Quote of the Week


The best way to spread holiday cheer is by reaching out to others. When I say others, I don’t just mean your two best neofriends, the head of your guild, and that guy who is auctioning off the Plushie Paint Brush that you’re dying to have.


Snowager Teasing 101



The first way you can annoy the Snowager is by gluing his treasure to the ceiling. I know this because I saw a bunch of meepits do it. (Notice it’s always the meepits who do stuff...and then humans repeat what they did.) When he's asleep, take all of his stuff, and painstakingly glue it to the ceiling one by one...

Sighting Santa



Almost as important as presents at Christmastime is the pet that brings them--Santa! Every pet, at some point in their life, dreams of catching St. Nick in the act at midnight on Christmas Eve.

"A Christmas Gift" by silent_snow
Archie, shopkeeper and owner of Wintery Petpets, didn't particularly want to sweep up the shop that day.

Once Upon a Christmas Morning
