To celebrate the holiday season, `BlissfullySarcastic and I decided to run 2 chat events this month for the emote community. The first was held on Friday 21st, 9PM GMT and the next on Saturday 22nd, 4PM GMT to help open up the event to people living in different areas of the world.

Participants were challenged to find 13 of presents hidden around the #WeEmote page. By arranging them to fill the slots on a given sheet, the letters on each present spelt out the link to a file hidden on Sta.sh.
You can find a copy of the finished sheet here: [link coming soon]
To complete the Treasure Hunt deviants had to upload their finished sheet to Sta.sh . They then had to follow the link and leave a comment on the hidden deviation to their completed sheet.
The first 3 deviants to complete the challenge would win special prizes. In addition, any deviant who completed the challenge by a set time were entered into a raffle and two random winners were picked.
