Having an "Elf Day"

A bit of streetwise lingo for saying a day is a crappy one. Well, at least for Hyrkhallians, where the use of this bit of jargon seems to have sprung. Its origins seem to stem from the Ugly Fire Wars that raged in Hyrkhallia as the Nexus Wars came to a close. That elves fleeing from the most recent incursion into Arduin caused the wars in Hyrkhallia to foment and drag the country into civil war is unquestioned. And why they came up with the term. It seemed appropriate since the team of elves that stayed kept the country in the throes of civil war for nearly two cycles.

So having an “Elf Day” is a bad one, at least to some.   Travelers from the east and, obviously, from Hyrkhallia seem to employ this term the most.  So you here it here and there, sparingly or often depending on where you happen to be at the moment.

Which leads to the question of the day – are you having an Elf Day today?
