Cemetech Contest #21, Holiday Celebrations, 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)
