Would you like to be part of a beginner friendly “pop up” Pagan Choir for Yule? Mystic Grove and friends are going to perform 3 songs at the December Black Cat Cafe Open Mic Nite on Dec 14, 2018.

You can learn them at home and/or come learn them with us!  Practices are Sundays after church in Room 1 unless otherwise indicated. Show up Dec 14 in Gore Hall at 7 PM for a quick practice and then perform.  Wear your Mystic Grove shirt, 1U shirt, or a plain blue shirt with whatever santa hat or other pagan head wear you might like to put on on performance day.

We will also be decorating the Yule Log that day. 

This year the Winter Solstice Service is Friday, Dec 21 at 7 PM in the Sanctuary. The All Nite Yule Vigil goes from 9 PM to 7 AM the next day!

You can come for all the December fun or just the bits you like best.

Songs

Here is the PDF of lyrics you can print — Dec 14 Pop Up Pagan Choir Lyrics.

A lead sheet for any pop-up musicians coming soon!

Dancin’ in a Wiccan Wonderland (Karina Skye, Lyrics by Alexander and Archer)

Pagans sing, are you listenin’
Altar’s set, candles glisten
It’s a Magickal night we’re having tonight
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland

Blades held high, censer smoking
God and Goddess we’re invoking
Through Elements Five we celebrate life
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland

In a Circle we can light a Yule Fire
And await the rising of the Sun
It’s the Great Wheel turning for the new year
Loaded with abundance and great fun

Queen of Heaven is in Her place
Triple Goddess now the Crone face
Above and below, She’s the Goddess we know
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland

(pause)

Later on by the fire
Cone of power
Getting, getting higher
It’s a magical night we’re having tonight
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland

Drumming,
Cauldron stirring
While the fire’s burning
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland

Jingle Bells, Cast Your Spells (Karina Skye)

CHORUS

Jingle bells, cast your spells
Make the whole world gay
Oh how fun is is to fly
on broomstick with the fae

Jingle bells, cast your spells
Make the whole world gay
Oh how fun is is to fly
on broomstick with the fae

Flying through the snow on broomstick with the fae
With our wands we go, casting all the way
The spells out loud we sing, to make our spirits bright
What fun it is to fly and make
the whole World smile tonight

Oh…

CHORUS

Oh how fun is is to fly
on broomstick with the fae…

Oh how fun is is to fly
on broomstick with the fae…

One day or two ago
I thought I’d work this night
and soon Miss Fairy Bright
was flying by my side

The World was sad and down
Misfortune all around
We mix Love and Compassion dust
to spread all over town

Oh…

CHORUS

Now the World is Bright
Every one Old and Young
Boys and Girls tonight
Will sing this spell in song

Just get a child to smile
Mix in a sunny day
Stirring for a while
put your love in all the way
And…

CHORUS

Santa Claus is Pagan Too (Emerald Rose)

Oh, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

He’s got that Buddha belly
And his Pops the Holly King
You’ve dressed him in that British Coat
The caps a Nordic thing

You took the horns right off his head
And stuck them on his deer
But he still flies high like Jupiter
With a belly full of beer

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

Now history says Christ was likely
Not a Capricorn
But if you want to share our Yule
We don’t care when he’s born

Come celebrate the dawning
Of the sun king’s bright rebirth
And if you practice what you preach
We’ll all have peace on earth

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

Now, Santa’s way more jolly
Than some Christians would require
And if he weren’t so busy
He’d be dancing ’round this fire

Yeah, you can call it Christmas
You’ve got us way outgunned
But just you wait ’til Beltaine
Then we’ll see who’s havin’ fun!

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan… TOO!
