Sundragon Solstice–Birth of the Sun

Sundragon Solstice–Birth of the Sun

As the seasons turn and night extends its hold, there will come a time to gather as a chosen family to celebrate the birth of the sun and the return of longer days. Come join the Barony of Sundragon on December 10th as we make merry to commemorate the tenure of service of Baroness Valdisa and Baron Wolff, honor the investment of our new Baroness and Baron, and herald in sunnier days.

The festivities will begin at 9:00am at Bourgade Catholic High School. Along with the investiture of the new Baroness and Baron, Solstice events include: a kids’ corner, our traditional white elephant gift exchange, dancing, music, a cultural dessert competition, memorial toasts, and a Lord/Lady of Misrule game. And when the sun begins its descent in the sky, we shall come together to enjoy a feast that includes many traditional holiday food favorites. As we will have merrily met, alas we must eventually part as the site must close at 5:00pm.
