May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night and a smooth road all the way to your door.
— Old Irish Blessing
Ancient Celts celebrated the coming of the full moon for thousands of years, they believed the full Moon held powers of greater force then gravity, the powers of a Goddess. They thought every full moon as an embodiment of this Goddess and they honored it with the passion one should expect from a believing people. They named each full moon to tell their people when to act in a certain way. The Hunter's Moon told them to send out their hunters to gather food for the coming winter, but in the middle of the Winter they tell you of change, they tell you of the Long Nights ahead. Prepare to join in with the celebrations surrounding the Moon of the Long Nights!

The Moon likes to see the her celebration performed by the well dressed and the original, this is where the Costume Contest comes in. We will reward three people who stand out in a certain category. These categories are:
- The most fitting outfit for the event (some hints here: remember that the event's theme is a new beginning and the event's color is white)
- The most good looking outfit (I think no explanation is needed here)
- A memory we'd rather leave behind (a dress made entirely from meat is nothing compared to the horrible disfunctions of style that will be seen in this category)
So wear a lovely (or horrible) outfit to the celebration, as the prizes for each will be worth some effort.
- Spirits Of Sin - our photoshop guy
- GW-EN - for providing radio support!
