A new DCC? :O

But this one is written with such excitement and happiness; where is the negativity I seek to spread?
It's because we must kick off the Christmas with a blast, that the DCC is cheerful right now. It's holiday season, after all. I can't believe it's in 3 more days. And oh boy. Many Greninjasks at the same time.

Currently I was aiming for bigger post counts because I was aiming to get a blog in here because it takes 5,000 posts to be able to use it. Even though, I want to do it with my own pace though, because it's no good if I force it too hard.
I remember wanting to try and reach 5,000 posts for a blog, but I ended up getting a blog before even hitting that mark due to being supporter. And yeah I decided to not do a traditional Christmas avatar/sig theme this year and opted for Elsa for a change.

I mean, I can't have the same boring theme every Christmas can I?

Yep, like Christmas theme dominates everything today lol
Variations are nice so that we won't be bored, so that's nice Hika.

Btw, in my case, I didn't using any Christmas theme except for a merely simple texts in my sig a year ago that I've decided to use it now. I was a heavy noob a year ago

When I was a noob, my signatures used to suck. Not anymore!

And yeah, Elsa is really beautiful. I've heard that Frozen is said to be a really good movie.

How do Australians celebrate Christmas? I'd be weirded out if it was summer during Christmas.

Well, down here in Australia we usually celebrate the food part similar to most other countries but yeah sometimes Australians like to have a swim at the beach given how hot it gets here during summer. I also like to look at pics of snowflakes, ice and other winter stuff just to take my mind off the heat given how much I sweat right now.

Plus, there's always those kids who love visiting those department store Santas. Westfield, which is one of the biggest shopping mall chains in the country, have very beautiful decorations up during the Christmas period.

You didn't forgot that I'm celebrating Christmas without any snowy gimmicks or everything right? (except for the decors) Everything is hawt in tropical area like Indonesia. The malls have already set up many Christmas tree, and not to tell, Christmas songs are playing around as well ever since some weeks ago, and the Santa will show up at malls too.

I'd imagine how boiling hot it'd be over there for you Windy, having a Christmas during summer like me often causes me and my fellow Australians to find a way to make it interesting. In fact, in Australia right now, a commercial for the German-originated supermarket chain Aldi depicts these people dressed as Santa and riding on surfboards.

There's even a song by the Australian children's performing group Hi-5 which sings about Santa wearing shorts. What a way to reference the Australian summer that we have during Christmas!

Hi-5? I missed that show already, I haven't watching it for years now due to my current age, but I still like that show. And yeah, that's interesting indeed to see Santa wearing shorts. Usually he's wearing a red jacket or clothes for me.

I used to watch their show when I was little, but the group has been changing lineups so often as of late I like completely forget it every single time. But yeah, I did watch a bit of some Christmas stuff last night, Australian TV usually loves getting a bit happy with Christmas-themed shows around this time.

And then after this there's New Year's Eve, if one doesn't know already my home city of Sydney has one of the biggest fireworks displays in the world. They always love to put more effort into the fireworks every year, and funnily enough it's not going to be broadcasted on a major commercial channel this year but on the ABC instead. I wonder how the ABC's lack of commercial advertising will make the experience different.

I've seen the firework fest in your area Hika, since 2 years ago, and it was intense, I like it. I just hope this year's firework fest will be much better than what I see before, even though it's broadcasted on ABC. Not to mention that one or two of the major news channel in my country showcases many New Year firework fests too (and Sydney is among one of them).

Duuuuude, Aldi was the shiz back in Carolina. They beat everyone's prices on next to everything!

I had absolutely no idea they were a super popular international chain. That boggles my mind!

I have an Aldi in my town in Ohio. I go there every month to purchase Tomato Soup, Milk, Tuna & Apple Cider. Except, Aldi isn't a supermarket, so they don't have 2305209348208 things Walmart has.

Aldi has been heavily expanding in Australia the last 12 years. In fact, they now have way more stores here now then they did in 2001 when they first broke into Australia. I don't trust their products though, I have something against "generic" brands.

I don't see Aldi in my country yet, but my country have some equivalent stores like hypermart (yep, the lowercase on h is intentional), Giant, Carrefour, and Indomaret, among all things. And I personally prefer buying the well-known products more than their own products for some reason.

Aldi has expanded a lot in the UK recently too. The only thing i'ev ever bought from there was a big bottle of peach schnapps.
It was pretty good considering it was a £5 bottle of schnapps.

Unrelated: I now have a nice colorful name.

I have a thing against generic brands of food, It's because I think they'll taste bad.

And wow congrats on the supportership Somniac! Green looks kinda sexy on you.

My post count exploded this year -- from about 1800 to what it is now and who knows what it'll be by year's end xD Yeah, I know I'm reaching towards an old topic but who cares xD

And Somniac, congratulations :) It does fit you quite well.

Whenever I post in here with one of the few black names I feel so down. I know labels don't matter as much as quality, but still.

Funnily enough, the green italics have grown on me so much I find it hard to look back on a screenshot of my name when it was blue, or heck even when it wasn't italic or colored or anything. Plus, it seems like all my profile designs are taking advantage of supporter perks these days.

I was working toward 5,000 posts, too, until Dipu decided be to awesome and give me the supportership he won. My memory hates me and I didn't know him real well, so I'm having trouble remembering, but I think it was Mr. X who put the supportership up in the first place.

The operator symbols look a little funky like this, but I don't mind. I'm used to having a green/italicized name, so it would seem weird otherwise.
