Why do folk all across Europe dress as animal people, mythical beings, Faery creatures and scary monsters during festivals that take place in winter? Festivals involving guising, fire and light have been a part of seasonal celebrations across Europe throughout recorded history.  Beyond Europe, similar winter celebrations are found across Asia and the Americas so just how far back do they go and what do they signify? And beyond that, what can we, as modern Pagans and Druids, learn from these ancestral celebrations that we can bring into our lives today, infusing them with a renewed sense of magic, wonder and healing energy?

All these things and more, explored in the heart of the ancestral temple of Avebury with Greywolf, a.k.a. Philip Shallcrass, chief of the British Druid Order.
