    Jinglemas 2020

    There's truly no time like the holidays. What's better than copious amounts of food, quality time with family and friends, hearing the sweet sound of 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' on repeat, and unmanaged financial stress from our capitalist overlords?

    Gift exchanges of course!

    Groups Post - July 2016

    Groups Posts are a monthly group advertisement blog open to anyone who wants a signal boost. If you're interested in having your group advertised in one of these, send me a PM with the name of the group, a link to its front page, and a brief description of what the group is for. I'll copy this directly into the post, so write it like you're trying to tell other people about why they should join or pay attention to your group - anything up to around 150-ish words is fine.

    Haven't had as much of a response this month as past months, I'm sorry to say. Keep in mind that these are free and open to anyone, even if you've been advertised before. I just need a new PM every time you want your group to appear.

    Happy New Year, everyone. Hope the holiday season treated you well. I've got a good number of groups for you to check out, so let's get right to it.

    Groups Post - December 2015

    Alright, it's December. Now I can stop getting irrationally angry at the Santa Claus Coke cans that have already been in stores for weeks, and start getting rationally angry at how terrible everyone is at driving this time of year. Also there's a holiday coming up or something, Iunno.

    Groups Post - October 2015

    Welp, it's October, so it's finally culturally acceptable again to have a spooky skellington as your avatar picture (lookin' at you, Meeester)
    Also skulltrumpet videos as far as the eye can see, because what even is Halloween without skulltrumpet

    Now here's the somewhat embarrassing part - in a month, it looks like I've only been given three group submissions. Last month we had several times that, and interest has been pretty steady for awhile. This month, I've only got a total of three, and even going through my PM history doesn't turn up any I missed. If you did submit one, and it's not here, bug me about it ASAP and I'll get you added back on, but otherwise I'm just going to chalk this up to a slow month. Too many people getting ready for the SKELETON WAR to worry about what their groups are doing, I dunno.

Groups » Jinglemas 2021 · 5:05pm October 24th

Jinglemas is the annual tradition on Fimfiction to exchange stories around the holidays with users on the site. This single event allows all Fimfiction users to come together and celebrate the reason for the season. Ponies!

Enroll in this Secret-Santa-style gift exchange to request a holiday themed story, to be written secretly by another participant during the month of December. And in turn, you will be tasked with writing someone else's request. Then all the stories will be exchanged at Christmas! Simplicity itself! Thanks to the hard work of the Breezies, everyone will be ensured to get their gift!

For more event details, or if you are interested in becoming a Breezie, see the Event Rules our FAQ or join our Discord!

Hate to be this guy, but WE HAVEN'T HAD HALLOWEEN/NIGHTMARE NIGHT YET!!!

Looking forwards to helping out this year!

EdBoii #3 · October 24th · · 13 ·

It's not even November, bro.

5599520
It’s never too early to start the celebration!

Dude it isn’t even Halloween yet. One holiday at a time.

EdBoii #6 · October 24th · · 11 ·

It is. It's called October, my dude.

To everypony saying that they shouldn't be announcing this because it isn't Halloween/Nightmare Night yet:

If I'm honest, I feel your pain. I find it just as annoying when all of the Christmas/Hearth's Warming stuff starts being celebrated before Nightmare Night is over and done with. It feels like we're ignoring hundreds of other celebrations, and it drives me batty when ponies start talking about Hearth's Warming months before it happens.

But with Jinglemas, there is a good reason to make the announcement early. The whole thing takes so much effort to organise, and everypony who enters needs a good month to write their story. So I ask you, please don't be too hard on the ponies who make this thing happen each year, even if you're a little disgruntled. They have a lot of work to do to make sure everypony gets their presents this year.

Thank you. :pinkiesmile:

It took me a second to realize you weren't talking about the Mighty Gnome Overlord named the Mighty Jingles.

But we are close to it.

Come on you grouchy pants, where is your early jolly spirit?

Also, I am not going to apologize for the meme.

Thank you!
As much as I hate xmas stuff before Halloween, yes, this is necessary.

The schedule is a month to raise awareness of the event, enroll everyone, and organize assignments; which is a lot of work in and of itself! Then it's another month to give everyone time to actually write for the exchange in time for Christmas. And offsetting everything for the 25th of December lands us here, unfortunately.

Enrollment: Oct 24nd - Nov 24th
Writing: Nov 25th - Dec 24
Exchange: Dec 24 ~ 26th*

*Hisses Loudly*
IT'S NOT EVEN HALLOWEEN YET!!!

5599516 Time is fake and reality is an illusion. I’m celebrating Arbor Day as we speak.

Fluttershy, RD, Rarity, Pinkie, Twilight and Starlight look very surprised in the image :rainbowlaugh:


This looks fun

As much as I would love to join, I'm still getting the hang of writing stories. Maybe next year when I've gotten better at writing. Can't wait to see the stories when they're published though

Dang, I read the rules and FAQ and it’s supposed to be serious?

Meaning we can’t just write [name]’s story for fun while following their wanted tags and characters?

This Ought to be intesting.

Yeah, I've heard of Earlyween, but not Early-mas.

5599540
Then I shall apologize for my comment earlier

5599650
I dunno... I mean, they let me in.

5599654
I mean by serious it means "don't blow it off or treat it as a joke." But you should certainly have fun writing it. I mean, I think 3/4 of the stories I've done for Jinglemas have been comedies.

5599772
Hey, it's no issue. I just didn't want loads of ponies posting the same thing over and over again. *smirks* But feel free to continue moaning when Xmas gifts and decorations come out in the shops before Halloween stuff. Seriously, that does bug me.

It's not even Halloween yet!

I don't even know how this Jinglemas event works, I just joined FimFiction a few months ago

"It's Easter, and they already have the Christmas decorations out!!!"
Ha ha, I understand this is so people would have time to write a lengthier fic if they desire, just couldn't resist the Charlie Brown quote. Not really interested in entering, but looking forward to the entries! Thanks!
(Happy Early Holidays I guess?)

Im interested in joining! what do i do?
