Friends, brothers, allies, comrades….
MERRY CHRISTMAS! It’s been such a wonderful time, I wish it was in my power to make it last forever! I’ve had, and I know I am not alone, some truly wonderful times this week! Undead or no, there’s nothing like the thrill of the Holidays to make one feel alive and home again, if only for a brief duration.
The true meaning of this season is to give, my friends, and what you’ve given me is beyond compare. Initially, I had planned on donning my armor and setting foot in the snows of Ariamis all on my lonesome. I considered this for several days, and then decided that in a time of such merriment, the more, the better. I put together this event and spread it out to as many reaches as I could muster in hopes of bringing everyone a little bit closer together this Holiday season. I love Dark Souls and the community, however small, is often a wonderful one to be a part of. Very few games have captured my interest and imagination to the degree that this one has, and to have the opportunity to give back to the community that continues to make it one of my favorite games of all time was one that I couldn’t pass up.
Within three days of this blog launching, it amassed more followers than I ever hoped it would! I had been expecting maybe five or ten people to be on board with this event, and instead I was greeted with waves of enthusiastic response, anticipation, and encouragement. It was a wonderful feeling, and one that I thank you all for very deeply. We have 53 followers, many of whom took the time to participate in the event and make my holiday daydream a reality. The others were there in spirit!
I’d like to personally thank each and every one of you.

Thank you ALL, so VERY much for sharing with me your stories, your art, your support, your cheer, and your time. It means a lot.
Merry Christmas, friends, to all of you. We made a lot of people happy this week and I hope it reflects on your Holidays. No matter what happens, where you go, or who you are, the season and the memories remain. This humble Onion will never forget what you did this week and you all have my best wishes.
So please, put your best foot forwards, and enjoy yourselves as much as I have today. Have the best Christmas you possibly can, all of you!
Maybe I’ll see you all again next year.
HO HO HO!
