I just wanted to post a quick comment to say: I haven't seen anything like this in some time. What am I talking about??? I'm talking about how everyone put all their differences aside for the holiday season and enjoyed themselves. I have attended most of the festivities and watched as everyone got together to have fun and enjoy everyone's company. I saw a large gathering at the tree lighting ceremony, in which I must say, it was a beautiful tree and you could tell alot of work went into it. Congrats Gareth. I also watched as everyone went to Fel to attend Aryslan's Christmas celebration. I was amazed how much fun everyone had and how they were enjoying themselves so much. To me, that's what this game is all about. Thats why my wife and I joined it. Put all differences aside and enjoy what was meant to be. (to be with all walks of life and have fun together). I've really enjoyed his Holiday season with UO and all the friends on Chessy. So my wife and I, Larry & Lisa (Mayor Zanku & Caroline), would like to wish everyone and all "A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR. May the New Year be Better then last.
