Welcome Home Origens

Rumors have it that the “Welcome Home” greeting originated with the Yea God Family who had a commune near Ithaca NY even before the first Rainbow Gathering occurred in 1972.

There was a painted sign on the road into the commune which proclaimed “Welcome Home!” Many of the Yea God Family attended the very first rainbow gathering and had brought food, as well as their bliss-filled friendliness and they greeted everyone they met with “Welcome Home!” which, of course, became widely accepted as the universal greeting at Gatherings ever since.
