Merry Christmas!

Public Service Announcement: When collecting eggs for the Yulefest, beware of foxes in the henhouse.

While I’m enjoying the holiday traditions and time with my family, as well as a beautifully white Christmas and the fact that I *can*, after all, get my netbook to connect to the internet from my aunt’s house where we gather for Christmas, I am wishing for the many friends I have made here both in the game and on the blogs to have a blessed Christmas as well and take joy in the celebration of the Incarnation! What greater gift could there be? But I am also liking this quote of Tolkien’s:

“The Resurrection is the eucatastrophe of the story of the *Incarnation* — This story begins and ends in joy.”

Wassailing in the Shire

The Bounders of the Shire (or the Green Hill Music Society? I’m not sure which was responsible, but it was Falibrand either way…) put on a great Wassailing event Friday night. Folks gathered at the gate to the Shire Homesteads, then we went into various different neighbourhoods to hear some excellent bands play Yuletide tunes.

Caroling at the Prancing Pony

Last night the lovely ladies of the Tinnu uin Galadhrim of Nimrodel got together in Bree for a holiday jam session, making merry with yuletide carols that entertained a few of the passersby. I will send you to Tuiliel’s excellent writeup for more of the details; for my part, I will simply offer thanks to the random minstrel who, some time ago, drive-by mentored Linett in the skill of playing Cowbell when she was standing at a mailbox and did not even realize it was happening. Having that uncommon skill meant it was what I got to play for most of the songs. Christmas carols do sound rather merry with more cowbell. 🙂

We hope to do a repeat performance later this Yule season, especially as our dear minstrel Digger was taken ill and could not join us this time. So watch for Tinnu caroling yet to come!
