    How do you usually spend this holiday?

    Not much, usually. There's not that much to be excited for. My best friend's birthday is Dec 23 but I've never actually been able to spend it with her because Christmastime busy-ness makes it hard.

    For the past several years, I mostly just spent Christmastime on PO. I'll update how my 25th goes. It doesn't snow where I live, so it's pretty bland.

    I have a friend whose birthday is Jan 1 and she's a big yugioh nerd. I'll probably be spending my December writing a fanfic for her.

    Gonna try to go for a ski trip later this month. But yah, don't usually do anything special. Or any other holiday... I'm boring.

    No snow here either.
    Usually the winter is spent shivering under rugs, playing stuff and waiting for exam grades to come out.

    First of all, kudos for the return of cool Safari events, good job! Second, how I spend this holiday hmmm.... Basically, me and parents go dine in my sister's house in the 24th Dec and we stay there until midnight to trade gifts etc. Then the following day we go there again but to eat lunch together and chill. It used to be more fun when i was a kid but it's still something different than usual.

    For the past few years, it's been spent at home having dinner with the family. The most entertaining time would be when I cut up the turkey...
    This year will probably be the same... time to sharpen my knife...

    Usually staying at home, visiting some friends, eating stuff, disturbing everyone, etc...

    This time, i am in a hilly region, away from family, not creating chaos :(... But hopefully i can witness snowfall for the first time and party with friends.

    Also thank you Miki and co for creating this sick event and making everyone feel like tryhards with no life :D

    I have nothing else to say but sleeping, i only like holidays because i can sleep a lot more than usual days, besides religiously i can't celebrate certain types of holidays.
    I also visit a lot of friends in holidays, we hangout and stuff.
    That's most i do!

    I usually stay at home, playing games, usually Pokemon. At Singapore, it usually rains since it is a tropical equatorial climate. It rains practically every December of the day. It also gets hot and humid because Singapore has low altitudes. Temperature in Singapore is around 30 degree Celsius (86 degree Fahrenheit). There is no snow in Singapore at all.

    I have managed to visit a one day trip to Malaysia to do eating, visiting Chinese temples and shopping, I have went to the wedding of Bonnie and Wei Xiong,it is wonderful wedding because I was able to shake hands with both of them. It was at Orchard Road, when the lights lit up at night, which is great. People wanted to go for Orchard because for shopping and for Christmas, making Orchard Road crowded with people.

    December is my favorite month of the year, also the month of my birthday so I usually spend this time relaxing and visiting friends and generally trying to keep my unhealthy stress levels to a minimum.

    But this holiday season I actually have important work to get done so I curse you for introducing this lucrative event at this time (jk y'all are amazing and wonderful and I love y'all for still being here and doing stuff for us nerds <3)

    It isn't terribly extravagant. Not even a little snow. Our family isn't big, and is essentially restricted to the immediate vicinity. So things are low-key to start with. We used to visit a good....no, dear friend every Christmas Day, but they have since left this world behind.

    Usually there's turkey, but sometimes there's chicken soup (which, unexpectedly, is preferable in terms of quantity of leftovers, preparation time, and actual flavor)

    First of all gz to the event staff and the main winners, good event, but the following needs to be said so that everyone gets warned, although most people will probably know in the channel. I saw 2 mistakes being made in prize delivery:

    -First, by looking at the 70 dew i got, i would ssy i received the 100-199 point rewards, instead of the 300-399 set i should get, since i ended with 291+10 = 301 points.

    -Second, i have seen ppl complaining about bag and boxes having different mons and items than it should. After analyzing mine i concluded that BOTH the bag and box got reverted to what thye had before the Winter Event started.

    In the end, great event but please put box/bag back to what they were before event ended and then give the proper rewards.

    Doy or I can help you restore your box to what it was and correct rewards when we're online. Since it's the holidays that may not be for a while, so thank you for your patience! We have been working with several players to do the same thing. It would be helpful if you could prepare a list of what you need added and taken away ahead of time.

    Reverting peoples accounts back to before the event upon reward granting. That's a pretty funny fuck up. How does that even happen? You'd have to take a backup of the bag beforehand.
