Holiday Village

I have an ambition to institute a Holiday/Christmas village for the server.  Something like the Halloween town which was such a big success.

I know of a design for gift boxes.  It's like a tiny hut.  A number of them would be built.  Each player who wishes to participate would pick a box, lock the door, and put up a sign over the open window with his or her name.  The design has a chest inside, accessible only by the (locked) door.  Gifts are placed through a window, where you find a hopper which goes into the chest.  Thus, anyone can give you a gift, but only you can access it.  I would be willing to be responsible for creating a number of these.  Gifts can be anything, from valuable to simply useful.  Like a stack of cooked chicken for example.  Or a named gold block.  Or a piece of coal.  Or....just anything.

The idea would also include a big, decorated tree in the middle; perhaps a roller coaster and other rides; a Christmas Market similar to those found in European cities at this time, perhaps selling goods like banners, ornaments and fireworks.  Maybe a bar where we could all have a drink.  Whatever other builds people might be inspired to create.  A snowy biome would be best I think. 

I would need admin help to locate this build and designate a region post.  Also of course I don't propose to do all this building single handed.  I don't know if any kind of contest could or should be incorporated.  What does everyone think?

Moving forward

Well I ran it up the flagpole and some kind (and important) people saluted, so what's the next step, Trey?  I think we need a region post, hopefully in a buildable snow biome (if this isn't too much of a contradiction) and some announcements.  Yes?

WIP

Zorro, I won't keep ya in the total darkness about it. There is something a little in the works already for this. We haven't gotten too far in the planning though, give us a tiny bit more time and we'll let you know what's up!

thanks.

Does this mean I don't have to do any of the work?

Not happening?

I hear that someone or other is thinking about all this, but it is now December 10.  So.....nothing is coming about?  Something is coming about?  Anyone want to do this?
