Zafara Day Expectations

by flame_puppy

co-authored by Woniah the Zafara

With the approaching Zafara Day close at hand, thousands of Zafara owners are flocking with anticipation to Neopia Central to take part in the Zafara Day celebrations. To Zafara owners around Neopia, this Zafara day of Y4 not only marks the anniversary of the birth of their beloved pet species, but also signifies a long awaited change in the world of Neopia--recognition for the underestimated, overlooked NeoPet, the Zafara.

I believe that I speak for all Zafara owners, young and old, when I say that the Zafara has nowhere near as much recognition or respect as the more favoured pets. Lupes, one of the more popular NeoPets, star in games such as NeoQuest and Ice Caves. They dominate the roll playing boards and have held many important positions in Neopia's past (King Coltzan, for example.) And what about the Aishas, Pteris, and Wockys of Neopia? Even the former winner of the Wooden Spoon award, the Lenny, stars in several games and owns stores such as the Book Store in Neopia Central. Pets both more popular and less popular than the Zafara are given massive amounts of attention, and the poor Zafara is shoved into the dark corners of Neopia, remaining secret.


We need a good home, please!

It is for this reason that I, flame_puppy, am greatly anticipating the arrival of Zafara day, on the 3rd of the month of Awakening. When will the Zafara finally be portrayed as the adventurous, energetic, and highly intelligent NeoPet that it is? The newly released Zafara battle dome items are a start, but what about shopkeepers? Or updates on the Zafara template page, showing it's flashy, new updated look? Or maybe some games, or chocolates made in its honour? Year 4 promises to be a good year for all NeoPets, and hopefully there's enough of the goodness to get around to the overlooked residents of Neopia, the Zafaras.

This is flame_puppy and Woniah, signing off. Look forward to future articles involving the Zafara movement, including "the making of the Zafara", an article on the Zafara's unique adaptations and evolution.
