Starlight Celebration Crier: A very merry Starlight to you, friend. Do you have any questions about the festivities? I'd be more than happy to provide answers.

What will you ask?

> What is the Starlight Celebration?

Starlight Celebration Crier: The Starlight Celebration can be traced back to ancient Ishgard. Long ago, a terrible battle claimed countless lives, leaving thousands of children orphaned in the harsh cold weather of Coerthas.

Starlight Celebration Crier: Unable to bear their suffering, Ishgardian knights would offer these children board and lodging within their barracks. Of course, this was expressly forbidden, but the knights devised a plan to sneak them in, disguising the children in jackets of their scarlet uniforms.

Starlight Celebration Crier: Owing to their generosity, the children survived the winter and lived to pay forward the kindness they had received. The former orphans would adorn themselves in scarlet uniforms, delivering gifts to children on the coldest week of the year. Thus, the Starlight Celebration was born.

Starlight Celebration Crier: Over the years, the celebration has undergone gradual changes. The snowy-bearded captain of the kind-hearted knights has become known as the “Saint of Nymeia,” and children believe that he delivers their hopes and prayers directly to the goddess Herself.

Starlight Celebration Crier: Similarly, his red-jacketed knights have become the “saint's little helpers.” They are particularly beloved by the younglings, for it is their role to bring gifts to every child who sends a prayer to the Spinner.

> What's your task in all this?

Starlight Celebration Crier: My scarlet-clad colleagues and I have been charged by the Adventurers' Guild with running the Starlight Celebration. The festival spans the entire realm of Eorzea, and we have little helpers stationed in the cities of Gridania, Limsa Lominsa, and Ul'dah.

Starlight Celebration Crier: This year, Mother Miounne and her staff at the Carline Canopy have most kindly offered to assist us in preparing gifts to be delivered to the children at Bentbranch Meadows. I can scarcely wait to see what sort of delights she whips up for us!

Starlight Celebration Crier: And of course, the celebrants are always looking for new present ideas. If you have any, by all means, do share them with my colleagues!
