Winter Festivities

Winter Sun

To all players of Only a Game, wishing you a happy Winter Festival of your choice! Tonight I shall be driving south three hundred miles in a vicious storm in order to visit my family – hopefully the ferry to the Isle of Wight will still be sailing when we get to Portsmouth!

May your absurd festive activities bring you what you wish and we’ll speak again in the Gregorian New Year. Wishing you all (delete as applicable) a Happy Milad-un-Nabi, Serene Buddhist New Year, Happy Hannukah, Merry Yalda, Auspicious Makara Sankranti, Merry Christmas, Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Solstice, not to mention blessings upon the followers of Bahá'u'lláh, and felicitations on the birth of the tenth Nanak. If you’re not celebrating any of these, then Happy Swik!

The Game will resume in January.
