[OUT] Caer Galen Midwinter

description:
On this 13th day of December, 999 Anno Domini, Their Excellencies of Caer Galen, Bjarki and Asta, cordially invite you to join them in celebrating winter in its most festive fashion!

This year, we celebrate our Midwinter alongside the Dnieper River, in the beautiful seat of the Rurikid rulers, Kiev. The delegation from Constantinople has come up to visit the Kievan Princes, as well as various envoys from Scandinavia to conduct trade negotiations.

Lady Shoshanna Rimcha bat Reuven is preparing a Russian and Ottoman Feast that will quite possibly break the serving boards! We will also have a lunch sideboard that is included in your site fee. Please contact her directly at Shoshanna@caergalen.org with dietary restrictions and requests.
