The Jackson Ranch in the Heart of San Antonio 78230

2 Days of Fun, History, Knights, Archery, Food Booths, Vendors, Shakespeare, Artisans, Live Music, Pop-Up Shops   
Costume and Best Booth Decoration Contests 
Sing along with Traditional Seasonal Tunes 
Join in the Yule Log Ceremony 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* >* The Yule Log was a popular event during the Christmas season. During the holiday, a large log would burn in the center of the town square or hall. The fire represented the new life of the new year. And the burning log represented leaving behind the negativity of the past year. We invite you to write the negativity you wish to leave behind, and toss it in the fire!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Current Artists featured in the Ranch Gallery: Franco Mondini-Ruiz, David Zamora Casas, Maureen-Momo-Brown, Charles Pompa, Ray Chavez, Armando Sanchez, Katherine Brown, Patrice Villastrigo, Kathrine DaLuz Maple, Pat Jiminez, Janice Joplin, Krisanne Frost, Victoria Zapata Klein, Robert Wurzbach, Isaac Shojai, Hans Kappertz, Albert Dohlmans, Juanita Chipman

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* >* The celebrations of the Medieval winter season are a combination of traditions from Pagan, Jewish, and Christian history. From the Norse with celebration of Yule, to the Celts celebration of the Winter Solstice, to Jewish Hanukkah and finally Christian Christmas, it's nearly impossible to determine  who did what first. It has been said that it began with the Italian Mithric celebrations around December 25th. Which is why Constantine decreed this date as suitable for the birth of Christ. Within the Jackson Ranch Renaissance Christmas Festival, you will find an amalgam of traditions dedicated to this special time of year    
* >* Read more about Medieval Christmas traditions here:   http://www.medievalists.net/2012/12/seven-medieval-christmas-traditions/ 

 

        * >*            Did you know..

Connections are often touted between Santa Claus and the Norse God Odin…centered around the coincidence of eight reindeer and the eight legs of Odin’s Magical Horse! 

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We all love our pets.   However, we prefer that you do not bring pets. But, if you must, PLEASE make sure to keep them on a leash (it is actually the law!)  Mishaps have occurred in the past when people carried, rather than leashed, their dogs onto the ranch grounds. One lady was bitten (by a small dog that, "has never done this before and is always calm!")  Further, please DO NOT take them indoors! Thank you so much

We all love our pets.   However, we prefer that you do not bring pets. But, if you must, PLEASE make sure to keep them on a leash (it is actually the law!)  Mishaps have occurred in the past when people carried, rather than leashed, their dogs onto the ranch grounds. One lady was bitten (by a small dog that, "has never done this before and is always calm!")  Further, please DO NOT take them indoors! Thank you so much

Join in the Yule Log Ceremony 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* >* The Yule Log was a popular event during the Christmas season. During the holiday, a large log would burn in the center of the town square or hall. The fire represented the new life of the new year. And the burning log represented leaving behind the negativity of the past year. We invite you to write the negativity you wish to leave behind, and toss it in the fire!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Current Artists featured in the Ranch Gallery: Franco Mondini-Ruiz, David Zamora Casas, Maureen-Momo-Brown, Charles Pompa, Ray Chavez, Armando Sanchez, Katherine Brown, Patrice Villastrigo, Kathrine DaLuz Maple, Pat Jiminez, Janice Joplin, Krisanne Frost, Victoria Zapata Klein, Robert Wurzbach, Isaac Shojai, Hans Kappertz, Albert Dohlmans, Juanita Chipman

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* >* The celebrations of the Medieval winter season are a combination of traditions from Pagan, Jewish, and Christian history. From the Norse with celebration of Yule, to the Celts celebration of the Winter Solstice, to Jewish Hanukkah and finally Christian Christmas, it's nearly impossible to determine  who did what first. It has been said that it began with the Italian Mithric celebrations around December 25th. Which is why Constantine decreed this date as suitable for the birth of Christ. Within the Jackson Ranch Renaissance Christmas Festival, you will find an amalgam of traditions dedicated to this special time of year
