Hollygiving

The snow is falling and the candles in homes are lit. There's magic and yule spirit in the air!


The Story of Hollygiving

Bepotelkh may give out bundles of holly leaves and berries to other beps they think deserve them for doing a good deed or even just brightening their day some time in the last year. This is done in the name of the mysterious Spirit of Yule, an indescribable creature or force that embodies the magic of Yule and encourages reflection and new beginnings. It's said that the Spirit chooses some lucky beps each year on which to bestow some gifts, and that these gifts are presented by the equally mysterious Gifting Stag. The Gifting Stag is said to be a bepotelkh with flaming yellow eyes, growing in power in late December and appearing on the edge of forest clearings and the outskirts of villages. His antlers are draped in silver cone bells.

When a bep receives a bundle of holly, a human friend ties it to one of their antlers. To humans, bep antlers covered in holly are seen as a good luck charm. Beps who lose an antler (or both) while still wearing holly may choose to give one of those antlers to their caretaker or another important human in their life. These decorated antlers can be seen on doors and village gates. With wild and free beps, this tradition is similar, but instead of humans tying the holly on, they have to get the help of other wild creatures like shroomkin! In villages, holly bundles for giving are handed out to beps by their village ambassadors. In the wilds, beps must find holly bushes to snip bundles from with their teeth.

Instructions

  • Pick characters from the masterlist to give holly to.
  • Each of your elkh may give out 3 holly bundles to any other elkh they choose (but please choose active users)!
    • You may, in ONE instance, have one of your beps give a holly bundle to another of your beps! (we decided this was too cute story-wise to be overlooked, but again, only once and with one bep!)
  • Comment on this news post, linking the bep who is giving the holly, and the three candidates they are giving holly to!
  • A moderator will send the holly currency to the recipients you chose.
  • Holly currency can then be spent at the Yule Shop, where you will find Gudvin has all kinds of gift boxes!
  • The gift boxes each enter you into a different raffle. See the below image to learn what you're entering for and buy the corresponding box.
  • Open the raffle ticket box to be entered into the raffle!
  • The hollygiving raffle will be rolled on December 26th and items will be delivered the same day.
  • If we get a high number of entries, we will increase the number of winners for each raffle!
  • You can enter all the raffles as many times as you want!
