SLPS gathered together to celebrate the Winter Solstice, known as Yule or Alban Arthuan on Saturday, December 20, 2014 at 6pm. The altar was decorated for Yule and Hanukkah, as SLPS celebrated it on the fifth night of Hanukkah. The ritual started with Yule poetry. Everyone then presented gifts and honored Cernunnos, the Oak king who was born of the Goddess and took over reign from the Holley king for the next six months. He spoke to the members and blessed them for being present at his return.

The reading of the traditional Hanukkah prayers and lighting of the candles took place. A traditional Yule log cake was the center cake, freshly bought from World Market. Bear foot pinot noir filled the glasses of the members. The feastings included gorgonzola and ham stuff chicken, funeral potatoes, and potato bacon soup.
