Shadow River Farm and the Cottage Market
Day of festivities and remembrance! Eat, Dance, Laugh and be Merry this December and into 2023!
Celebrating the ancient way – outdoor, around the Solstice fire…a night, when we can consciously give birth to our dreams and intentions for the year ahead.
Children around the world know and love St. Nicholas—for he brings gifts and treats in December. He is known by different names—and even looks different from place to place. But, it is the same St. Nicholas who delights with small surprises and good things to eat. Nicholas gave in secret, alert to others’ needs, and expecting nothing for himself in return.
According to local Irish legend, Saint Nicholas is buried in County Kilkenny.
