The magical gift exchange is for those items that we have bought for ourselves or have been gifted to us that don’t really speak or serve purpose anymore. Jewelry, tarot, stones, books and etc. Sometimes we find ourself with items intended for other people. These are the items that are perfect for the magical gift exchange. Wrap it up and bring it to join in on the fun of a rousing game of Sneaky/Dirty Santa!

For potluck please bring something to feed up to 8 to 10 people. Remember to bring the ingredients if not store bought! For those of you who don’t cook stay tuned for a post from the Kitchen Witch for other household/kitchen items that might be needed.

It is 10 dollars to stay in the house if you wish but space is limited. It is also 10 dollars to camp for any brave souls willing to do so in the cold!

Come and please spend the day with us and brightest Yuletide Blessings to those who cannot make the journey!
