Monday is Winter Solstice. I'll be staying up all night to make sure the sun comes back on Tuesday. :)

I'm working Monday, but taking Tuesday off to sleep. We'll see how this goes - I prefer to do the vigil without stimulants since I figure it should be difficult. Given that by the time the sun rises on Tuesday, I'll have been up for more than 25 hours, I may give up and caffinate. Or have absinthe. We shall see.

The plan is to leave work a bit early and get home to do my opening rit at sunrise. Thereafter, I'm not sure what I'm getting up to. I want to hit the festival of lights in Kensington, but I also want to hang out with the "It's not a school night!" Stitch and Bitch crowd.

I'm giving serious thought to dressing up in a robe and my birch bark mask for Kensington, just because. I also think I will rig up a carrying method for a moon jar, since it is effectively captured sunlight in a jar. I'd also like to see how long it lasts on a full charge with the new batteries in it.

Has anyone else been to the festival of lights before? When are the prime hours to be there?

i have never been to Kensington.

(i'll wait for the shocked gasps and squeals to die down)

i have no plans for monday and could conceivably be in TO at any time prior to S&B or a walkabout. by which i mean to say, i'm flexible (and would gleefully wear my Green Man mask and ensemble to accompany such amblings ;-)

Should be a goods time to check it out - the most dangerous shops should be closed, protecting pocket books. :)

My current provisional plan is to get home from work by 4, do my opening rit at sunset (around 4:30, IIRC), and then make it to Kensington for 6 when the parade starts. I figure two hours outside in the cold may be enough, so heading homewards for S+B around 8ish.

If you want to meet me either at my place or in Kensington, it'd be lovely to see you. :)

Is it okay if I show up for rit, are are you planning something private-ish?

You're entirely welcome at the rit.
