It’s December and the castle is as busy as ever! Mind those everlasting icicles. As well as the Gryffindor and Slytherin newspapers being open for submissions (see the reply above this one for details), there are several more point earning opportunities to cuddle up in front of the Common Room fire with.
The Library has 2 fresh projects! This time you’re invited to write stories of wild weather and delicious dishes. There’s a maximum of 30 points up for grabs so head on over there quick.
Deadline: 31st December
Who doesn’t love presents? This year, the return of the Secret Elf Present Exchange over on the main forum gives you the chance to give and get gifts this December. Whether you’re after a new signature or just want to give someone the warm and fuzzies, this activity is a perfect way to pass the winter. There are also 30 points on offer for being a good elf so really, this is a win win win situation. Get in there fast with your wish list though if you want to sign up.
Deadline for signups: 9th December
Deadline to deliver gifts: 31st December
There are also heart-warming wintery activities in all the Common Rooms this month. While they won’t earn you house points, you should still be sure to stop by the Sett for a Hogwartian Christmas, the Dungeons for the Silver Snake Gift Exchange and I believe Ravenclaw are looking for assistance in dealing with some very sinister snowmen. Of course, you could just stay right here and stuff yourself with sweet treats in our Chocolate Factory activity, that’s also an excellent idea.
Whatever and however you’re celebrating, happy holidays, lions!
