Why does everyone and their wyvern call it the Starlight Festival when it's official name is the Starlight Celebration?

I mean, I don't think we can blame this on a name-change like we do with Summerfest/Sunbreeze thing. Can we?

YOU JUST HAVE TO ADMIT IT IS KIND OF ODD, IS ALL. No one calls it a celebration! (GO ON: NAME ONE PERSON. I challenge you!)

We call it the Starlight Celebration here. I don't think I've ever heard "festival" before, but I'm just barely starting out. Maybe it's a colloquial thing?

Woah, no way! You call it the exact same thing?! That is so weird!

I'm not sure it's any weirder than any of the other similarities our two worlds have.

Yeah, maybe not...

... What would be weird was if it was called the Starlight Festival and then everyone called it the Starlight Celebration!

That would be SUPER weird!

Maybe so.

I'm still not sure it would surprise me.

But it would be weird!

I'm Ki, by the way! I mean, you know who I am and I know who you are, but introductions are cool! SO HELLO. I am Ki Harahno, or sometimes Kihara, but mostly Ki! It is nice to meet you. :D

Nice to meet you, Ki. I'm Rana. You've probably heard already about my second name.

Haha, yeah, talk about weird similarities! Don't worry, Hisi stopped freaking out about it months ago, and none of the rest of us ever had a problem with it. XD

... Did she tell you to tell me that?

...Was she supposed to?

From: [identity profile]
No, I just...

Sorry. I said I'd try to stop reacting badly. I'm not doing so well with it so far.

No problem! :3 I guess I can't really blame you for being a little worried. It's kind of an awkward situation still, huh?

A little bit.

So what does your Starlight THING include? :D

Not much so far, from what I've seen. There's some sort of enchantment that causes it to snow, there are some decorated trees and arches set up in the towns, and you can ring celebratory bells. If you do that, a Smilebringer will give you a gift.

Ha! We have Smilebringers, too! Can you dress up as one? I like the hats. (WAIT. Are they still all red and white-fur-trimmed?)

We also have trees and fake snow! And bells! But you don't get gifts for ringing them! The bells are a gift!

Sometimes, the Smilebringers will give you supplies so you can make your own costume. I don't have one yet, because I'm not very good at weaving. But the outfits sound similar.

From: [identity profile]
Aw, you have to make it yourself? Lame! The Moogles give us ours all made and ready to wear!

(I am the worst sewing-person in the whole of Vana'diel, I am pretty sure! Thank goodness I did not have to make mine!)

That would be a whole lot easier... Maybe I can get Iol to help me, I think she might have some experience weaving.

Oh, um, Iol is a friend of mine.

Date: 2010-12-19 06:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
You should definitely ask her!

(Is Iol also a Mithra-Miqo'te - IS THAT RIGHT? - like you and me?)

Date: 2010-12-19 06:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah, Miqo'te. And, yeah, she is.

I will, next time I see her. She's hard to get hold of.

Date: 2010-12-19 06:32 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yay! :3

Show me pictures if she can make it!

Date: 2010-12-19 06:33 am (UTC)

Okay. I'll do that.
