Birthday of the Unconquered Sun  

#bemused I’m throwing a solstice party, the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun. Some friends suggested I open a Skype channel or Google hangout on my smart TV so people in the US and Britain could call in. It immediately got out of hand, and somebody said I should try doing an all-continents party, excepting, we presumed, Antarctica.

Only then a friend of mine turns out to know somebody who’s on The Ice *right now*, and so Antarctica will be calling in (or at leat sending on a photo!) to the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun. And look, you can’t get much more unconquered sun than the South Pole on the 21st of December. FURTHERMORE, a friend in North Pole, Alaska, will also be hosting an Unconquered Sun party the same day, and that’s about aas *conquered* as the sun can get (unless I find somebody in Barrow to host a party), so look, people, I’m not about to let my side of this down.

So I need Asia, Australia and South America and Africa, lads. Who wants to help throw an international party?

When I first saw Unconquered Sun, I first thought of the RPG Exalted. ;) A Solstice Party, though, sounds lovely.

You're not the first, and when the first said that I kinda went "d'oh!", but no. :)

...drat. A friend will be just back from South America then, otherwise Id totally throw him to the wolves, er, hosting.

Fwiw, I am *completely* delighted with the out-of-hand-ed-ness of this.

I can also totally help with Australia.

oh, awesome.

If there was ANY WAY you could be here I would make it your birthday party. *hugs* :)

This is way cool. How is it going to work? (I'm hosting a Yule dinner party that night, but depending on the timing...)

I imagine, I'll be the only attendee from Estonia. What should I bring?

Aw, I'll just have left Vietnam for the UK...
