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!

I've used DrawNames.com for gift giving on SM. I thought it worked well.

Has anyone else played Gartic Phone? It's a mash up of sorts of the old telephone game & Pictionary. Works best w/groups of 8 - 10 people, I would say.
