Welcome, one and all, to the Gaia Community Discussion Christmas Party. This little user-run event is hosted by the good people of the GCD but is open for everyone and anyone who feels like participating.
Our event this year is held in remembrance of Alien 02, who was perhaps the most kind-hearted and loving Zurg of them all. We gather to celebrate 02's pure heart and generosity to others during his first- and last Christmas, and follow his example of selflessly giving and opening our hearts to Gaians during this holiday event. It's during this event that I hope many of you can find new friends, spread cheer to unsuspecting Gaians, and carry the collective Christmas spirit you find here with you into the new year; never forgetting that Alien 02 was as selfless as they come.
We'll have a lot of ways for users to enjoy and take part in the holiday festivities- from everyone's favorite event- Secret Santa, brought to you by the local Anonymous Benefactors, to dice, number generator, and art contests.
That said, feel free to sit back, have a glass of sparkling Zurg Energy Drink, and enjoy yourselves while adhering to the laws of the TOS.
Since Christmas is also a time to get your New Year's Resolutions ready, we'll continue to celebrate Alien 02's memory and wishes through the event by hosting a “Jingle Drive”. 02's New Year's Resolution wish wasn't about himself, but was a wish for his alien brother, 09 (Flarn), to be able to revert to the good little Zurg that he used to be, before his death and metamorphosis. 02's resolution was left unfulfilled, but together, we can call upon Santa in hopes that he'd find it it his jolly 'ol heart to assist us and the late Alien 02.
We'll be asking anyone generous enough to unselfishly put aside their own Christmas Wishes and New Year's resolutions, to gather with your fellow Gaians and give plea and petition to Santa to return Alien 09's heart to good, as it used to be, and dispel the Grinch within him.
