A Very Barbaric New Year!
January 2022 Sightings

A very happy New Year to everyone! Happily, most loyal readers report that their midnight celebrations were uneventful. However, late last night, we received several reports in our email about some very strange happenings!

If you rang in the New Year at the Barbarous night club last night, it's possible that shiver up your spine wasn't just the chill from the front door. The LIGHTHOUSE doesn't have all the details yet, but we have it from several VERY REPUTABLE sources that suspicious characters were drawing circles in the alley behind the club! You know the kind!

Whatever happened last night, there's something strange about the club in the morning light, wouldn't you say, dear readers?? And it's not just the hangover! Be careful with your party spots people, but if you just can't resist the dance floor, report back if you see anything!

The other set of reports comes from the library, the site of just last month's Winter Festival! Just as the LIGHTHOUSE predicted, not all of those sheet-wearing mischief-makers were people in costume! And we're POSITIVE that not all of those little trinkets they handed out were just nice to look at!

Flying books, shadowy figures between the stacks? The Grey Mares must've pissed something off in the library! If you're the knowledge-seeking sort, brave the shelves for us and report back!

To the more adventurous readers of the LIGHTHOUSE! Head out to Aston Public Library or Barbarous and report back!

An approaching Chinese New Year

The Chinese New Year isn't happening until February 1st but that just gives you, dear readers, more time to prepare! While we're sure to see a glorious festival down in Balmoral, there's always more under the surface! Whatever your tradition, it's always good to have fireworks on hand to ward off bad spirits and Nian. And for extra good luck, consider buying and decorating your dinner table with twelve different round fruits, one for each month of the year!

And if anyone wants to send some of those red envelopes our way, our PO Box is always open. More on this great festival next month! Stay alert and stay safe this new year! And remember your S.I.S!: "Silver. Iron. Sunlight."

Mermaids in the harbor???

Sometimes that enchanting singing down in Old Town subway isn't just a particularly good street performance. The LIGHTHOUSE has it on good authority that there are MERMAIDS in the harbor and reports of a recent altercation PROVE IT. Although there was no body or remains, eyewitnesses drawn by the sound of shouting and gunshots say that they spotted two men fighting an aquatic monster! A heinous creature that tried to draw our two heroes into the depths with its alluring song.

While we have no photographic evidence and no access to police reports, there is no doubt in our mind that mermaids lurk in the dark waters of our fair harbor. Be careful where you go swimming, dear readers! Stick to indoor pools!

It really is a shame that our so called protectors aren't really doing much to protect us. I even heard rumors of them sicking out these monsters. Is this the kind of city we want to live in.
