HEXmas has arrived!

Posted by HEX Staff on December 3, 2022 - 6:22 pm


A gentle, but crisp breeze wafts around you as snow encircles your visage. Tiny snowflakes cling to your eyelashes as they grow heavier and heavier. As you look up, the wintery sky seems to stretch on forever and ever, as does the landscape. Moments before, you were in the warmth of your home staring at a beautifully crafted snow globe. Now it's as though you're experiencing what it must be like inside the snow globe. The scenery looks familiar and there's really no other explanation for such a magical phenomenon. As you phase back into reality, you realize it's finally time for HEXmas.

Santa Claus was already hard at work to make sure you can get some extra coin on the Daily Money to fulfill your shopping needs. And, because we all know there can never be too many gifts and, as such, never enough money to buy them, don't forget to try your luck at our HEXmas Lottery. Fortunately, all this talk about gifts means that you can now set up a tree on your profile, as well as start sending the gifts you've purchased for your friends for this holiday season!

If gardening is just your thing, you can now also head to Hagrid's Hut and plant our beloved poinsettias that are returning this year! If your thumb is not as green as you'd like, though, you can always get some tips and help on our Guide and FAQ threads, so be sure to check them out!

Join us on our snowglobe of a HEXmas Forum, and make sure you don't take your eyes off our Watch Thread and Guide Thread to be up to date on all the important things happening throughout the month!
