I’m giving away three copies of my new eBook, “A Crown of Candles: How to Throw a Fabulous Lucia Party” !!!!
Just leave a comment below, and I will choose THREE NAMES at random this weekend. I’ll announce the winners here on Monday November 8th. Best of luck!
If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you’ve read my posts about our annual Lucia Party, like this one or this one. Last year I asked if any of you would appreciate a “how-to” book, and you answered with a resounding “Yes!” So here it is . . . in time for you to plan your own party, or incorporate some of the ideas into your Winter Solstice or Yule ceremonies and rituals.
Here’s what a few people have said about the eBook & companion website:
“We are in the midst of preparing a celebration about St. Lucia at Midwinter, in a series of seasonal celebrations in the Protestant Church in the Netherlands. We use A Crown of Candles in our preparations. It helps us to understand what St. Lucia is about and we are inspired by the many activities we can choose from. We love the scripts for the ‘Numinous Beings,’ especially the script of the Child of Wonder. Well written and open all to ways of life.” — Berthe van Soest, member of the team Feest van Aarde en Hemel
“You have successfully woven the Spiritual (all those carefully researched Legends and Stories)with the Practical (mouthwatering recipes and bless you for including the instructions on making the Crown of Candles!) into a Solstice Celebration Tapestry that could rightly take its place among anything already established.” — Lady North, British Columbia
“I was entranced with the video you posted last year, and thought it was a delightful way to spend an evening during the holiday season. When I saw the eBook, I was truly impressed with its beauty and organization. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. There is even a sample invitation, recipes, song lists . . . I could go on. I am a fan of Waverly Fitzgerald and she is given a nod in this magnificent collection. I imagine that my own Santa Lucia party is not far off!” — Jo-Ann S., Michigan
Thanks everybody! Enjoy!
