As I was surfing around on Pinterest (my new internet obsession) the other day. I came across an outfit and thought to myself, “Oh DAMN Self! You HAVE to make that to wear to Winter Magic this year!” And then I remembered that it’s currently June. Therefore Winter Magic, though I’m in the middle of Summer at the moment, was this weekend.

So a couple of things; First, happy solstice for whichever hemisphere you are currently in. Your days are currently the longest they’ll be for the year, or the shortest. I know we’re getting dark about 11pm. Second, Happy Winter Magic Festival!

In honour of this occasion, here are some of my favourite photos from the last few years’ celebrations.

There is always so much fun to be had!


It’s a time to see, and be seen. (Yes, I was the object of this stare. Probably had something to do with the Lime green fun fur. What?!?)


Masks are worn.


The brighter your outfit


the better.


The crowds can be incredible!


There are knights in shining armour,




Magical beasts,


And a good sense of humour all around!


I hope all participants had a wonderful time, and had warm wood fires and comfort food waiting for you when you got out of the cold!

  1. greetings to you oh wise fishie,
    winter magic was sunny, and warm, about 12 degrees, perfect. the parade was filled with all manner of fun, the emerging genre of dressing up as animals had a possie in the parade that was funny, especially for the littlest Clarkie.
    did you get yarn yet?
    be well and warmer then us
    loves and hugs

    1. 12 eh? We hit about 16 yesterday. With wind and rain. 😛 Oh well 🙂 Walking home from the shops with groceries in the rain is oodles of fun!

      I believe the yarn is trying to be delivered as I type! *excited* I have just had confirmation! 😀 *dances*

      Himself was so excited by the coffee! Thank you so much!!! And we’ve moved into a place with a coffee maker!

      Everything’s coming up Milhouse!
