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?
