Festival of Light

To any Deltas out there, happy Festival of Light, about to start at sundown in a couple of hours. Mind you, we're ahead of galactic standard here, so I'll have a head-start on most of you. [hic] Oops, sorry. Bit of Latin there.

Avon threw out all of Meegat's candles and wouldn't let me use what he called Molotov cocktails (nine little oil containers, very authentic) or his spare LEDs. But I've found some gas lamps here on GP in an old hut. I'm a bit nervous of them, but I've got a long wick and I'll stand well back.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, my ghost-writer Nico wrote about it here. Still haven't seen any royalties...
