Its that time of year again, when the game gods shine down upon us all..

What am I talking about you say?

Welll Winter-een-mas of course!

Are you asking yourself "what is this?" blink.gif


Winter-een-mas is a holiday of sorts. More specifically, it is a celebration of video games and the people that play them. Video games allow us to do things, go places, see stuff, that we couldn't do in real life. They can be an escape from reality, a release after a long day, a fun activity with friends, or just an enjoyable way to pass time. They give us a lot of entertainment. So why shouldn't they be celebrated?

When exactly is Winter-een-mas?

Winter-een-mas lasts for a whole week, which is always the very last week in January, the 25th through the 31st. The entire month of January constitutes the Winter-een-mas season, very similar to the "christmas season", where people begin to gear up for the holiday, and get into the spirit of things.


.... So gear up, Get ready, collect all those games together thats stockpiled from christmas you haven't been able to touch... And celebrate !

did you just make this up?
There is no God, no universe, no human race, no earthly life, no heaven,
no hell. It is all a dream, a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists
but you. And you are but a thought a vagrant thought, a useless thought,
a homeless thought,wandering forlorn among the empty eternities!

I think he has too much time on his hands heh.

But I think we should make it into a real holiday, part of some random religion.

Boss: why can't you come to work today?
Me: Religious holiday.. umm Winter-een-mas!
Boss: ok >___>


heh if only that would work...

No, no. Winter-een-mass is as real as you or me (assuming you're all real). It was created by the author of ctrl alt del comics. I'll try celebrating by attempting get back in to UT2004.

Happy Winter-een-mas Everyone!
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
