Open Yule Ritual and Feast

EarthSpirit invites you to attend its annual
Winter Solstice Celebration
Ritual In Somerville

Join us as we gather together to welcome the returning light to the Earth, and take part in a ritual celebrating the longest night and this cycle of the seasons. We come together to renew our connections and share the warmth of community.

The Winter Solstice, also known as Yule, is the holiday celebrating the rebirth of the Sun in the Pagan year. At this time of year many in the Northern Hemisphere gather together to rejoice at the beginning of the lengthening days.

The Boston Area Ritual will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2016 at:

First Church Somerville
89 College Ave
Davis Square, Somerville, MA 02144

(There is parking nearby and it is MBTA accessible.)

The celebration will open at 5:30 PM and the doors will close at 6:00 PM for the duration of the evening celebration. This is a family participation event.

Please note the earlier time to make this a family friendly occasion.

Donations for admission $10
Young people's admission (under 16) $6.00


Don't forget to bring a can of food for the local Food Pantry as a symbol of the way we can nourish one another through the dark time.
