SIPA holds its annual Yule Celebration Saturday, Dec. 14 at Gaia House in Carbondale.    

Winter Solstice has been celebrated in cultures around the world for thousands of years. This start of the solar year is a celebration of Light and the rebirth of the Sun. In old Europe, it was known as Yule, from the Norse, Jul, meaning wheel.

This is a public event open to all ages.  Gathering starts at 6 p.m  Ritual at 7 p.m, followed by potluck.After ritual and potluck, we will hold our annual GIFT EXCHANGE! If you want to participate, please bring a wrapped gift. Give a gift you would like to receive and feel free to bring extra gifts if you can!

Yule is our winter fundraiser and second big fundraiser for the year. There are two options for monetary donations to SIPA:
1) Feed the pig 🐖
2) Yule Raffle/Silent Auction
We will be having a "bag style"/silent auction this year. Photos of items available and bidding information will be posted soon on the SIPA Event page at.
