So the holiday season has begun.¹ I have been thinking about the Spoutans who are or will be on their own during this time.²

¹ At least, the retailers and the media tell us so.
² Something someone said made me think about this.

Many years ago, on Google+, we had various different things that we did to let people know that they weren't really on their own.³

³ We had some contests, some fun online games, and we also did a whole Secret Santa thing via Amazon and a couple of other online retailers.

So, what do Spoutans think about doing some things like this here on Spoutible?⁴

⁴ This is already such a great community; I'm sure between us all we can come up with some fun and whalecoming things to do!

Please comment and share this thread.⁵ I'll bet there are some great ideas out there!⁶

⁵ And although a whole big collective thing of course would be fun, also, please reach out to your own close Spoutible friends.
⁶ There are no bad ideas!

Thread End (for now)

I love this idea. How about a splashtag for people alone to check in and chat on Thanksgiving? I'll be alone that day, and it would be nice to check in where other alone people are, not the oh dear I'm cooking for twelve spouts, nice but not fitting into a lone day. Something like #notAlone ?

Is there a holiday hashtag that could be set for people to check in on - even if it’s just for connection, or coordination of anything.

Using this # could be a place for everyone to share holiday memes, pictures of holiday trees/decorations, holiday movie clips, holiday cards, pics of gifts, holiday gifs (like this one), etc.
