I'm in.


*It makes me smile knowing that this was a temporary forum we had set up a few years ago and it is still here! Surprised it is still labeled "temporary" though. I was a team leader back then, but life is way too busy for me to take that on again. (4 college courses + 1 online course + 3 kids under 7 + work + I'm a single mom) Oh and it was so frustrating with percentages, luckily KimL1214 was in charge and she was a great help!

I'm excited to start a new challenge!

Never tired this before but sounds like a great way to stay motivated. I'm in. Can't be team leader yet (buying house and finishing college).

Good start!
Sign ups end Friday, so we'll be starting soon.



If both DivineFidelity and I are team leaders that gives us two groups. Unless we get a flood of joiners, that sounds about right Might want a third team leader and group if this gets much bigger though.

So our group names? I could use a few suggestions
Animals - Arctic foxes, Adélie penguins, snowshoe rabbits?
Movies - Nightmare before Christmas, Home Alone, Elf?
Something else???

I would love to have a team name that has something to do with Penguins. They're one of my favorite animals. Perfect Penguins? Pretty Penguins? Idk, those both sound silly. lol

Or we could do something cute like one team be milk and one team be cookies, although that might become a temptation for some people so it's probably not a good idea.

Also, if you're thinking about more animals....Snow Leopards are gorgeous and majestic and I think that would be a good team name.

I'll brainstorm more later. =D

I need a kick in the butt, I've been stuck for awhile now and have been finding myself staying away from this forum... I hope this gives me the extra motivation I need!

Temptation, for sure. I thought of candy canes for a moment too, before I scratched them off my list .

I was trying to go with something winter themed since the snow fall in the US has already started, but then I discovered how hard that was to come up with. Snowflakes? O.o... Though I think the lack of wintery scenes down here in Florida really effect the imagination. For us, it's icicles lights off our roofs and strings of lights on our palm trees!

All I can think of is that Twelve Days of Christmas song with a little editing:
10 Leopards-a-Leaping
9 Penguins Dancing

But since we're pretty much global here, I guess "Winter" doesn't need to be a must .

I love the snow leopards too! I wrote Adélie penguins because I saw this guy - what a character! :

I'm in and I think the teams should be named after Santa's reindeer since it ends on X-mas Eve. Dasher? Blitzen? Dancer? Prancer? Donner? Vixen? Comet? Cupid? Even Rudolph. They're all pretty great.

Awwww zan that penguin is so adorable! Awesome. I know what you mean about not having much winter inspiration though....I don't get much of that here in Houston.
