^_^ Happy Thanksgiving, and welcome to trigun_holidays. ^_^ All you need to know is in the userinfo. Also, you can begin posting at any time and you don't have to post every day unless you want to (and you want to win the award graphic.)

If you're not familiar with the idea of the Advent Calendar from Neopets and such, the idea is of a countdown to the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Diwali/insert holiday of your belief where you get a gift every day from Thanksgiving to the day after Christmas or the New Year. You also don't have to be a friend of or even know me or like me to join: everyone is welcome.

The theme of this community is similar, except that we are all givers and we are all recipients of others' gifts. The challenge, if you wish to take it, is to write one drabble/pentadrabble a day, minimum 100 words and maximum 500 depending on how much you wish to write, from Thanksgiving to Christmas Day or New Year's, whichever you prefer, based on the themes given here. ALL pairings and ratings are welcome, and if you miss a day, you may post up to four days' back drabbles in one post.

The only rules are to be nice, have fun, and enjoy the drabbles. ^_^

(Note on the themes: I personally arrive from a Christian background, so I will be listing Christmas themes for some themes. If you don't wish to write about Christmas, feel free to substitute a holiday of your choosing as long as the theme is somewhere close to what is given. For example, you might substitute "Happy Hanukkah/Chanukah" or "Happy Holidays" or "Solstice" for "Merry Christmas," as a theme) I also want originality on at least some of the themes, because nothing makes people happier than a surprise.
