Judging by the date on this calender beside me, I'm assuming this is some sort of temporary time shenanigan. Of course, this isn't to discredit more recent memories.
There is just really is no other explanation I can think of, as realistically speaking I shouldn't have woken up in my old dorm bed without reason.
Regardless, this is serving as a prime opportunity to catch up with everyone. I'm afraid my research has caused me to fall out of contact with many people.
If anyone is interested, I'd like to get a drink or two at the Three Broomsticks. It'd be on me.

I'm considering the possibility of moving to another school.
Maybe investing in a home tutor.
That was beyond all levels of what I expected to have to tolerate when I came here.

I JUST REALISED THAT TODAY IS 23 OCTOBER. MY, HOW TIME FLIES. THE WINTER HOLIDAY WILL BE HERE BEFORE WE KNOW IT.
SPEAKING OF OCTOBER THOUGH, 19 OCTOBER WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE 997TH ANNUAL FREIMARKT IN BREMEN, GERMANY.
IN THE BREMER DIALECT, ONE WOULD SAY "ISCHA FREIMAAK" AND IN FACT YOU CAN SEE THAT WRITTEN EVERYWHERE, ESPECIALLY ON HEART-SHAPED GINGERBREAD COOKIES.
WHICH ARE QUITE DELICIOUS. I REALLY SHOULD HAVE SOME DELIVERED TO THE CASTLE.
BUT I DIGRESS.
IT SEEMS THE GERMAN MUGGLES HAVE A THING FOR 17-DAY CELEBRATIONS. WELL. MAYBE NOT. SORT OF. OKTOBERFEST IS ONLY 16 DAYS APPARENTLY.
LET ME AMEND THAT TO "CELEBRATIONS THAT GO INTO THE DOUBLE DIGITS."
OF COURSE THE REASONS FOR THE BEGINNING OF THESE FESTIVALS ARE VASTLY DIFFERENT BUT THE WAY THEY ARE CELEBRATED IS SIMILAR.
IN FACT I ATTENDED ONE SEVERAL YEARS AGO.
THERE WERE ALL THESE LIGHTS EVERYWHERE AND FOOD AND MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF THINGS TO DRINK.
THERE WERE ALSO THESE CONTRAPTIONS, CALLED "ROLLER COASTERS" AND THEY SIMULATE TYPES OF FLIGHT.
IT IS, HOWEVER, NOTHING LIKE RIDING A BROOMSTICK.
SOME PEOPLE WEAR THESE THINGS CALLED "DIRNDLS" ALTHOUGH THIS TYPE OF TRADITIONAL CLOTHING IS FROM SOUTHERN GERMANY. THIS SIMILAR TO THE JUXTAPOSITION OF BAVARIAN BREWERIES HAVING RESTAURANTS IN FORMER PRUSSIA.
ALSO DIRNDLS ARE SPECIFICALLY FOR WOMEN.
YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW THIS; I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MAY OR MAY NOT BE AWARE OF.
SOMETIMES THINGS CAN BE TRICKY WHEN DEALING WITH NOT ONLY MUGGLE CULTURE, BUT A DIFFERENT NATIONALITY'S MUGGLE CULTURE.
THERE SHOULD BE A TERM FOR THAT.
BE WARNED ABOUT THIS FESTIVAL; THERE MERCHANTS WEARING CLOTHING SIMILAR TO WIZARD ROBES WHO CLAIMED TO BE SELLING VARIOUS ELIXIRS.
FRANKLY, THIS WAS NOT THE CASE AND THE ACTUAL CONTENT IS NOT SOMETHING CHILDREN NEED TO GET THEIR HANDS ON.

THIS TIES INTO THE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT FOR ALL STUDENTS TAKING MUGGLE STUDIES. EVERYONE NEEDS TO RESEARCH A MUGGLE HOLIDAY OR FESTIVAL AND WRITE ABOUT IT. THINGS YOU SHOULD INCLUDE SHOULD OF COURSE, BE THE LOCATION SAID EVENT OCCURS IN. ALONG WITH THAT. BE SURE YOU WRITE ABOUT HOW IT STARTED, THE TRADITIONS THAT TIE INTO IT, AND ANY OTHER INTERESTING INFORMATION YOU COME UPON.
THERE IS NO MAXIMUM LENGTH; THE MORE DETAIL, THE BETTER.
THIRD AND FOURTH YEARS SHOULD WRITE AT LEAST 5 INCHES.
FIFTH THROUGH SEVENTH YEARS SHOULD WRITE AT LEAST 10.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO ASK.

I SAW IT.

FROM MY WINDOW.

OUTSIDE. BY THE FOREST.


I KNEW IT EXISTED.

It's disappointing that I wasn't able to find everything I wanted in Hogsmeade. Only to be expected though, and I have everything that I need...

Would anyone like to volunteer their time to help me with a little experiment?
