Get a Sweet Taste of that Old Religion

BBC Yule Ritual – 15 December 2018

Victorian Yule Story

 

A Victorian Yule Story

Join Blackberry Circle as we once again celebrate Yule. This will be our 13th Yule celebration and is our 13th anniversary of BBC’s first public ritual.

CHILDREN’S RITUAL

A children’s ritual will be held at 3:30 PM with arrival at 3:00 PM. We will have little gifts and games for the children following the ritual.

REGULAR RITUAL

The adult ritual will be held at 5:00 PM with arrival at 4:30 PM.

Please do not arrive early unless you have children and come for the children’s ritual.

This year we are celebrating with a Victorian Yule Story (translated to A Christmas Carol, with the Pagan slant).
This ritual will involve walking from the Otherworld Circle back up to the Circle of the Life. You will be introduced to various scenes along the way.

For those who have not attended in the past, yes, we have two Circles we utilize.

We will have a white elephant/pirate gift exchange following the ritual for the adults. If you would like to take part in the gift exchange bring something you think folks would fight over, that way you can sit back and enjoy the fun.

The obligatory post-ritual pot luck will also be available. Bring something you would like to share with your fellow Yule revelers.
A raffle and some sales will also be available after the ritual to help raise funds to support the public rituals. We usually have some pretty neat stuff, so bring cash if you would like to take part in the raffle.

In short, be sure to bring:

  • A camping or lawn chair to rest your weary arse in;
  • Something for the white elephant/pirate gift exchange if you want to take part;
  • Food you would like to share with others for the pot luck;
  • A sense of humour.

PLEASE DO NOT bring your fur children. Furless ones are always welcome at BBC unless otherwise specified.
