It's impossible to have a game with kids who are not going to be excited on holidays. Players may join or not as they choose. And we do have a Mr. and Mrs. Claus, elves, Jack O'Lantern, we help Grey Slate craft a menorah... :)
We don't want player so say for example "I'm a Christian" or "I'm a unicornsist," or whatever... (just grabbed those off the top of my head as being the most common things I see in profiles.) Basically it isn't anyone else's business.
I try to keep them from bringing up the religious aspect of the holiday, and keep it to candy, and trick or treating, parties... that type of thing. Same as with Christmas and Easter... It's happy Holliday! Celebrate the holiday season, not specifically the actual holiday or reason for the holiday itself, that they may do off game. :)
Hopefully that makes sense. :S *laughing out loud!*
I will try to hit the servers on Saturday and give marshmallows, rotten tomato's for throwing, and a spider to the kids for fun! They can sell them, drop them or whatever they want... *laughing out loud!*
