Illusen Day: Telling History Through Food

It’s Illusen Day! Time to celebrate one of Neopia’s most loved Earth faeries: Illusen. She is more than just someone to visit in Meridell to give your Pets quests. She is a selfless kind-hearted soul that has helped Meridell during war, a respite for those in times of great despair, and offers Neopoints to those she finds randomly walking around! Oftentimes enough, we ourselves as well as our Neopets sometimes forget the lessons and stories of our most beloved figures of history. And to be fair, sometimes it’s not an easy feat to teach when more fun things are around like the Roo Island Merry Go Round, Tiki Tours or concerts at the Tyrannian Concert Hall. Though, it is sometimes easier to have conversations over food! Many families have passed down beloved stories over preparing, serving and enjoying foods with loved ones, so that’s where we are going to start today: helping you teach about Illusen with themed foods! Feel free to pick up these already prepared items at local Neopian food stores or ask around for recipes in any Neopia cookbook! 1. Iced Illusen Tea This refreshing drink is as cool as a forest breeze. The magical vines around the drink would be a perfect way to discuss how Earth faeries work their magic over the lands. 2. Illusen Negg A negg that is always fresh, regardless of how long you’ve had it! Perfect for buying and store if your Neopet doesn’t really seem interested in learning about Illusen Day today, or tomorrow. Maybe next year! It’ll still be fresh! 3. Illusen Smoothie Not everyone can sit down for a long meal, as we are often quite busy Neopians! So much to do and so much to see, this smoothie with Illusen vibes is perfect to snack on the go and have a...

Another Faerie Festival
Illusen would admit she was a tad surprised when she saw the letter in her mailbox. Pressed in a clean black envelope and sealed with gaudy purple and green wax stamped into a Bartamus.
