    Thank you to everyone who donated boxes and helped me "deliver presents"!

    A special thank you to Lynne and Amber Witch for helping me decorate Magincia Garden. Amber and crew have done a lovely job maintaining the garden and I look forward to working with them on future holiday displays.

    A special thank you to Brackus who helped me create the Town Guard Display at Castle British.

    Yes, now you can dress up like a savage!

    (You might want to start carrying around savage kin paint and make a macro to change your gear if you wanted to RP it.)

    The idea of "delivering presents" all started with this shirt. I thought it would be a cute decoration for the garden. Then I realized there were so many more empty gift boxes just waiting to be filled.

    So thank you, Nicholas Tarrant! Your bare chest was such an inspiration.

    Thank you so much! I drove back home today (two day total of 20 hours) I could not wait to see what the good folks of Baja were up to, so I took a quick shower & jumped on Stratics. It was a great homecoming. Happy belated Yule Tide and New Year to all!

    I want to say that if you didn't get a present it's not because you were bad or intentionally left out. Being new to the shard EM Godiva asked a few of us for names and there were many that I knew I couldn't think of. During that time period I was not home and rarely in game. My mind was focused on my son and little else to be honest.

    For those of you that felt excluded please accept my apology. I've already started a list of names for next year should it be needed.

    I think most of the female population on Baja would kill me if he did.
