may I claim Chapter 17?

I wasn't sure if it was allowed, but if we can claim two, I'd also like Chapter 6

You can claim 2 sections; I have noted that you wish to record them in the magic window (MW) above.

Before you start recording them, please complete the 1-Minute Test to ensure your technical settings are correct.

Tatiana,

Thank you for volunteering.

The Christmas Spirit should not be limited to just a few days a year.
