Welcome to Gaia! ::

Hello everyone!

Pugnacious Banana and myself are currently working on a joint Winter Market project, and we were wondering if any of you, awesome gaians, would be interested in joining us.

The idea is pretty simple:

Each gaian who wants to join picks a city and makes a post in the Winter Market thread that includes (ideally):
- A quick description of the city/market (you can explain how winter is celebrated in this city, if you want to),
- A contest / give away ...

The example is in the post below.

Feel free to ask questions and make suggestions!

We hope that many of you will join us so we can celebrate Winter all together yum_puddi yum_strawberry

"With 350 stands, the market place at Paris - La Défense is one of the largest and most festive holiday markets in Paris -- in the surreal setting of high-rise buildings and the looming white structure of the Grande Arche."

Yule Log Contest

"In France and Wallonia, and thence also in Quebec and in Lebanon, the Bûche de Noël ("Christmas log" wink is a traditional dessert, in origin a facsimile of the actual Yule log. The tradition of the Yule log was discontinued as large fireplaces became an increasingly rarer feature of the average living room. The dessert is usually in the form of a large rectangular yellow cake spread with frosting and rolled up into a cylinder - one end is then lopped off and stood on end to indicate the rings of the "log." It is not known when the dessert, or its name, originated. It is known to have existed by 1945, and apparently, a tradition of jam rolls served at Christmas is attested for Poitou-Charentes since the 19th century."

- You have to draw a decorated yule log and PM it to Etoile Celeste;
- You may enter several time;
- The prettiest yule log wins.
