The Starlight Celebration is once again upon us, the festival inspired by the benevolent deeds of the Ishgardian knights of old. This year, however, the preparations underway in Gridania appear to have taken on a foreign flavor. What in the stars above could have prompted this veering away from tradition? Mayhap The Raven has caught glimpse of the answer from its vantage point on high.

Read on for the full story.

Wow, I don't know how it was possible, but I forgot about the bells... God help us all... The nightmare returns...

Ok, who knows, this might be fun, especially if we get reindeer suits.

Looks like bells, No killing rabid snowmen or a Santa escort death missions. No Xmas nightmares for the kids here.

"Let vs all ring Fancies knell.
Ile begin it.
Ding, dong, bell."
(Merchant of Venice, III.ii. 1415-18)

It worked in 1623 and it can work today; this is just an example of SE recognizing the classics.

I actually wouldn't mind the bells. They have a somewhat nostalgic feeling to them.

I also wonder if the previous christmas gear will still be available or whether its just the new reindeer suits.

I wanna be a Laladeer, or a Reinfell, or would it be Lainfeer, or Reladell? I think I just confused myself. :(

That desire is so saccharine that the country's obesity rate just rose another 4 percent.
