HEXmas continues to unfold! Fred's Holiday Store in Diagon Alley is now open for all of your Christmas related purchases. In addition to this, there are many new things for Christmas on Hex. They are:
Candy Cane Grams:
Buy candy cane grams in Fred's Holiday Store and then send a special message to someone. Messages will be on their very own page, and the notification to the receiver comes in the form of a bigger, different event.
Santa Daily Money:
Santa has taken over daily money and will go crazy with it at times. Better keep a close eye on it. Don't underestimate just how high the galleon amounts might get!
Christmas Spirit Submissions:
Submit your Christmas Spirit thoughts. Approved submissions will be randomly displayed in the Christmas box on My Hex. More info can be found here
Wish lists have been re-labeled as Christmas lists. Everyone is encouraged to update their lists
for specific things they want for Christmas!
Santa Milk and Cookies Random Events:
Throughout the entire site, all users will have an equal chance to get a Santa Milk and Cookies item through a random event. When one receives this item, they can then offer it to Santa for hope of something in exchange. You will find though that Santa can be very picky about his milk and cookies, as he will let you know his thoughts on them. As always, excessive refreshing will result in an automatic Azkaban sentence from the server, as it will detect it.
Remember, even more HEXmas stuff is going on! Read the post below this one for more info.
Have fun, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!

Christmas time is finally here, HEX! I know you've all been waiting and wondering: What are they going to do this year? Are we going to get RE presents? Should we still Beware of Salazar? No, no presents falling from the sky this year. Pull up a seat in the Great Hall and tuck in, because it's time for the Christmas Feast!
We've had the house elves cooking 24/7 for the last two weeks, preparing the meal to end all meals. I hope you've been saving room for Christmas supper and have a few notches left on your belts, because you'll need them before the night is over. Roast chicken, fried sausages, shepherd's pie, Cornish pasties, lamb chops, kidney pie, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, custard tart, mint humbugs, treacle tart, spotted dick, cranberry sauce, and rice pudding. I'm getting hungry just talking about it!
But the feast isn't the only thing to look forward to. True to tradition, the house tables are piled high with Wizard Crackers! You heard me right: CRACKERS! Grasp one end, ask a friend to pull the other, and BANG! The room fills up with smoke, you're deaf in one ear, and one of you gets an awesome prize. We've got Galleons, balloons, ornaments, and all kinds of hats, and the only place you're going to get them is at the feast. You'll get one at the door and the more time you spend stuffing your face, chatting with friends, and hanging out at the Christmas feast, the more chances you'll get to nab a few more.
So put on your Christmas best, bring your eating chops, and enjoy the feast with your friends as snow falls from the ceiling. And from all of us at Hogwarts Extreme, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and we hope you make out with a pile of new items and a full belly. But don't forget: Santa can see you when you're refreshing, and if you do it too much, he might just send you to bed with no supper and a lump of coal!

That's right, yo: it's time for a hot new Ravie Restock in the house! We're set up to rock out for the next week with lots of fly fund raising-type stuff and games and awesome music. We've got all the hits, man, so if you wanna dance all night with the Ravenclaw staff, buy your way into our common room for the next six months, get yo bad self a custom forum title like I'm a BOSS, or help MC Kringle with his "wrapping," you best get one of yo Ravie friends to kick you an invite to the hottest event of the season.
You think you can handle an event this hot? Then dance your dope booty past the bouncer and into the Room of Requirement, newly renovated to be the hottest club in Hogwarts! And be sure to check out the smokin' new rare we got straight off the Weird Sisters' tour bus: Merton Graves' Cello.

We can't ever just have a normal Hexmas, can we? And especially not with the staff of the Quibbler! This issue, we see Adam turn into a diva - literally - spread some Christmas un-cheer, and even receive cameo appearances from Ke$ha and... a Suicune?
All of this and more in Hex's #1 source for trufax news! Read HERE!

Do you find yourself harassing strangers in Diagon Alley to sell you the only item on your best friend's wish list? Do you find yourself camping out in front of Naut Fur You, hoping it will restock itself during odd hours of the morning, giving you first dibs on those big-ticket items? Maybe you're just too lazy to do any shopping to begin with. Whatever the case may be, the perfect solution to all your problems can be found at Gringotts.
Goblins don't generally find themselves participating in much of the holiday festivities; they're much too busy and Ebenezer Scrooge-like to care. No, the only reason they've made this gift available is to hopefully reduce the amount of complaints that galleons cannot be easily transferred between the vaults of family and friends. For the first time on HEX, Gringotts will offer HEX-Mas Gift Cards for all of those desperate gift-givers who cannot be bothered to shop for all 250 Hogfriends (I don't know about you, but I really need to prune my list). These limited edition gift cards can only be given or donated. Magic has even been worked on them so that they will revert automatically to their Galleon amount at the end of the holiday season.

The Weasley's are camping in the Gryffindor Common Room, and Fat Lady is, er, unable to fulfill her duties. This means until we manage to sort her out, people from all the houses can visit the Common Room. Just wink at her and she'll let you through.
To stop all the visitors causing too much of a commotion, the Gryffie staff have arranged for a heap of contests and a free raffle to keep everyone entertained. So get yourself down there and join in the fun.
Happy Holidays from the Gryffindor Staff!

The Whisperer is here once again, though we're not quite sure what happened with the staff this month. Maybe they shouldn't have hired those Death Eaters after all! Find out what happened in this month's issue!
