12 Days of PlayStation Home Christmas

[ Edited ]

As Christmas is upon us and you are starting to feast upon Mince pies and drinking port or whatever takes your fancy, listening to Christmas songs and carols. I feel it be a good time to get into the festive spirit on these Home boards too.

 

I have seen the community really start to blossom and become a lovely place around these Home parts lately, which is really lovely and nice to see. I feel the Christmas period would be a great excuse to get together as a community once more and further enhance the community spirit into even more greatness!

 

I'm sure you are all fully aware of the 12 Days of Christmas song and if not, shame on you! Do not fear either way though, as here is a YouTube reminder and to help you get into the mood Disney style:

 

 

 

As a reminder to the order of the 12 days of Christmas:

 

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords a Leaping
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids a Milking
7 Swans a Swimming
6 Geese a Lying
5 Gold Rings
4 Colly Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

So the challenge for all of you, is to simply use your imagination and creativity within PlayStation Home to take a screenshot with a unique PlayStation Home take on each one of those. We can then all vote on our favourite entry using Kudos and by the end of the whole challenge we will have 12 awesome images to represent 12 Days of Christmas, PlayStation Home style :D

 

Challenge #1 - DONE!

Post a screenshot of your Home version of a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

A Colly bird is a blackbird.

 

In England a coal mine is called a colliery and colly or collie is a derivation of this and means black like coal.

 

Common misconception that the song goes "calling birds".  Trust me, it's Colly birds.  Now no more corruption of our beautiful English language :p

Okay, I believe you! I always thought it was "calling birds" myself but, when you put it like that, it has to be true!

lol on that note, when you listen to "Push it" by Salt N Pepper, once you realise it sounds like poo s*** you can't hear the right lyrics ever again.

 

Also:

 

♫ Hey I just met you... and this is crazy but chumbawumba just stole my baby. ♫

Next Challenge is now up btw guys.

 

I'm now looking for your version of "Two turtle doves".

 

Portray it in any way you sit fit then post the screenshot in this thread and once again we will have the community vote using kudos for the picture to represent us all for PlayStation Home 12 days of Christmas.

 

The numbers will naturally increase with each challenge as per the Christmas song, so you most likely find it more beneficial if you use this as a great opportunity to help one another get the ideal screenshot rather than go lone soldier.

 

It's community challenge with an emphasis on community :Thumbs:

Just click it and enjoy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjaZNYSt7o0

Of course the first one needs the words changed to "Alan Partridge in a pear tree"

Turtle doves are looking good above too, nice to see plenty of Christmas in that pic!

Fritches, your musical taste is getting more and more concerning: S Club 7, DJ Otzi,  Vengaboys...! You're nearly as bad a Fury... ;)
