EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT : SEVEN DAYS OF CHRISTMAS !
Happy Christmas and happy holidays to everyone at OFC! It is officially Christmas Eve in rp time, and in order to give everyone enough time for holiday celebrations before the plot drop, we are extending Christmas Eve and Day into a week-long extravaganza! Many different things will be happening, from parties to galas to festivities that you won’t want to miss! Christmas will last from TODAY, JUNE 22nd until THURSDAY, JUNE 29th. Threads can take place on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day ( December 24th and 25th, 1979 ) during this time, you don’t need to wait for a certain day during the week to do Christmas Day threads, you can just do them!
The Boxing Day Plot Drop will be happening on FRIDAY, JUNE 30th, once Christmas week is over, so keep an eye on the main for more information about that! We’re very excited to share this event with you, and enjoy the holiday before the plot drop happens!
Looking for ideas for what to do over the holiday? Here are a few suggestions!
