2018 Great Winter Light Up

Nostalgia Corner

It's December, which means many of us are really getting into the holiday spirit (though I was ready the day after Halloween). This means it's time for the Great Winter Light Up!

The light up is a very important tradition. It's right before winter hits the mainland and it's about lighting the Winter Woods so the winter fairies could finish their seasonal preparations at night. Now, here's the usual event timeline.

The event wasn't that much in 2008. All there was is this never news post saying that Iridessa lost her fireflies and it encouraged fairies to play Firefly Light Up. Iridessa met up with fairies near the game entrance.

The event was official in 2009. There were the beautiful lanterns in the Winter Woods. The music was muted so you could hear the sound of winter fairies working. There was a badge for playing Fairy Fireworks.

In 2010, the event was during the eight days of Hannukah. You'd earn a badge for achieving at least 25,000 p…

2018 Fairy Feast

I'm literally listening to Cooking by the Book while writing this.

Any way, while we're all busy preparing Thanksgiving dinner (if you live in the US), try to take time to read this Snowflake's Pixie Hollow Events issue.

Nostalgia Corner

The Pixie Hollow version of Thanksgiving began back in late November 2008. Back then, it was called the Autumn Jubilee. In 2008, players could donate ingredients and earn badges for that. Fairies were encouraged to play Harvest Hustle and donate ingredients to fill the cornucopia in the Pumpkin Patch. Throughout the event, the cornucopia would fill up more and more. There was a badge for donating ingredients and an honors badge for the top Harvest Hustle scorers.

The event was renamed the Fairy Feast in 2009. There would be a Fawn quest about filling the cornucopia and the cornucopia would also fill up. Acorn Summit would also be decorated (and it was AMAZING).

2010's feast received a major upgrade.  The Fawn quest would be before the e…

2018 Autumn Revelry

Image
Seasonal Scoop

Last year, the blue moon rose over Pixie Hollow. You may be wondering why there's going to be a revelry when there's no blue moon this year. Well, there is a revelry every year at the end of autumn, it's just that they don't all have the blue moon. The revelry is a time to celebrate the end of autumn in a carnival-like event. What do you think the revelry should have?


Pixie Craft

November is a time to be thankful. This is a craft I found out about on Youtube. It's a Thankful Tree. Here's what you need:
Something to plant your tree in (it can be a can, cup or a jar)Tissue paper (optional)Foam cylinderAbout four long branchesConstruction paperScissorsDouble sided tape And here's how to make the tree:

If you feel like your jar or cup thingy is too plain like I did, decorate it. I decorated mine by using Mod Podge to wrap orange tissue paper around it. Put the foam cylinder in the cup thingy (if your foam doesn't fit, you can shrink it with a sh…

2018 Animal Masquerade

Image
Hello, hello fairies and sparrow men! From now on, I'll be arranging the sections of my normal blog posts into different columns (sort of like the pixie postings but exclusively for events).

This week and for the rest of October, we'll be celebrating one of my favorite Pixie Hollow events; the Animal Masquerade!

Nostalgia Corner

The Animal Masquerade was the first ever Pixie Hollow event that became a tradition, and it began in October 2008. It introduced the new meadow; Acorn Summit. It was a hidden meadow during the event, but there were instructions on how to find it in the Never News. This event also introduced Summit Style which had animal masks. Acorn Summit was decorated with animal decor, and you can collect a pair of Raspberry Red chipmunk ears. You'd even earn a badge for wearing any mask or ears during the event.

2009 was similar to 2008, only instead of red chipmunk ears, they were Soft Orange. Animal costumes were sold in addition to masks. The masks were both…

2018 Berry Harvest Festival

Fly with you y'all! How are you all doing? I'm so excited that it's fall! And do you know what that means? It's harvest time!

The Berry Harvest Festival was only held in 2008 and it was actually Pixie Hollow's first ever event. This festival is an autumn tradition all about gathering berries used to make dyes and feed the animals. Hopefully Dulcie will use it to make delicious treats! You'd even earn a badge for gathering ten raspberries or blueberries. You'd even get a pair of free shoes if you log on.

A fun activity for this festival is to dress your fairy in berry colored clothing. Another fun idea is to play Harvest Hustle on FairyABC (there are berries in that game).

Fall is also about harvesting things other than berries like apples and pumpkins (all for delicious fall treats!) I especially love apple pie and pumpkin muffins. Hopefully Pixie Hollow's berry treats will be ready for the Fairy Feast!


Now, before I sign off, here's a fall badge. …

Purple Moon Festival 2018

Image
It's time; time for the Purple Moon Festival! If you don't know what this is, it's an event I created based on an actual Pixie Hollow event that was mentioned back in 2013.

The purple moon rises every year, usually in the summer or fall. This special celebration varies depending on the area celebrated though. During this festival, a red moon rises. Then an orange moon, than yellow, than green, than teal, than blue, than it turns purple in midnight.

This celebration represents friendship. The purple moon actually represents the equivalent of homecoming in many magic schools. Dances are usually held in and out of these schools and many wear purple for these outfits.

A fun idea for this week is to write a story about the Purple Moon.

I'd imagine that this badge would be earned from completing the quest:


Autumn Equinox 2018

Image
Fly with you fairies! Saturday was the Autumn Equinox which is basically when the day and night are each twelve hours. This day made me so excited because autumn is my favorite season. Not only is this season really beautiful, it's a very exciting time of year. There are really fun holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. Not to mention that we're closer to Christmas!

And as I always do in my blog post, I'll recap how Pixie Hollow has celebrated the beginning of autumn over the years.

2009-There wasn't really that much. There were cakes in the pumpkin patch to congratulate everyone on a good job for changing the leaves for like, two days. But the cakes were really, really cute.

2010-The equinox this year overlapped with the Welcome Home Party (an event celebrating the new Great Fairy Rescue movie).

2011-The ballroom was beautifully decorated and there were banners in each of the autumn meadows

2012-The autumn equinox was actually a big event this year. Not only were t…
