I want some Christmas games!


I doesn’t appear that you expressed your intent to participate soon enough, but perhaps a match can be made. I’m not sure if you’ve read the first post in this thread? I think wanting some Christmas games is a good place to start. You also need to want to give some Christmas games.

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but you're a bit late to the party, and the vetting/matching process already happened. With luck tho, we'll be doing this again next year and you are welcome to give this a try then.

Actually some of my neighbours put up Christmas lights on their balconies in the last week of October. While the sun sets rather early over here (the sun currently is up between 7 AM and 4 PM), I think at least mid November is the earliest to put up Christmas lights.

When I grew up, the day after Thanksgiving (here in the U.S.) was when we would put up our Christmas tree, along with any outdoor lights. I actually haven't had a Christmas tree in ... about a decade, but I think I'm going to put one on my front porch this year.

Chicgamer I hope you do put up a tree this year, its so festive and makes your entire living area a real joy.  I look forward to black Friday to get my tree up!  I go to Hallmark every year to buy some new ornaments, loving the video game ones a lot.. Last year Princess Peach one was excellent and don't forget those sweet arcade machine ornaments!

I really do want to put up a tree this year, though I'll likely skip on the ornaments. I have two cats inside, as well as a community cat that likes to hang out on my porch outside, so I don't think ornaments would stay on my tree for long.

I finally found some good size boxes, now to fill 'em, wrap 'em, put 'em in ANOTHER box, and mail 'em!

 

This has been good fun, wish I'd participated sooner, already can't wait for next year! 🎅

So good to read about everyone having a good time with this!

 

I certainly am.  I'm rounding up a couple more items in the mail, including a very nice deal I made with another member here (if you're reading this... Mum's the word!). 😉

 

This is a great way to bring in the holidays, which are approaching fast -I can feel it!

Things are going well here too.  I think my recipient will enjoy the gift.  I will probably be shipping this weekend.

I'm excited about what I found for one item for my person...it is on its way to me currently.  Found a good box, then to assign the appropriate other items and treats.

I feel like I need to put on a little elf suit to put everything together. :)

This is pretty silly...

                       ... but then, this whole week has been pretty silly.

 

 

 

Hope this power (moon) walking santa inspires you while we do our santa package gatherings.

 

I'm feeling pretty pro myself right now. Thanks 80's Santa.

Just a note to anyone buying from the AtariAge store for Secret Santa: please send Albert a PM or send an email to [email protected] to let him know that your purchase is for Secret Santa. He'll work on getting these orders processed more quickly.
