[OUT] Caerthen Yule

Imagine, if you will, Yule-tide seasons of years past, with warm hearth, great food, cheerful music, and good friends. The smells of ever-green, the burning yule log, and bread pudding fill the air. Holly green and red, the
presentation of the Boar's Head, and the spectacle of the Lord of Misrule!

Come sing, dance, game, and eat with fellow revelers at this traditional celebration, which has been a part of Caerthe (and the SCA) since it's inception, and which has been absent for a few years now. Join us to welcome it back!
