CoS Holiday Calendar 2009


December is a month in which many of us have a holiday to celebrate. For a lot of Dutch children and adults Saint Nicolas' evening (December 5th) is the most important day in the year after their birthday. For Muslims December 8th means the start of Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice). The 21st marks the start of Hanukkah and the Winter/Summer Solstice. Then on December 25 it's Christmas. In short there is a lot to celebrate.

It's an old tradition to use an Advent Calendar to count and celebrate the days of Advent until Christmas arrives. We have chosen for this year to let any member who wants to create something to do so.

ETA: We have extended this calendar until New Year's Day.

So what does this mean?

People willing to make something for the Calendar should post their name in this thread and the date of their preference. This is on a first come, first serve basis. However if there are a lot of sign ups we might be able to do two people a day.


We want to reserve the last 4 days for the Houses. So if the houses are willing to make something as a group, let us know. The House Cup winner, Ravenclaw may choose their date first.

What to make?
  • Something festive and Harry Potter related. A story, drawing, game, video, song, anything. If you make a video, make sure we can host it on LJ (so provide html code)
  • Forum Rules as always should be kept in mind.
  • An avatar size picture (125x125) which we can put on the calendar and will hide your entry. (to see it people would have to click the avatar)

When to send in your entry?

Two days before your date. Midnight GMT.

This gives us some time in case for a reason someone fails to send something in.

Who to send your entry to?

Nadia, mexicant, Moriath, SusanBones or Hes.

All entries are hosted on Livejournal, so in case you have a LJ, you are welcome to join/friend the community and you will receive the entries each day on your friends page.

LJ community.

If you don't have an LJ, don't worry, all entries will be public.

Have a festive December!

Ooh, I forgot about this - I would really like to do this, and it looks like I may be first!

Hmm, can I have the 18th, please?

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar 2009

Yello! I've not been here for a bit, but I want to contribute as I did last year, so can I have maybe the 14th? Unless there are objections, in which case can I have the 17th?

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar 2009

Would you extend the calendar till January 6th and therefore include Epihpany? That's a very popular holiday in Spain, since traditionally it's the Three Kings, and not Santa Claus who brings presents to children.

Madrid, March 11th, 2004. WHO DID IT?

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar 2009

Yay! Cos Holiday Calender! I've never done this before; I am taking the plunge this time. *gulp*

I'll take Dec 16th, please.

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar 2009

I'd like the 12th please. May I also note that the calendar you are using is not the 2009 calendar?

I am excited! I've been thinking about my entry for the past month.

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar 2009

In an attempt to not destroy the whole table, I only changed the days of the week to their right spot now. So the calendar still appears in a little unusual way, but is correct.

ETA: I was brave and fully fixed it now.

Re: CoS Holiday Calendar 2009

Hmmm...this sounds like fun! I have no talent in art or video making or anything so maybe I'll write a short Christmas-related fanfic?

Anywho...sign me up for the 17th!
