Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

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.
