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've been to the Festival of Lights once before, and it was magical. Parades and lights and fire spinners and clowns and just a feast for all the senses. I'm going again this year with M and several friends. I'm coming right from work so I can't dress up, but I will be in wild costume on the inside. :-)

Keep half an eye out for a guy in a black robe and birch bark mask carrying a glowing blue jar!
