The Barony of Selviergard invites the Knowne World to celebrate the joyous season of Yule with us. There will be much feasting and fun, including the annual Rock, Paper, Scissors contest, which will decide the Lord and Lady of Misrule!
There will be a heavy combat and a rapier tournament to appoint two Holly Lords/Ladies who will have the privilege, along with their consorts, of attending Feast at the Table of Misrule, which will sit as a second High Table.
A special A&S contest will be held: pantomimes, three-to-five-minute plays. The subjects will be moral or folk stories popular in period. Documentation is welcome but is not necessary. The most well acted pantomime and the one with the best props/costumes will receive prizes sponsored by the Autocrat. "Medieval Folklore: A Guide to Myths, Legends, Tales, Beliefs, and Customs" by Carl Lindahl, John McNamara, and John Lindow is a good research book for this contest (the Autocrat has a copy if you would like to peruse it at any prior business meeting or event).
Feast will be held at 4pm. It will be potluck, with meats and breads provided. Please bring a dish that will serve 8-10 people according to your birth month: January-April side dish, May-August veggies, and September-December desserts. We will only have the kitchen for a limited time prior to Feast, so if your dish needs to be kept warm, please bring a crockpot or some other type of warmer that we will be able to plug in elsewhere.
After Feast the populace will decorate a pine tree with paper ornaments and strands of dried fruit. The decorations will be made throughout the day by children and adults alike. Then there will be a white elephant gift exchange. Each adult who wishes to participate should bring one wrapped gift, not to exceed $20 in worth. Children under the age of fifteen will receive small gift bags on behalf of the Barony.
