The Community's Advent Calendar - The lost days


Because of size restrictions for articles on the Community platform, I had to remove the first days of the Community's Advent Calender 2018  

Here they are again:



For children, Christmas is the greatest time of the year. Everything is so exciting, sweets and toys around every corner - even adults think back to their childhood in these days.


@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_'s Friday Fun of August 2018 is about Childhood toys

Do you remember your best-loved toy? Say hello to penguins, teddy bears, robots, old-fashioned computers and books - maybe they remind you on your childhood - tell us more about your favourite toy! Do you still have it?  

What's on top of your children's wishlist today? Penguins, Teddy bears, robots, high class computers (which will be old fashioned computers in a few years) and books? Or something else? I'm curious.

Seven differences on December the 7th - should not be too hard to find. But this one is a really difficult puzzle posted by @Fadoua in February.


Can you spot all the differences? Good luck and post your success in the comments (but please, not the solution. give the others a chance to find them on their own)!

Today is Nikolaus day, In Germany, children of all ages, even adult ones, believe that  good old Nikolaus is coming to their door and put something sweet into the shoe, which they put outside the door the evening before. And usually, Nikolaus is reliable, Often, he is also visiting our desks and leaves some chocolate there. In our company, we have a very failsafe boss, aahm Nikolaus I wanted to say Nikolaus...

Enjoy your chocolate today, but do not forget the daily fun:


@Mirek posted Magic Eyes in May - this is a mindblowing Friday Fun post containing moving wallpapers, argues about blue and black or gold and white, spinning dancers and many more illusions. You won't trust your eyes, it's as if you've seen the real Nikolaus in your office - ♫ It's just an illusion ♫ 

Enchant us with your magic eyes - do you know any more illusions? Let us know!

It's still enough time for crafting some Christmas gifts. Need ideas? 


@Meg Holbrook asked for our creativity and many people answered with photos of their work

Maybe we should open a shop with all our creative things: pens, paintings, pullovers and even jewellery, boats and beds.

What do you spend your time with? Show us your best pieces of work and make a photo before you hide it in wrapping paper!

It's not May 4th, but December 4th - There are a lot of Star Wars fans among us.  Or is Kirk the captain of your choice? Anyway, on May, 4th (obviously),  @Steve Thornhill asked for your best Star Wars parodies


I'm sure, you know more than the already posted ones. We are desparately waiting for your comments!

Wanna peek at someone else's desks? Well, here you can. 

Have you ever had a real tortoise on your desk? Or at least stuffed tacos (one to eat, one to cuddle with)?


Some of us have real cats or glass fishes on their table or so many balloons that you just can't work. Some of us work in the garden, some of us on a cow's pasture. Some of us have even little gardens in their offices.

@Meg Holbrook asked us to show our office gardens and pets in July 2018.

Take part in the desk contest: Mirror, mirror on the wall: which one's the fairest of them all? Show us your desk! Now!

In October 2017 we played the game "Two Truths and a Lie" - Do you know this game? You have to tell us three facts about yourself. One of them is totally nonsense. But the others are just pretending to be wrong - A great opportunity for telling extraordinary facts about you and come up with something, you may have always dreamt about but yes, is a lie.


Learn about TV carreers, literature, singers, sharks, unusual marriages and baby contests. What are your truths and lies? We are curious, tell us about them!
And don't worry, Santa is of course no lie - He's real, I know it. As there is Level 9... The Truth is out there...

Fun came officially to our Community on the 25th of August in the year 2017.  On that day, our Community-Queen @Monique vdB posted the first Friday-Fun discussion: Post a selfie.


You can see great selfies from Atlassians and Community Champions there - and a few more. There are stars, games and cats, Mickey Mouse and Summit haircuts and even giant chickens... Which one do you like best? Why not post your own selfie? The thread is not closed yet  :-)  

This has been the beginning of a long series of Friday-Fun posts - a great idea for getting to know each other and form a real Community. And the fun continues up to now, every Friday, again and again.

I managed to miss half of these while counting down, but reading them all in one go just now has made me laugh a lot!

Thanks @Thomas Schlegel
