We have left the warmth and light of summer behind and entered the dark months of the year… Now is the time to tell ghost stories and rekindle our relationship with the werewolf and the vampire. But it is also the time to light candles and give ourselves over to the magic of Christmas.
We decorate our homes, we set our tables and present a cornucopia of delicious treats and dishes, we give and receive gifts… Every family has its own traditions when it comes to celebrate Christmas – traditions that let us connect to our childhood, and to the loved ones we have lost. We feel close to those who came before us and we celebrate the light and love they passed on, and we create new memories and new traditions to be handed down to the new generations.
Here on the Faerycourt we have only one tradition: a new theme to reflect the change of the seasons. Our Winter-theme is inspired by the world of fairytales and of times past.
I also want to take this opportunity to present two new members: Cyan, who joined us earlier this year, and Fallen Angel, who was a member on the old site and who has returned to, hopefully, add his creativity to ours.
As always I hope the Faerycourt will continue to be a place of wild imaginations and flights of fancy, of poetry and beauty both dark and light. If anything I hope we can inspire you to read and write and add your own kind of beauty to this world.
How ever you celebrate Christmas, I wish you one of magic and light.
