The trees are baring their forms, and what of ourselves? It is time to rest and reflect so that when spring does arrive it gives us a new birth. Join us to mark the coming season with communal dance, invocation and magic. The Village will be a winter wonderland full of tropical icicles, falling snow, and sizzling snow queens. A giant cast is coming together to create this night with music, performance, group singing, and faux ice skating. During this season we are close to the veil between worlds. To enter a new world (and to enter the ball) - take a new form for the night. Don your masks and spin your shimmering cloths. As you take stock of what you have and what you really need, reflect on these posessions. To purge is also to renew - bring your like-new jackets and toys to us on the night of the ball or sooner. We will distribute them to our neighbors in need at our free Music Box holiday throwdown event the following Tuesday, December 18th. It's time to let in the spirit and share it! This winter invocation will punctuate the night. Shed your leaves, roll down your sleeves, knock your knees, and consider your deeds. The new year comes to set you free, put aside all the me me me. Give to the world! It will give back to thee.
