On the Thursday before Christmas, December 23rd, at 8:00 p.m. your host Poke Runyon (Frater Thabion), assisted by Merrick Rees Hamer and Soror Zandria, will narrate and read the Baal Samin Winter Solstice ceremony which we performed at Rivendell on the 18th. This won't be up to Orson Welles' Mercury Radio Theater standards (no sound effects and crowd noise) but we will try to get the meaning across. This rite tells the story of Baal's battle with Lotan, the Dragon of Chaos, which Baal has no chance of winning without the help of the Moon Goddess Tanit. So tune in and help us celebrate the Return of the Sun at Winter Solstice.
