Hello everyone, I was talking to one of my moderators about a month ago and he was asking me why don't we have holiday announcements. I never really gave it much of a thought but i decided to open a poll asking people if there would be interested in celebrating holidays on the forum, and it turns out that a lot of people really liked the idea. I so i decided to give it a try and it turns out that since we started celebrating holidays, specifically Thanksgiving we got almost 100 new users over a 3 day period. That's about 10 times more then usual.

Some tips to celebrate.
- Create a theme based on that holiday
- Hold holiday contests
- give holiday awards
- Think of other ideas be creative.

Here is a list of holidays that me and my staff came up with.

Nice advice. I find it's definitely a popular thing when a forum changes the style or what not after the holiday in question, although don't forget there are more countries than just the USA...
