Best wishes for the New Year to all readers! - Issue 1 1428 S.R.

Weren't they absolutely spiffing and grand again? I am talking ofcourse about Pycella's Hobbit Yule Calendar and Lina's Magical Yule Drawing! Well done and thank you for making it possible, you two! And ofcourse many thanks go to all who helped out by acting or sending in things for the Calendar. It shows that our Hobbit Community is thriving and creative.

Talking of creativity, in this time of year I must always think of our former Art director, Master Speckles Tookburrow. He made the layout of the Gazette back in the day, with the little hands golding the Gazette. He had made a special Yule Layout too with the hands in mittens. Unfortunately he has not left behind a note on how to change between these different decors. But Master Speckles, where ever you are, I hope you are doing well and we all still enjoy your art work. Thank you!

The busy days of Yuletide are behind us now and the schedule of events is a bit less filled. But there is always something being planned for you to attend and enjoy. Beside the regular events we have many...
