Holiday Contest 2022

Hey guys! We have had many adventures. We went to space, had matches between users, traveled to the center of the earth, solved unsolved crimes and many other innumerable adventures.

But something is missing… what could it be?

If you were thinking about money, you were right. But that's what we all lack, so it doesn't count. What I was thinking is that it's party time!


The year is ending and we've only had a total of… one contest! Yes, we have very intense contests, but we can't always go full throttle. So here's the theme:


Okay, it's a really general term, but we'll limit ourselves to holidays marked by the calendar. It's a really broad term, but here we will limit ourselves to holidays marked by calendar. This includes both universal holidays such as Christmas and Halloween, or national holidays such as Independence Days and Sinulog. And you are not limited to real-life holidays, you can also write about fictional ones. I'm sure in TFACs like Zaraguas, or places like Tlaneyanco or the Nexus-14 they have their own unique traditions. Or maybe even off-Earth.

The specific purpose is to write an article where the holiday is the most important thing. It can be either about the holiday itself, or about a situation that involves it to a great extent. What we want is for this not to be a limitation and for you to relax while writing it.

Questions and Answers

1. Could a wedding or baptism qualify as a holiday?
These are holidays, but not calendar holidays. You can write about these events, but the article has to focus on annual festivities. No, your uncle getting married every year does not make it valid.

2. I'm kind of lost, is there a list or something like that?
Due to the diversity of cultures in the world, it is somewhat difficult, but this list might help you in the Hispanic field. Remember that there are many more and you will have to do some research if you want to explore other cultures.

3. I have seen that there are holidays that are very similar, like Christmas and Yule, or Halloween and Samhain. Is that a bad thing?
While there are holidays that are derived from others, the surrounding culture transforms them into something totally different. It is not a bad thing, and you can choose any variation you want.

4. I have concerns about whether my idea would qualify for the contest.
The contest organizer, morhadowmorhadow, will be looking over the ideas and is open to questions on both Wikidot and Discord.
