Christmas is coming closer. One quick glance at the crowds in the streets and stores are enough to make you realise the “Silent Night” is still far away — but the preparations are undeniably everywhere. Huge Christmas trees with second-hand lighting near your local City / Town hall, decorations in the streets and cozy scenes everywhere — especially on the advertisement flyers. As with everything in the world, Christmas has been commercialized. It must be said however that there’s still plenty of the Christmas spirit left as well. Those of you who are religious will understand the meaning of this image, and there are numerous people who are doing great work by indulging themselves in charity and the like, such as the guys from the Yogscast who have already raised over £131,000 for poor people in third-world countries before Christmas has even begun.
The moral is that everyone celebrates Christmas in his or her own way. Some of us are too busy with trying to pass the ongoing semester exams, but others may already be preparing for the annual visit to grandma’s house. We at the Ardan Frontier are getting ready to celebrate Christmas as well — the Ardan Style. Some updates:
- Snow Script: It is snowing on the Ardan Frontier! It is without doubt these small pixels will warm your heart — either by the tradition they are associated with, or by the fact they may lag the PCs of some unfortunate visitors, in which case their hearts would be warmed by rage and anger.
Christmas Gallery:**Edit** Due to an unstable version and compatibility issues with this version of WordPress the gallery has been removed until further notice.
- Christmas Special: This year’s Christmas Special on its way, and the first part is scheduled for publication later this week. It will cover Christmas my way and the S4 way, with a section dedicated to the Santa Fumbi Event.The second part will be posted immediately after in the following days, due to time restraint issues. Loyal readers will be in for something very special, so get ready!
While you guys wait for the next entry I would like to share you the following Christmas story. It is a video that was posted to S4DB by Macmaxi, the “Gentleman of S4”, who was among the first to make a notion by deleting all his AP items. Turn up the sound, and listen to this moving tale by said guy. And finally a question: How does -your- Christmas look like this year? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
Until the next time,
