Latkes, Candles & Gingerbread | Live Webinar Fundraiser with Starhawk @ Earth Activists Online
Dec 9 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

As we head towards the darkest time of the year, it is the time for storytelling, getting cozy, lighting of candles, baking and frying! There is a reason we come back to holiday traditions over the years. Eid, Hanukah, or Chanukah, Kwanza, Christmas, Pagan Yule all celebrate with light, fire and symbols of renewal. These smells and tastes are ingrained in our DNA and bring in the energy of the hearth.

Gather in the kitchen with Starhawk and Carin McKay for this special Earth Activist Training cook-a-long community event.

Chef Carin will lead us in Culinary Magic while Starhawk inspires with regenerative storytelling at the kitchen counter. Festive recipes featuring Starhawk’s family Latkes and Carin’s family gingerbread~ Yum!

*The evening will conclude with a very special candle lighting ritual.

To Bring:

Registrants will all receive a recipe and a complete list of ingredients and preparations to make so you can cook along with us! In addition, have a Hanukah Menorah (if you have one) or a candle holder and 9 small candles.

If you can’t find Hanukah candles, birthday candles will do!

~~~

Come warm your hearts & bellies as we gather in virtual celebration and community! Now is the time for the illumination of our spirits as we bring forth the future of our dreams~
