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)

It was pretty cool when the HomeAloners would post pix of the stuff the Secret Santas (who remained anonymous) had sent. There were some incredibly thoughtful and meaningful gifts shared.
In response to Lydia.
