As the darkest day of the Year approaches,
And the cold temps and loneliness creep in,
Join the SerpentStone Family for Laughter and Warmth,
Good Food, and a Light and Giggly Main Ritual at 4 PM.,

Sharing of Talent and Yuletide Carols sung by the fire.
Lots of Laughter and Warmth to celebrate the season!

No pets allowed as there is a resident feline and the occasional canine about. The downstairs is Pet and Smoke free for those allergic to dander and smoke. Tobacco products will be used ONLY outside on deck or porch or in the open garage.
Treat each other with respect, and respect all paths. Take care of those you come with, and respect the land, by leaving the space cleaner than you found it.
No illegal drugs, firearms, drunken behavior, bad attitudes, or violence or other inappropriate behaviors will be condoned on the site. We DO enforce the no drugs rule, and security has active duty law enforcement included, so don't bring them!
Soup will be offered on Friday night.
Please bring pot-luck offering for Feast. It need not be prepared unless it is baked. Please drop these off at the kitchen as soon as possible after arriving, so our Kitchen Witch and helpers can begin working their magick! Having enough for everyone is dependent on everyone bringing something for the kitchen, so please help us have a bountiful feast!
Please bring a small wrapped gift with a blank tag for the Gift Exchange if you wish to participate. (only for those 13 and older).
This is not a clothing optional event, and alcohol is permitted in moderation.
