I wanted to share a few resources that might help you find groups you can join or events you can attend in your local areas:
Witchvox.com– This site provides groups and individuals a platform to post groups and/or events. You can look up by state to see what is in your area.
To find someplace local, look to the Left Side of the web site Home page and look under ‘YOUR town…” Once you’re on the next page, continue to look a the Left Side of the page to look up group specific to type. You can find teen, adult, college, etc.
CUUPS (Covenant Unitarian Universalist Pagans) is affiliated with the UU churches. You can search for groups in your area, or check with your local UU church to see if you can form your own group. You can also look up chapters by the area you live in. Some groups provide ‘open circles’, so you can join a workshop or ritual without being a member.
Meetup.com– This is not specific to pagan, but you can find pagan/wiccan/witch groups. Membership is free, but being an organizer costs $20 per month. Some groups also ask for membership fees, while others are free. You can search your local area for meetup groups specific to your interest such as ghost hunting, pagan, healing, or start your own group.
When I started my own groups, it was because, at the time, there were no local groups established. The Internet certainly helps now. If you can’t find any local groups, start your own, or consider joining groups through Facebook or Twitter.
December Moon falls on December 13, 2016 this year, known as Full Cold Moon or Long Nights Moon. This marks we are full in the winter season and endure the cold months ahead.
In this month, we’ll see the Winter Solstice or Yule on December 21st. This marks the shortest day of the year, and from here on out, we’ll see the days lengthen in light.
Some fun activities you might enjoy:
Create a Yule Log. The history of the Yule log dates back to the 17th century Europe. This is great if you have a fire pit or fireplace to burn it, but you can do something similar with creating a Yule log cake.

Make food offerings for Nature. Make seed, fruit, and other foodstuffs for the animals as they survive the Winter. You can also add blessings and wishes to your feeders.

Donate food to local food pantry.
Run a food and fund drive.

Red Cross– You can donate blood, money, or even your time.

I like these ideas by The White Witch Parlour on Youtube. I want to do the counting blessings idea, but will use a jar specific for this use. I’ll post when its complete.
