Note: Find out more about the burning of the clavie in Burghead, Moray, Scotland, and why they celebrate the New Year on 11 January.
Summary: It's two days after his 39th birthday and Minerva is worried that having taken a barely recovered Severus to Burghead to celebrate new beginnings, of the new year, of their lives and of their love, may have been the wrong thing to do. Will the burning of the clavie not remind him too much of the horrors of the past? Or will this custom bring the rebirth of happiness and joy they both are hoping for?
