Just a short one - Issue 12 1426 S.R.

Dear Readers,

We at the Bramblebury Gazette, hope you've had wonderful Yuledays, in spite of certain troubles you may have experienced in your life lately. Keeping the Green Dragon open all day on ForeYule and Yule was grand and we thank Barmy, but especially his waitress Pycella for this. Thank you very much for your efforts, Miss Pycella! Pycella has been active for us in another way too: she brought us the Hobbity Yule Calendar, with a little help form many who sent in their recepies, cards, pictures and what not! Another  honourable mention goes to Lina who brought us another fine Yule Movi(ng picture), also with the aid of many actors from our community.

Hobbit Yule would not have been the same without these two features and I am already looking forward to the next installments! But.. curb your enthusiasm: that will not be for another year.

Enjoy the remainder of this year and keep reading the Gazette in the New Year too! Just send in your article to the Gazette's Quickpost address editors[*]brambleburygazette.com and put the right character where it says [*]. You know what I mean.
