 - 1 more point if it’s a winter holiday
 - 1 more point if crafting is involved
 - 1 more point if physical activity is involved

 - 6 more points if the holiday is even better on year #2 (submit to the same BB thread for these points on year 2)
 - orchestrate the holiday to be fun for everybody
 - thread with lots of pics of the event
 - be the master of ceremonies
 - 3 hour minimum
 - at least 8 people for all events throughout the period
 - Needs 4 or more unique events/activities/traditions
