Happy Holidays from deviantART!  :santa:


We're preparing the tree, unpacking the ornaments and lights, and humming our favorite carols.  But, something seems a little off.  Some of the holiday magic is missing, and we need your help to bring it back.  Join us in decorating deviantART's Holiday Headquarters by adding some of your own holly and jolly to the festive atmosphere!

How can you help?  :rudolph:


We want Holiday Headquarters to look and feel as festive as possible and we're asking you to put on your creative thinking cap to make the magic come alive with your artistic touch.  We're hoping for an outpouring of seasonal comments!

Here are a few ideas for how you can contribute:

Creating a comment drawing in deviantART muro

Sharing the story of your favorite seasonal memory

Linking to holiday deviations that depict the spirit of the holidays

Posting the list of items you hope Santa will leave under the tree

Posting your favorite holiday themed plz account(s)

Throwing snowballs at fellow deviants (hint: use :iconsnowballleftplz: and :iconsnowballrightplz:)

Think outside of the box!  "Wow" us with your holiday cheer!


What's in it for you?  :xmas:


It just wouldn't be the holidays without a little gift giving!  We'll be awarding presents to deviants who show the most holiday cheer, interpret this challenge in a creative way, or generally stand out in a positive manner.  You have the opportunity to receive super-fantastic-ultimate deviantART swag, with items you can find nowhere else!  

These presents include:

Gifts of Points, Premium Memberships, and Super Group upgrades

$20.00 gift cards to Dick Blick


Decorated holiday stocking, filled with various goodies from Ayame-Kenoshi

Handmade holiday ornament by LaurenKitsune


Items found in and around Heidi's desk

Special phone call with deviantART's entire Marketing team

More to come!

Is there a special gift that will motivate you to participate in this holiday event?  Let us know and perhaps it'll be added to the list of goodies!



1.  Head over to Holiday Headquarters (Comments left in this journal will not be eligible for gifts.  To be eligible, your comment(s) must appear on Holiday Headquarters.)

2.  Leave a festive comment to help spread holiday cheer.

3.  There's a chance you'll be rewarded for your efforts!


We'll be awarding presents from now through the end of the year, so there's lots of time for you to participate!

It's not much, but since I got a tablet for Christmas, I am going to surprise a few people, who have been helping me out immensely, with some art of their favorite characters/pairings. Also, I am doing some fanart for some stories I really like and surprising them with it.:)

It was the 26th so I doubt this counts but my Grandmother rescued a sweet, abandoned puppy from some kids that were shooting firecrackers at it and it was getting kicked. Said puppy is now a part of the family and so sweet. <3


I hope everyone has had a great Holiday season and all the best for the new coming year. :iconsantalaplz:

It is true. Giving is much more fun than anything else.
Buy myself a premium membership: 'Yo, well, now I have another one.'
Donate a random person the needed points for a pm (doubled! thanks to the christmas offer) and see their reaction: AWESOME
That was better than the presents I got for christmas :love:

In this sense:

It's not completely amazing but it took me more than 12 hours to put this together for all of my friends on deviantART. Along with the characters of the show South Park, there are a few deviants and their OCs. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and happy any-other-holiday-you-may-celebrate. Love you guys. :heart: :santa:

A memory...Well, Here in México we do celebrate christmas and such, but in my family there´s a lot of traditions, and well, We do not really beleive in Santa...Anyway, we celebrate, at least what is suppossed to be the birth of the saviour, so once, we gathered the whole family together! My granny, and some aunts, along with my older cousins and my mother (the women of the family) were all in the kitchen, cooking dinner, and the boys were busy in the garden making it ready for the event, we must have been about 30 people in the house's garden, with big tables, many chairs and plenty of food to share! there we were, my parents and brother, my 6 aunts and uncles, their children (my cousins!! =D) and some pets..oh and guests too! Well, that day no one said a bad word, there were no fightings, no sadness, my brother and I were awake up until 2-3 am (that was a big deal back then XD)! and the night, was truly beautiful! we could just look up and see the starry sky above us...we all stayed in the same house to sleep, so, it was pretty much a mess, but it was worth it, sleeping in top of others XD! ...I must have been, like, 14 years old...We all still remember it...Yep, that´s the best christmas I´ve ever had...We all got presents, dinner and a nice warm full of love place to sleep =,)

when i was a kid, i remember i went to see santa in the mall. when i went to tell him what i wanted i told him all i wanted was to fit in. he said it would come in time, it didnt but i realized fitting in is overrated. im happy not to fit in because it brings some light into your world and shows different perspectives.
