Cemetech Contest #21, Holiday Celebration!, is all about the celebration of holidays! You can submit any program, in any language, for any platform. Holidays can be anything fairly widely recognized in any country, on any calendar (but please don't make up your own holiday); examples include Boxing Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Guy Fawkes Day, Bastille Day, etc.

General
This can be a program or game, in any language, for any platforms, celebrating a holiday. Be creative! You cannot copy or use part of any other programs, and no program previously published is eligible; this has to be entirely new. You can choose how exactly you celebrate your holiday. There cannot be any inappropriate content, or any content that discriminates against others. This contest is open to all Cemetech users, whether you’re a contestant or a voter. Voting will be done in a separate thread, and not in this one.

Submitting
Submit your entries through email (contest at this website’s domain). Submit it in the same format as you would upload the file to the Cemetech archives. In the ReadMe, please include a contest specific section that includes the language it’s written in and the platform it was written for, and for the optional screenshot(s), include them in the submission itself. (If you need help getting screenshots, you should post in this thread). All entries must be in by 11:59 PM EST on the due dates outlined below. You may only submit one entry. (If you want to submit an update to your entry, PM either jcgter777 or jonbush, and re-email your submission)

Development
Please create a thread to document your progress with the title format "CC21: <username>". You are allowed to receive help for this particular contest, provided that it is done publicly on either the forums, or on SAX/IRC. If you receive help from someone, make sure to give them credit!

Contest Timeline
The contest will begin on February 20 and end on March 20. *New* Voting will (hopefully) start March 21, and end on March 31.

Other
If there happens to be a tie, 3 judges will be selected to break it. To be a judge, you cannot have been part of the contest, and you must PM either jcgter777 or jonbush with your application, including your background and why you should be a judge. The two (or maybe three) tied entries will be voted for by how well constructed they are, their program size and efficiency, and other factors.
So you just have to create a random program/game related to any holiday? Sounds fun! Smile
Ooooh, this sounds fun!!! maybe i'll participate :3
Does it have to be a US national holiday, or can it be a holiday celebrated somewhere in the world? Can you make up your own holiday?
Try keeping the holiday real. It can be from anywhere! Smile

I'm glad to see lots of people trying this! Smile
I might try this...

EDIT: Now that I see the deadline, I think I will.

EDIT 2: I am participating... see CC21:The REAL LAX18

If you have a thread, it's hard for someone to do the same thing, since there are timestamps. If you really don't want to, just make a post in this thread indicating that you are participating. Smile

Hmm... I may or may not join, depends on time/ another project.
Sounds interesting! I might do this... Is there a list of what holidays are taken?

At least I have actually accomplished something instead of filling up the thread with my BS Razz


Let's actually work on projects, and stop, as imgur calls it, "****posting".

I thought that it’d be cool to make my own contest, so I made this, with help from Kerm and jonbush on IRC (and on the original documents for this). Although I (we) have all the ideas, dates and such for this contest, there aren’t prizes Sad. We could have not had them, but it wouldn’t be as motivating for contestants Sad. I would try to make trophies out of wood, but my mom wouldn't let me do that type of thing and mail it somewhere else Sad If you have any ideas/things to give out as prizes, I’d (we’d) really appreciate it! Very Happy If you have any suggestions, please post below!

Yes. It is US holiday. (ish) Even if it isn't official, it counts.
Okay, can rebooting/ ram clearing be part of the program??

If it doesn't harm anyone's device, then yes. (But try avoiding it) I'm just curious why you'd use that.
