Ongoing Yule Activities During the Week
We need a Coordinator for this project. Share your favorite cookies with others and get a plate of various cookies back! Sign up in advance and understand that this might not be a great match for those with special dietary requirements.
The coordinator will receive the cookies (promising not to eat them!) and send/mail them out to the recipients. Participants will have to mail their own cookies to the coordinator, and if possible, provide a suggested donation of $5 to help with the mailing of their cookies to the recipients.
Lady Katherine has an idea for Gift Packages. Sign up with her in advance to contribute trinkets and small gifts items to be gathered and then shared with those who sign up. You will need to mail your items to Katherine, which she will then distribute to participants. There will be a suggested donation of $5, along with your items, to help cover mailing costs.
Distanced Mathom Exchange
This will be a continuation of one of our favorite Yule traditions. People who wish to participate will provide a description/photo of their mathom along with the date of their first official SCA activity. The coordinator will compile the list and make it available to the participants.
Starting with the person who has found the SCA the most recently, an item is chosen from the list. Then we continue on with the next person with the least time of involvement until everyone has a mathom. (This might be managed as an evolving email over the week with items struck from the list as choices are made.)
The challenge is how to get the mathom from the gifter to the giftee. Smallish items could be mailed between participants. Another option could be for delivery/exchange being coordinated between the two.
Other ideas are welcome – this is just a start. The more ideas we have, and the more people who volunteer to help, the better our Yule will be!
