If you wish to volunteer to host an event for the Festival of the Hearth, please state your interest if you'd be up for hosting one of these events! A lot of these are new traditions we're going to be implementing for this festival, so if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to ask here, or pm me or myst!
lighting the bonfire, hosted by Spiritline
The bonfire is lit at the beginning of the month, and is kept going all throughout the month, while being watched over by firewatchers to ensure that it doesn't die out. When it's first lit, snacks such as marshmallows are roasted to be shared amongst friends, along with other activities.
candle making, hosted by Vale
Participants are set up with a bucket of melted wax, dyes, herbs, scented oils, and a few wicks to make candles for loved ones, made with scents and colors that they feel that they would associate with the people that they plan on gifting them to. Later on, after all the candles have dried, they're given out to the people that they were made for in a separate thread to show appreciation for them.
aurora borealis, hosted by Gabriel
The aurora borealis is a new phenomenon that occurs over Hyperia's skies, similar to the aurora borealis that occurs in the Arctic Circle in real life. Due to the mana in the air fluctuating, those in Hyperia are able to observe the lights only during the month of December. If you've got any questions, feel free to pm either me or myst.
feast, hosted by Athanasius
At the end of the month, a feast is held with Hyperia and it's allies to celebrate a year of memories made, and another year of memories to come. With this, after the feast is over, the bonfire is finally allowed to die out.
