    December of 1887

    This month, the full moon will be on Saturday, December 30th. Those who play/plot with werewolves should plan accordingly.



    What: The Pettigrew Annual Quidditch Industry Party
    Who: Thom to host; see invitees here
    Where: the Lancashire Estate
    Why: Christmas & schmoozing
    When: 9th December
    Forum: Yes please!

    In addition to the normal dance floor shenanigans, there will be two or three opportunities to test out "tabletop Quidditch" - think like a magical version of ping pong where you control all three chasers to bat the Quaffle in while avoiding bludgers. There will be mistletoe-laden snitches darting around again because that seemed to go over well last year. There's a large Christmas tree in one corner under which all professional players can find small gifts (more like party favors; think quaffle-shaped truffles or licorice broomsticks or something). Enchanted fake 'snow' falls throughout the room but disappears before hitting the ground. Otherwise, standard Christmas decoration/food/drink.

    For more info or questions go hit up the plot thread!





    What: Christmas Dance
    Who: This event is for LOWER CLASS characters who are able to be in Hogsmeade. 15+
    Where: Hogsmeade Hall
    Why: Christmas feat. Festivities for LC
    When: December 21st, evening
    Forum: Si

    An evening of dancing and festive beverages awaits those who are given a much-deserved break from the rigors of daily life. A Christmas tree and small band rest in one corner of the hall, with a dance floor in the centre and tables around the edges. The Charmers' Guild has kindly provided weather charms to make it appear as though it is snowing, though as at Hogwarts, the flakes disappear before they touch anyone. Watch out for nargles in the bundle of mistletoe, which will be flitting about the room targeting people it thinks aren't having enough fun!

    Who: Ophelia to host, see below for invites!
    Where: Dippet home in London

    Seating Arrangements as follows:

    @Ophelia Dippet@Roberto Devine

    @Philip Calendar@Wesley Cavanaugh
    @Adella Calendar@Frederick Humphrey-Mavis
    -*@Eva Sleptova
    @Armando Dippet@Porphyria Dempsey
    * Endymion Dempsey, unless someone has a currently played character who you want to be there who would make sense as an invitee.

    Gwen is referred to as Countess of Adinbury by others, but as Lady Adinbury when you are speaking to her

    Where: Lunarbridge.
    Why: It's Christmas bitches.
    When: They can be there from the 23rd December-1st Jan. After than Helena is booting them out.

    Annual Christmas and New Year gathering up in sunny Scotland. Helena, and John, are inviting @Edward Macmillan @Charles Macmillan and Nimue, @Elmer Macmillan, @Killian Macmillan, @Emma Macmillan, @Atalanta Pendergast, @Minnie Pendergast and Sam and Walter, @His Majesty Merlin Huxley is welcome because Helena is amused by him, @Katherina Selwyn and family if she isn't otherwise occupied and @Ellory Pendergast is always welcome to come up just to say hello for a day or two if she pleases! Other Pendergast cousins are also invited but we have never threaded them properly so I understand if you've decided they're ambivalent about auntie Helena :P
