Greetings Everyone,

A Joyous Yule Season to everyone!

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for December, describing what 
is new in the Florilegium this month.

There are a number of Yule oriented files in the Florilegium that also 
may be of interest to folks. Some of these are files containing SCA 
oriented gift suggestions, while others detail various medieval Yule 
traditions. Wassail or a caudle, anyone?

If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get on my list to 
receive this article several weeks in advance in order to allow you 
time to meet your publication deadlines, please email me.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past fourteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been 
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail 
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make 
this information available to others, I have placed this information in 
a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article 
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me 
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for more details.

I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping 
me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials, 
editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more
