Winterfaire 2013 is currently open on LiveJournal and Dreamwidth, with some different booths in each place. Post a booth with your creative goods/services, or shop for holiday gifts from independent creators. The linkback perk is "No One to Greet the Season" which currently has 33 of 72 verses posted, so it's more than a third done. You can reveal new verses by linking to the Winterfaire, posting a booth, buying something, or sharing a link for a similar holiday bazaar. If you've already linked, it's okay, you can boost the signal again periodically since this project runs for a long time.

It has snowed several times this week. The first was thick and fluffy, then later on it turned powdery. This has brought more birds to the various feeders.
