Winter arrived with a bang here in Denver last week. Several snowy days combined with record-breaking Arctic cold weather left us in no doubt as to the change of seasons. Ahead of us lie a variety of winter holidays, both mundane and religious, of which Chokecherry's next High Day - Midwinter - is one. We hope to be moving to an indoor location for this ritual, and if we will be sorry to miss our blazing Sacred wood fire, we look forward to concentrating on the ritual itself without the discomfort which comes from standing outside in freezing weather. More on this soon - in the meantime, may we all feast in joy with out families and our remembered ancestors on Thanksgiving!
