Wonderful pictures everyone!

Dan's traditions involving cake and gingerbread seem right up my street  :(y)
I may have to forgo the Christmas Toilet-roll stealing Elf this year though!

As for XanderX's picture, I just hope there's no political message in your photo, with a dragon eating the party representatives.  :(y) :(y)

Thanks for sharing glh...for a second I though you made candles out of your kids  :))

A very festive music too. I don't think we have much like that anymore here in the UK.

How long did it take you to put all those photos of your family together?

It's also impressive you've got a different festive jumper in each photo  :(y) :(y) ;D

Found some time today to move onto the next Shenanigan!

3) Share a photograph of your favourite Carcassonne Tile and Meeple


For the standards sets my favourite is any single edge C tile and the double meeple.

Going to throw in an extra one in just for fun. These are for variants! I love the German Cathedrals and what they bring to the game. Also like my little metal meeple knights, (from an Indigogo campaign).

Franks

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

1) What are your Top Festive Criteria?

Apart from the Christmas tree, the gifts for our beloved ones are the classic must haves for us.  And who better to watch over those gifts than the cutie-pie animals my girlfriend crocheted.  This year, the Sheep and the Donkey -let's call them totally random Blackie the Sheep & Dan the Donkey- got some extra company by Pip the Pinguin.

3) Share a photograph of your favourite Carcassonne Tile and Meeple

Here, Blackie and Pip are showing of my favorite Tile and Meeple of the moment.  That Dragon, well, that's some nice massive chunky piece of wood and that city over another city...only in Carcassonne something like that is possible.

6) Share a photograph of a festive meeple

Why limit myself to 1 meeple if Blackie the Sheep and Dan the Donkey could make the whole Christmas story complete?  Joseph and Mary, little Jesus in his crib, the shepherd, the white angel, the 3 wise men from the east who brought gold, myrrh and forgot the incense and...especially...that strange looking unidentified intruder from the west with a pint in his one hand and some scale model of himself in his other hand...well, seems KJW got his ideas right out of the Christmas story-book, if you ask me!

I don't have a picture for this :( but I think it would be cool if someone made a light up meeple for the top of a Christmas Tree!

That Travelling Dan sure does get around and now what with his new found interest in time travel he has gone back in time to the nativity! Who'd have thunk it.

Lovely pics Thodekey and great work by your good lady :)

I missed franks photos. They're great. A well balanced tile makes the perfect Christmas Tree ornament.  I'm a fan of those indiegogo meeple too, though they dont get as much action as they deserve.

I'm not sure about that abbot on a labyrinth tile though...not many points :D
