Favourite Holiday/Celebration

My favourite holiday is coming up in just about a month: For me Christmas is the undisputed winner here. But there are so many different holidays taking place around this time of year and if you count all the rest of the year too.... there are A LOT. And about two weeks ago my second most favourite ...

Advice Books

I moved last month, moving away from my parents, and that has made me suddenly aware of a lot of things I don't know: How should one clean their gutter for instance? Or how does one get rid of a slightly mouldy smell in their washing machine? All good questions I never had to know the answer to befo...

Re: Potter Pronunciations

Names are the bane of my existence! I read the four firat books in another language which meant I read all names to be pronounced like this other language would call for them to be pronounced. Mostly Hermione changed A LOT in my mind, but I do think of her name 'correctly' when I read and think if i...

Audio Book Narrators

When reading a book, the 'voice' of the author is very important for my enjoyment of the book, but recently I've gotten back into hearing a lot of audio books and I've noticed that there the voice of the narrator adds another dimension to the story as well as the author's voice. For instance a book ...

Re: Holiday Decorating

I love decorating for Christmas. That's my favourite holiday to decorate for - and also the only one where I go FULL out on it. I put up a lot of ornaments in red - gnomes and santa's helpers, candy cane baubles, miniature weaved reed shoes, and lots of other similar thing as well as glass icicles a...

Re: The Hobbit - Introduce Yourself!

Hello, my name is Gail Allen and I am a 3rd year Ravenclaw - it feels so strange to say that! I joined HOL in September 2016, so it's 2 years and a month since I joined. It feels simultaniously like more and less time. I have gotten a couple of nics in my time here at HOL, among them: Twinsie, Gale ...

Re: The Language Barrier

When I watch broadcast tv everything that isn't my native language is subtitled - and if someone has a heavy dialect or slurs their words a lot or something else is judged to be making it hard to understand, it will also be subtitled. I used to really need these too and I still probably read them ju...

Where do you find your Energy?

Summer is over and school is starting up again both here at HOL and in RL. And for those who no longer go to school in RL, many would have had a holiday over the summer, but have to return to work. And somehow we all manage. But it makes me wonder where other people find their energy for dealing wit...

Re: Deathly Hallows - Which one would you choose?

I'd go with the invisibility cloak. It's a great tool if you use it right. I would just be careful never to risk eavesdropping: Those that do never hear anything nice about themselves as I know from personal experience: I was once on a camp where people thought I was asleep and that the walls were m...
