Here We Come a Wassailing

I recently moved into an intentional community--meaning roommates who attempt to spend quality time together a few times a month--and are hoping to spend time meeting our neighbors and knowing more about our amazing walkable neighborhood.

As a bunch of late-20 somethings we are hoping to spread some Winter cheer this December--attempting to be inclusive of the diverse traditions and customs that exist in our area, we want to host a Wassail party!

We think and hope that wassail is an inclusive festive delight. 

I plan to utilize this class with the opportunity to create invitations to our winter block party in NE Ohio #snowbelt.
