On a note from outer space, this Winter Solstice is a special one. It's the Great Conjunction when Jupiter and Saturn are in alignment. This hasn't happened in almost 800 years!!

Get out and see it. Right now weather reports are saying it's going to be cloudy in the Ithaca skies, but you never know which way the wind will blow.

Why is hand washing so important? Read the article below.

Waterless Hand soap
Hand washing has always been the best way to keep from getting sick. But with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks, hand washing matters more than ever.

Coronavirus spreads easily. Hand washing prevents the spread of germs, including coronavirus.

Rutabaga Curl 12/19/20

If you've never curled, this is usually a game played on ice with these tea kettle looking pucks, that you slide in an attempt to hit a target in a concentric circle court. Sort of like shuffleboard or bowling.

We, at The Ithaca Farmers Market's International Rutabaga Curl, have an agricultural twist and play with regulation rutabagas. These are grown specifically for the game. You can come as your own hand picked team, a protester, a cheerleader, a single player, a spectator.

Dress in costume, sporting attire, headdress. Whatever strikes you as appropriate for the player you wish to be. This is another occasion where masks can be fun.

We have had teams travel from the other side of the world to play and been featured on NPR's "It's only a Game"

Dress for the cold temps. This is a winter sport. Our court is in the market pavilion. I have no idea how things will play out this year, but usually there's a fire to warm your hands, and venders feature hot cider and hot chocolate, and rutabaga treats.

All ages welcome. Prizes. Lots of laughing. IFM Rutabaga Curl
