Quote of the Week

The baby turned her attention to the tree for the first time since the decorations began going on. She gasped as she saw it in all its glory. The sheen of the ornaments drew one’s attention so that they weren’t sure which bauble was the most beautiful; at least, that’s how Saertil saw it when she was putting each one up. But, perhaps even more importantly, the entire tree glowed. Instead of a string of flickering lights, as described in the stories, Jorei’s parents had used real glow worms. Red, green, white, purple, blue . . . all ten colours were there, placed throughout the unattractive metal branches. The worms shone with such radiance that Jorei was mesmerized by the colours, their lights all synchronized in what looked like a magical light show.

Holiday Cheer in the Citadel

In the Darigan Citadel, there is holiday cheer, just as there would be throughout the rest of Neopia. Despite the gloomy atmosphere, vine-covered ground, and the occasional dust storm, every Neopian or team of Neopians has their own special way of celebrating in the floating city and beyond. Below are but a few examples of the celebrations you might see. ~~ Team Darigan Citadel and the “Yooyu Incident” ~~ After havoc broke loose at last year’s “Citadel Christmas Party,” the DC Team Players decided to keep a closer eye on the team’s apparent mascot. No other team wanted to give a holiday home to the Darigan Yooyu, who feigned sadness until he reached his destination at the festive occasion. Highlights of last year included...

"Special Delivery" by 77thbigby
The Marin family had arrived in Terror Mountain. They planned to stay through the month of Celebrating. Simon and Eliana had decided it would be a nice experience for their children. Simon had frequented the mountain in his youth and still had connections there. So here they were. They were staying with a family friend by the name of Lofty. He had lived on the mountain for years and had been thrilled to hear that the Marin family was coming for a visit. His cottage was off the beaten path, near the summit. The cottage was quaint, snow-laden with windows that shone with a friendly glow and a plume of smoke rising from the chimney. There was plenty of room to host the family...

"A Snowbunny for Emir" by crazyboutcute
It was on a whim, and nothing more, that Emir finally approached the pink Aisha crocheting Snowbunnies outside the Advent Calendar kiosk. He first noticed her on the third day of the Month of Celebrating, and he saw her every day thereafter, sitting in the same spot, keeping the same hours, crocheting the same white Snowbunnies from the same white yarn. His shop was across the way, and his workstation was across from the window, so he couldn’t help but see her there, wearing a coat but no gloves and endlessly crocheting. It was only natural, then, that his curiosity would be piqued and that he would think to offer her some respite from the unrelenting cold of...

"The Unique Month of Celebrating" by akezis
There are few things quite as pleasant as the smell of freshly baked cookies that just came out of the oven. The only other aroma that can compete with it, is that of pastries being prepared during the best time of the year: the Month of Celebrating. Despite the cold weather and the snow that indicates that winter is here and in full force, there's a special warmth added to the atmosphere, because of all the good feelings that accompany the making of these snacks. The process of putting together in a bowl eggs, sugar, butter and other ingredients, mixing them and scooping the batter into a baking sheet to be taken to the oven becomes a mandatory task at this time of the year. Though that word might...
