Ho ho ho!

Once again it's time to dress up and show off those festive avatars.

Add an item to this list showing off your festive avatar.

Please also include your festive avatar in the item comments, so that we can still see what it looks like after you've gone back to your normal avatar. To do this, once you've uploaded your festive avatar, r-click on it in your avatar block and select 'Copy Image location' (Firefox) or 'Properties' (Internet Explorer), then use the URL in the 'Insert external image' widget.

Thumb your favourite(s)!

On the 23rd December, prizes will be awarded as follows:

1st prize (by number of thumbs): 20
2nd prize: 10
3rd prize: 5
4th + 5th: 2.5
My favourite entry: 5
Mrs W's fave: 5
8 random prizes: 1 each
Last entrant prize: 5
Every entry: a thumbsup and a geekpenny!

Any tips received will also go into the prize pot!

Finally, if changing avatars seems like a bit of a faff, why not give these suggestion threads a thumb and a comment:

"Hot swappable" avatars! (by Nazhuret)
Could we please load avatars from our personal galleries instead of uploading each time? (by tommynomad)

Edit 1: Added extra prizes thanks to generous tipping!

A Gren Fox in lieu of Miss Turtle Artist's fox

My current avatar is a painting by my daughter, Miss Turtle Artist.

I gave Mr. Fox the hat.

I think he needs snow as well - hopefully the kind geek who did snowy avatars last year will do so again this year!

Once Chanukah is over, I'm going to change it to this:

It took me about 3 hours to figure out how to animate images in GIMP. Part of that time was spent in shutting down and restarting my laptop, then giving up and borrowing my wife's new computer that has more memory and processing power. The end result is a shot of my congas and banjos wrapped in flashing Christmas lights. Here is a larger photo of the image.
