"Tie Down the Sun" is an old Norwegian ritual performed on the winter solstice to call for the return of light on the longest night of the year. It is a nondenominational celebration of the power of community and the cycles of life.

This year's theme: Embracing New (old?) Ways: Permaculture, subsistence, reducing carbon footprints, high-integrity food, low-impact lifestyles, etc., will be held at 6:30 p.m. sharp Friday, Dec. 21, fireside at the Unitarian Universalist Society House, N8010 Highway 65, in River Falls. The Society House will be open at 6 p.m. A potluck will be held afterwards with hors d'oeuvres and desserts.

Those attending are asked to bring a ball (not a skein) of natural-fiber yarn for each person; songs, stories, poems, and readings appropriate to the theme and season; and a potluck item for social time afterwards. Dress in warm layers for 45 minutes outside.

Call Jera at 715-220-7783 for more information.
