Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Solstice Festival Returns!
Carnival Set to Revisit Hogsmeade

The Hogsmeade Village Council has confirmed rumours that the Summer Solstice Festival will be returning to Padmore Park once again this summer, slated for a June 19th opening.

The festival was last in place in the summer of 1884, bringing with it a plague that decimated the population of magical Britain and was indirectly responsible for the fires that scorched the village of Hogmseade for days. Festival organizers insist that will not be the case this year, and have cited a number of precautions to ensure as much.

"We will be keeping all carnival workers under a fortnight's quarentine in advance of their opening," says a representative for Hogsmeade Hospital, "to ensure there is no repeat of last time."

In addition, a medical tent will be set up near the carnival's entrance to tend to any visitors feeling at all poorly.

On top of not dying a swift, uncomfortable death, festival patrons can look forward to animal shows, acrobatics, fireworks, games, fortune telling, and, after dark, some more mature pursuits.
