You’re invited to send items to burn in the Tieton New Year’s Bonfire!
There are some reasons for hope, cheer, and good fortune, so let’s welcome 2009 with good wishes, tidings, and blessings. Marquand Books and Mighty Tieton will mark the transition from messy old 2008 to bright and shiny 2009 with a bonfire in Tieton, Washington, on New Year’s Eve.
We invite family, friends, associates, clients, colleagues, and neighbors to participate by mailing symbolic paper or wood items for us to toss onto the flames for you.
Letters, paper dolls, photos, charms, sketches, carvings, notes, diary entries, effigies, bad poems, good poems, greeting cards, little voodoo dolls, mortgage papers, financial reports, parking tickets, expired coupons, report cards, foreclosure notices, IRA statements, campaign literature, rejection letters, love notes, résumés, collages, whatever. Any symbols that will bring better fortune for 2009.
Here’s how it works:
Gather up your items. Package in a neat envelope or bundle, and seal it tight. (We won’t open anything unless instructed to.) Mark your bundle “2008″ if you would like it tossed on the flames before the end of the year, or “2009″ if you want it tossed on once the new year has begun. Add instructions if special incantations are required. No books or musical instruments, please.
