    Not actually true. Qaghaq tal-ghasel are sold year-round, and to my knowledge, are no more Christmassy than Easter eggs. They may once have been associated with Christmas, but that association is long gone these days.

    Thinking something similar for smultrings. I have seen those sorts of donuts around for months, though admittedly it may have to do with them starting to sell that stuff here months ago, like with julemenn/kakemenn. Those being rock hard cookies. Ate a few sets of them this year, but am glad to say I helped make a non-store batch a few days back, and they are as soft as childhood memories had them. On a side note, I really hate how mince pies don't have meat in them. I was so disappaointed to find it had nothing but dried fruit and nuts in them. Fortunately someone made something with sardines, so I had those instead. Such fun sampling the Christmas treats of multiple nationalities. On a side note, anyone think peladillas as candy might be cheating? Also, I am pretty sure the ones they have for Denmark are correct, though Iceland's Christmas treat is eaten by most Scandinavians, to my knowledge. Might just be those on the North Atlantic, though.

    This map is perfect for showing how many language (not really dialect) differences there are in Italy.

    Map of Soviet Central Asia in 1922. This map is interesting for a few notable reasons, one of which being the name Kirgizistan in lieu of Kazakhstan. Might be useful for those who want a Soviet Union without National delimitation.

    Great map, but wasn't Rockall deemed too small to be worth showing?

    I love the sidebar de facto changes, like having the US protectorates marked as what they are and the native reserves shown as, again, what they are. Great job! As for the reservations, couldn't Canada and Brazil also be large enough here? I managed to scratch up a Brazil reserve map from my registry;

    I even found a worlda reservations map of the US and Canada that seems accurate as far as I can tell;

    US expansion.png

    I was bored so I threw together a QBAM of US expansion. Let me know if I messed up anything, because I probably did (I actually missed West Florida, Alaska, and Oregon at first) or if the color pattern sucks, which it might.

    I didn't include territories the US doesn't have anymore (Liberia, Philippines, Cuba, Panama Canal, Micronesian countries) or the Minor Outlying Islands, just the main parts of the US. (although maybe I should have at least included the MOIs).

    Is it a good idea to show land purchases from the Iroquois and not other sovereign (or theoretically sovereign) indigenous nations?

    AFAIK the Iroquois were the only tribe to have an actual state entity after 1783, and the others like the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Seminole etc. nations were more like the modern reservations in their political status, autonomous entities within the US (though the Cherokee may have been an independent state at some point before then?), and the cessions from them were ceding land to the federal government or state governments rather than to the US as a country.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, this stuff is kinda confusing so I might not understand it as well as I should.

    That said though, a map of all these land cessions would be interesting.

    I've decided to start doing OTL maps, starting with a classic, Austria-Hungary in 1914. Sadly, this map does not include the autonomous cities within the Austria divisions, but they will be added in the future. Additionally, this site is iffy on map size, so the full size map can be found here.

    You can vote for what map will be done next here.

    Does anyone know where I could find a map of Native American Territories in America in 1815?
