Thanks Ying for the poll!! I was torn between Christmas and New Year... went with Christmas though, because I'm sure Ilona could come up with some AWESOMELY hysterical gifts to be exchanged.  ;D

and a christmas tree with shiny shark teeth, throwing stars (the ninja stuff) and glittering thin silver chain on it instead of ornaments and lametta... hehe. But actually I can see Kate decorating a tree and even enjoy it.

Umm, guys, Magic Strikes ends in early fall.  Magic Bleeds starts in November, covering Thanksgiving and Christmas.  You story will have spoilers in it if you pick any holiday after Magic Strikes.

So this short will have to take place before Curran or you will have to resign yourself to huge spoilers which will ruin the book.

I kind of don't want any spoilers. :(

MBites is in summer?  I seem to remember it was really hot.  So the available holidays are 4th of July, Labor Day and Halloween.  I don't remember when Kate's birthday is...or when Julie's birthday is.  But I think either birthday would be nice. ;D

And thankU Ilona!
