But for now, I thought some of you all might enjoy a bit of virtual holiday festivity with a fantastical bent. So here's a challenge for all of you, Inkies and Watchers alike:
Suppose you are throwing an end-of-the-year party, and you have all of children's fantasy literature to draw upon. You can invite any character from any fantasy book, you can hold the party anywhere from Bag End to Hogwarts, you can feast on mik-bars or Turkish delight. So tell me about your party plans!
Who are five people on your invitation list?
Where will the party be held?
What will the entertainment be?
What will you wear?
What will you eat?
I'll answer this myself in a comment, and I invite you all to do the same!
