§ Foy says: Happy Sol 16! If you marked Thursday special as many of us did here in the United States, I hope you were able to spend it safely with family, whether virtually or in the flesh, sharing time and traditions on the savory, butter-laden, complicated-yet-cherished holiday that is Thanksgiving. To make up for the faces missed, we at the Ice Dragon lair let Christmas out early, and every surface is now draped in tinsel and wrapped in lights! 2020 is looking brighter. Thank you for sharing the closing days with us here at Fire&Ice. ❤
