Yesterday was winter solstice — the shortest day of the year and the furthest we are tilted from the sun (unless you are in the southern hemisphere — in which case it is the longest day of the year for you). Loulou the parrot mentions this in Curse of Blackmoor Manor.
Speaking of CUR, this makes me think of the song that Jane sings with Ethel behind closed doors: Bridgette’s Ballad.
“Bridgette with her eyes so bright / Look toward heaven’s starry night…”
And now I’d like to play that game again! Gah! Also, these upcoming couple of weeks is a great time to play games that include snow… like The White Wolf of Icicle Creek, Treasure in the Royal Tower and Warnings at Waverly Academy.
Which games are best to play on your winter break? Perhaps instead of a snowy game, is there a classic game that you want to revisit for memories’ sake?
As for the weekend puzzle, you’ll need to take a look at a phone. (You count the number, then the letter found on that button.) The answer is [Beware the lighthouse].
