Hallow-Xmas 2: The Final Championship Round!

Halloween, Xmas, Hallow-Xmas, Eyewire, citizen science, Amy Sterling, holiday

When the solstice draws close, Hallow-Xmas then ends,
And we hope you’ve enjoyed tracing hard with your friends.
But one round remains to determine the winner,
So join us again for a grand festive dinner!

Since the days when we started with pumpkins and spiders
We’ve now poured our eggnog and mulled apple cider;
With gingerbread cookies and peppermints too,
We send season’s greetings from Eyewire HQ!

… And don’t you forget: at the end of this story,
Our overlord Grim waits to crown you with glory!
