during the freezing cold time of the year and get all excited about the renewal of life and the quickening of life all around them while they are shivering in blizzard conditions:-). On friday the 30th we will get some rousing games going inside, bonfire if folks are so inclined. Saturday the 31st will find the hardy few going on a hike in the woods at 11am, lunch at noon. at 2pm I'll be leading a workshop on the history and practices surrounding Imbolc/Imbolg/Groundhog Day/Charming of the Plow. Ritual at 5pm, in stone circle if possible and if not then the main fire circle. Pot luck feast to follow around 6:30. At 8pm we will have the votes tallied for the annual Board election, hopefully Nick Wozniak can toss in some details on that. Revelry and merrymaking to follow. Sunday is polka, leftover breakfast, Board meeting and all that usual stuff.
The ritual is, as always, made by those that show up and participate. Imbolc/Charming of the Plow is all about declarations and oaths about what individuals are planning on doing for the upcoming year. On the great Wheel of the Year the time between Samhain and Yule is rest and recover, Yule to Imbolc is planning and organizing and at Imbolc you have the upcoming year set and ready to go so you declare and oath to the deities of your choice and the community about what those plans are. I always tell folks that if you don't have plans and goals, go get some! Pagans are not passive people for whom things happen to, we are the ones that do and that make things occur.
Bring a dish to pass for the feast, warm clothing, some cash for the raffle, and powerful positive energy to assist with the return of spring and life to the Northwoods. Indoor space is limited so let me know asap if you need a place to crash. We are asking $25 for weekend, $15 for Saturday, less $5 for members. No one turned away for lack of cash, I can put you to work chopping ice and chucking wood. See ya then!
