Winter, that is, as of 5:23 EST today. This year’s Winter Solstice boasts a full Moon (known as the Cold Moon or Long Night’s Moon) as well as the Ursid meteor shower.
I hope you have enjoyed this shortest of days in the Northern Hemisphere, and look forward to the ever-increasing hours of sunlight to come.
“Well done, everyone! We’re half-way out of the dark.” – from A Christmas Carol, Doctor Who version.
Busy cooking–no time–here’s a pic:
More details on the party, as we have added auction items, including:
Doctor Who DVD Series 7, part 1
Doctor Who tote bag
Doctor Who Christmas Ornaments – 11th Doctor and Sonic Screwdriver
Join us for Doctor Who viewing, trivia, games, chat, food, etc. There will be a book/magazine/comics sale as well as the auction. Stop by for an hour, or the weekend (activities generally spill over into Sunday), and be sure to get your photo in the classic TARDIS Console room with Daleks and the Delegate from Alpha Centauri, or in front of the Exploding TARDIS, or the Clara Memorial TARDIS (add your own grafitti)!
Just a few words tonight, as I am still busy party planning, although I did take some time to read the latest Gallifrey Guardian newsletter (great job, Editor Bob!). And a quick visit to the Guardians’ website gave me a chance to peruse GoG’s Wholiday Pages–our version of an Advent Calendar (thanks, Webmaster Arthur!).
If you want to know what to expect from a Guardian Wholiday Party, check out my posts from December of 2017. You will see puzzles and crafts, games, themed cakes, auction items, costumes and props for photo ops, and more. Want your picture in front of the exploding TARDIS? Drop by!
We also have a trivia contest, play party games, and smash a piñata. New crafts are added often, including this coloring page of a character from a previous Doctor Who Christmas episode.
Apologies, for not getting back to you in November, but my busy work season was extended due to a December 4 run-off.
This week will be all about prepping for the Guardians of Gallifrey’s annual Wholiday Party, which is much like our June Anniversary Party (see June 1st post), but with the addition of our elections, an auction, and a piñata!
If you have suggestions for a theme (besides Doctor Who and the Holiday, that is), please send them. I usually have an idea for the cake and piñata by now, but having just caught up with this season (told you I was working), inspiration has yet to strike.
