SPECIAL HOLIDAY SESSION
Today we take a break from our regular book (Circle of Song) in favor of holiday preparation and some silliness! Students also get to help develop the two new “Bonfire Booklets” by testing out some songs from existing lyric books or bringing their own suggestions.
Review the Dec 21 Schedule and rehearse each highlighted song twice along the way.

Make selections for our new Yule Bardic Circle booklets. There will be two of them. One is for the 9 PM session and one is for the 1 AM session.

- More possible inspiration?
- You can also email email@example.com if you have a song, poem, or reading to suggest that is in keeping with the season.
- Does anyone need a repeat on any song?
- Next practice is on Dec 15 at Craft Circle. Anyone welcome to help sing the chorus on the two kick off songs. Learn it at home or pop by in person!
