Chalica - Growing

More candles are being light as Chalica catches on and more people are celebrating this fun, non-commercial holiday. All my resources are Creative Commons and so all I ask is that you make sure my name is on anything I have created and that you use.

It's been just over a year since I started this Chalica Blogspot and I am happy to say we have had over 5000 hits from all over the world. I really hope to hear from you out there as to how you celebrated Chalica this year. You can leave comments here or let me all know at facebook (I'm the only Klink-Zeitz) or email me at klinkzeitz@hotmail.com.
We have new songs - see the song tabs. Many of the songs have also been recorded and are at ChalicaVids on Youtube.com and others so far we just have the words. The first couple of songs used tunes from others, but now we have some new songs with original words and tunes. These three were first sung last year at Chalica services and Celebrations: Light A Chalice, by evan austin, Chalica (Infinite Light) by Daniel Flores, and The Seven Days of Chalica by Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz
Jeff Liebmann has written a wonderful new children's story: Chesna, the Chalica Chipmunk. (Any chance it will become a picture book?)  Jeff is the minister at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of MidlandLast year Jeff made videos called: Chalica Readings for each day of Chalica - they are up on youtube and embedded here on JL's videos.

Rev. Lisa Romantum Schwartz has again been busy and written her third sermon "GETS BETTER, RUDOLPH" for her third chalica service. I can't wait to hear it and will link to it as soon as it is posted on her fellowship's web site. And don't forget her children's story, The Story of Chalica. She is putting together a new story for Dec. 4th based on Edward Harris' Meditation on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer - she will be adding some "It Gets Better" ideas as inspired by Rev. Kent Saleska. She also told me she has a new song this year, but as she doesn't have a pianist for the service we will have to wait a bit more for the song.

Sophia Rose of Chalice Palace has reworked our original Chalica image see above and designed a new graphic at Zazzle for Chalica.  Check it out and don't forget to look at her other wonderful things at Chalice Palace. She also has a Chalice Palace Facebook page for you social media people. I'll be wearing a pair of her chalice earrings this week and hope to use my chalice cookie cutter to make some gingerbread cookies.
