Yule Present Swap
The Swap Gallery

The festival of Yule marks the lowest point on the Wheel of the Year. The days have been growing shorter until the night has triumphed over daylight, winter weather is truly here now, and much of the plant and animal world has died or withdrawn from view. But we greet the Winter Solstice not with gloom and dread but with celebration! It is a time of parties, feasts, family gatherings, colourful lights and decorations, music and above all, the sharing of presents. As we exchange presents with family and friends, let's also share handmade gifts among our WWP family.

For this swap, send your partner a handmade, gift-wrapped present to be opened on Yule (December 21st). This is a substantial swap, so your package should contain at least one large item, or two medium items, a medium and two small items, or three or more small items. You may also include other items (made or purchased) for your partner's children or other family members if you like, but you should discuss it with your partner first.

Some information on the Sabbat: https://www.circlesanctuary.org/index.php/celebrating-the-seasons/winter-solstice

To participate, complete this questionnaire, and PM it to the organizer, Wulf. Participants must post in the swap thread at least once a week, and maintain regular communication with their partners. Sharing the package you've received with everyone else is an important part of swapping, please post photos in the Swap Gallery. If you won't be able to for some reason, be sure to let your partner know early so they can take photos before sending.

Oops! I forgot to bookmark my own swap!

Yule is my favourite sabbat, and I always look forward to it.The weather here in Toronto usually doesn't turn really unpleasantly cold until after the 21st, so it's often quite mild and there is usually very little snow, if any. Also, I really dread the shortening days of Autumn, so the knowledge that dawn will now start to come a little earlier makes me feel more positive.

Adding everyone to the swap list now.

Funny how a river and some latitude degree can change the weather! Here at Yule we're burried in snow and it's freezing cold, around -20c. It should be better here in the city than where we were, thought. (but not much!)

As much as I'd love to sign up for this..I have to sit this one out Sad We have been working lots of overtime in our shop, which is a good thing for my paycheck, but a bad thing for my free time lol! I actually may be working straight through until Thanksgiving and even then I may just have that day off then back to work Sad So I don't want to sign up then not be able to get a lovely package done on time. I will definately be stalking the swap though!  Wink
