Love And Joy Come To You!
Blessings, toasting, sharing and giving thanks during the Yuletide period is tradition and social distancing is making that hard for us this year. But we've figured out a way to come to you virtually by wassailing! That's right, we’ll be coming to you not quite door to door, but virtually with "luck visits" and singing carols via your electronic devices to wish you and yours good health and good fortune! An opportunity to bring some community merriment into your own homes.
The day will begin with a workshop by Rev. Selena Fox on the tradition of Wassailing. You'll also have the opportunity to make your own wassail to toast with later during the ritual.
We'll follow the workshop by our Wassailing concert of wonderful community members from across the country offering their songs, recitals, readings and toasts to you in your homes.
The day will wrap up with the Yule Ritual! Wassail!
