    If you want to participate in one or both of the calendars
    1. choose a date (tell us which date you want to contribute by making a post in this thread) and
    2. make a forum post in the calendar thread at the given date.


    What is this?

    If you want to continue the tradition of the advent calendar, sign-up for a date between Dec 1 and Dec 25 above and prepare a treat to post on your date, such as a poem, a video, a recipe, a special greeting, a photograph etc. If you are new to this forum and this tradition or need some inspiration, take a look at the previous calendars: 2012 (signup), 2011 (sign-up), 2010 (sign-up) and 2009 (sign-up).

    For the past years, we've also had a Goblin calendar for the 12 days between Dec 25 and Jan 6. According to Greek traditions, these days are called dodecameron (12-day time) and they are days of feast, tricks, fun, tolerance and jokes and those who want to participate should compose a post within this context.
    Why a "Goblin calendar"? The goblins live in the underworld during the entire year, cutting little by little the tree on which the earth is based. At the Christmas Eve the tree trunk stands up on a tiny piece of wood. Just before the moment of the world's destruction the goblins leave the underworld and on Christmas day they walk around on earth, teasing people, stealing food and sweets, messing up the house warehouses, break into homes to eat the food that is prepared etc. When sun rises on January 6th, e.g. when Christ was baptized, the Holy Ghost appears and the goblins rush into the underworld to continue cutting the tree. But the tree has recovered during the holy days and they now have to work hard for the new year to cut it off again, till the next Christmas day. These are the previous goblin calendars: 2012/2013 (signup), 2011/2012 (signup), 2010/2011.
