Out Yule Ritual Saturday – Prayers by me
Set up large altar in center 2 long tables?
Hand out glow in the dark goodies Kris and Kat
Carols before Ritual
We hear a voice or two:
Tune is O come O come, Emmanuel (plain chant) reworked by ElfKat
O come, O come, O Solstice Light
And shine upon our hearts so bright
The light of love that echoes here
And shines out to all who love us here
Rejoice, Rejoice, and listen to your heart
A single light that brightens the dark
Rejoice, Rejoice and listen to your heart
And share the spark of love in every heart.
A Light enters the darkened room and moves to the center
A voice in the darkness says
ElfKat “Love is the beacon we are all drawn to.”
A voice from a different place around the room
Kris “We are love and we are drawn to each other.”
Two people from different places repeat.
Anniitra & Pat “Love is the beacon we are all drawn to.”
Priestess light candles around the room
All Priestesses Present “Love is life, love is light, love is the beacon we are all drawn to.”
People should bring their elemental offerings up after each elemental invitation and place on altar

Sing “It’s in every one of us”
Everyone holds a candle and passes the love, ie: the light, from one to another around the circle.
ElfKat We share love in this season dedicated to the light and love’s return to our lives and seek to remember that is always there even when we forget. All we have to do is open our eyes and ask that it be shown to us.
Kris Love is the look in a friend’s eyes
Callista Love is a cat’s purr
Diana Love is helping another without being asked
Pat Love is in the sunlight on our faces
Anniitra Love is the warmth in the darkness
Joanne Love is the colour in a bird’s wing
ElfKat Love is the flash of a disappearing squirrel’s tail
Priestesses Love is all around us
Help us to see it.
Callista talks about St Lucy/Lucina and other gift giving traditions
Turn the lights on in the room and share the token gifts
Pass plates of cookies our food so that all may be without hunger
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter (1/4 pound) melted
2 whole eggs
1 square (1 oz) bitter chocolate
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 Tsp vanilla
Mix together sugar and butter
Beat in the 2 eggs
Melt over hot water 1 square chocolate, cool slightly and beat in butter mixture.
Sift before measuring and beat into the butter mixture the flour.
Bake the batter in a greased 8 1/2 inch pie plate in a slow (325) degree oven for 30 minutes.
The pie will look and feel moist and gooey but don’t on that account bake it longer. It’s supposed to look and feel that way.
Cool in pan, cut into 6 pieces and dish each piece into individual dessert plates. Top each serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
5 whole eggs
1 lb of powdered sugar
½ tsp lump powdered ammonia (Also called Baker’s Ammonia)
2 drops oil of anise
Flour to make stiff enough to knead
Beat eggs well
Add other ingredients
Roll ¼ inch thick
Print with mold
Let stand overnight
Bake at 350 degrees until straw coloured
If you cannot find Baker’s Ammonia you can substitute an equal amount of baking powder. Baker’s Ammonia was used in Northern European recipes pre-baking powder. If you do use the Baker’s Ammonia, do not sample the dough! It’s a leavening agent that is harmless after cooking but your kitchen may stink a bit during baking.
