    I had a fun idea and thought to share it with you all to see who might be interested in being a part of it. It's a xlights version of Secret Santa. Its very simple to play!

    1. If you wish to join in and be a part of Secret Santa, reply to this thread and include your xlights files before 31st July 2019

    2. I'll use a online Secret Santa generator to draw the names for everyone. I will then send you a link of the persons name that was selected for you.

    3. Grab the persons xlights files from this thread and sequence a Christmas song of your choice on their layout.

    4. Maybe we can do a reveal of the sequences we created late November on this same thread to share. Don't forget to share the files so your "giftee" can use it on their display. After all, it is a Secret Santa!

    So what do you ladies and gents think? Sorry if this has been done before. If there's another person who has started a Secret Santa, please tag me in the thread so I can be a part of it!

    sounds like a really good idea only the time frame is way too short

    Didn't see anything about time frame. Only that you need to provide your house layout in xlights by end of the month so the person who gets to do your sequence can do so on your layout. :)

    Glad you worked out the "rules" Drakky. Can everyone either inbox your files to me, or reply to this post with the files. Either way is fine. I'll list them in a reply on this post at the end of the month so they can be found in one place. You will also get a inbox from me at the end of the month, revealing who's display you will have to sequence. I think it'll be alot of fun!

    Do you use Dropbox, or any other cloud storage / online file storage provider service? It pretty simple to share a link of the files?
