First off, may I wish everyone Happy Holidays to everyone from the wizarding world to the real world! 'Tis the season to bundle up, catch up on some Wizard, and spend some time with family. I've gotten the time to celebrate the holidays with my good friend Mary Dreamshade at her Myth House.
When Kingsisle literally puts a Philosoraptor meme into their game.
Much of Wizard101 has changed since I last played, regarding shadow pips, crafting, fishing, Mirage... It's a lot to take in. But ranging from dank memes of the Bee Movie, Harambe, Arthur Fist, caveman spongebob to the 2016 Presidential Election, from scandalous events at the Olympics to the worldwide release of Pokemon Go, and from the untimely passing aways to the split of Brangelina, 2016 was a lot to take in, too. Though one must understand this is what life is all about: events ever-changing through human and non-human forces. It is up to us to do something good of what is left.
So whether you're soloing or questing with friends, training your pets, or even playing wizard musical instruments, know that we should continue championing through our rather busy lives and that there is always good in the Spiral.
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
