Join in the merriment!  Partake of the feast!  Join us at the Barony of SunDragon Solstice!

Buon Natale!
In honor of our lovely Baroness, Her Excellency Viola Carrerra, the Barony of SunDragon invites you to join us for a journey to Italy for our annual solstice celebration on Saturday, December 17, 2011. The hall will be a feast for the eyes in RED, WHITE, and GREEN. The populous is encouraged to show your finery.  And for the stomach - an Italian feast of anti-pasta dishes, Italian specialties, mixed greens, roast vegetables and dessert. Court will be at Their Excellencies pleasure with the feast to follow.   Bring your feast ware.
Many activities will take place during and after the meal.  We will have our traditional gift exchange for those who wish to participate. (A wrapped gift of a suggested price of $10 or less). If you like, bring an ornament for the tree and take a different one home. Exhibit your bardic skills. The theme is – ITALIAN (what else could it be?). For our cooks, please bring your Italian cookies to compete for a prize.  Categories are: 1) Best Tasting and 2) Populous Choice.   Those who love to decorate - please adorn your tables. There will be prizes for the 1) Best Italian Theme, and 2) Populous Choice.
