After such a brutal and tough year, I decided to host a "Secret Santa" for Habbo Defence Agency this Christmas. In case you don't know how it works, Secret Santa involves a person getting another person at random and then coming up with a gift for them and surprising them for Christmas; usually it is done with physical gifts but I added a twist. That's right! The twist is that HDA will be sending Appreciations instead of Gifts to end of this unprecedented year.
We've had around 40+ Participants + Founders who were part of the HDA Secret Santa. However, I have kept it a secret from the Founders because I want to surprise them for Christmas; they do so much for the Agency in the backstage and don't often get the appreciation they deserve so I hope this cheered them up and ended their year off on a high.
I was so happy at how many people were willing to get involved at the event because running Secret Santa usually is hard work and to make it worse, it's online. Before I post the Reveal, thankyou to everyone who participated in this and took part in making someone else's day a little better and heart-warming. This goes to show that HDA is like a family and we are all here for eachother under tough circumstances.
And to lastly address some of your questions, Yes I didn't take part in this despite running it because I'll know who had me :D (LoL). Honestly I had so much fun running this event and to see everyone's reaction and have their hearts warmed made my day and honestly made up for not taking part in the event as a receiver. Thankyou to you all for being who you are and I hope it doesn't change.
The Nice/Naughty List
If you've gotten this far of the Blog you may be wondering how come I had so many people. Well if you remember me saying I had secretly added the Founders into the event without them knowing; sooo technically we had about 8-9 people leftover and I didn't want to bother anyone to take another pair so I wrote for them.
PS: Some people did not like to be featured so their names are not on there, but I still hope you enjoyed reading your Appreciation - I know it didn't work as well as it should/could've but it's the first time I've tried something on a large scale like this so I would like to take this time to personally apologise.
To end of the blog, 2020 has been massive to all of us whether it's good or bad but in the end we've stuck together as a team and a family. May 2021 bring joy and be a blessing to all of us.
