It was that time of year again. The holidays. Personally, Haymitch wasn't a big fan. Gift giving, cheery faces, joyous gatherings? Not really his thing. However each year he did look forward to his annual Slug Club Christmas Party. That was the one thing about the holidays that he could tolerate. Some of his favorite students gathering around for an evening of intellectual conversation and frivolity? That was Haymitch's thing. He could hardly tolerate many of his coworkers and everyone knew how he felt about most students... So if you managed to snag an invite to this swanky party, it was safe to say you were well liked.
As always, the party took place in the room directly below the Astronomy tower: the astronomy classroom. The party usually lasted a couple of hours and included plenty of appetizers for mingling, a dinner of quite fancy proportions, and classical music to listen to during the festivities for Haymitch wasn't a fan of any other particular genre. It was a black tie event. If one showed up in anything less than formal attire, Haymitch would see to it they were personally asked to leave by he, himself. However Haymitch had high hopes for this year's party. It was a good group of students this year. He was looking forward to mingling with some of them and hearing about their other academic endeavors.
The classroom itself was not really any different than any other day. The desks had disappeared and instead were replaced with a large, round table so that everyone had to sit together and there could be no group forming during the meal. They were all refined adults, after all. The table had a maroon table cloth over it and there were only a few other slight Christmas themed decorations so as to please those that did enjoy the silly holiday. Haymitch was just putting in a new record for the last finishingn touch when he heard the door behind him open and footsteps entered the only slightly decorated room. The party had officially begun!
