The Schwippy Christmas Tree is back again! 2012 Edition.

For those of you who frequent Bungie.net around Christmas time every year, you may remember a certain phenomenon that sweeps through this community. Something that captured the hearts and souls of everyone who witnessed it for the past 6 years. I am pleased to inform you that once again, this legendary marvel will has come upon us. That thing that made us stay up until unreasonable hours waiting for cats to appear, that thing that some of us enjoyed enough to donate money to, that thing that so many of us love so dearly, has returned. I'm talking of course about the Schwippy Christmas Tree. For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, I'll break it down for you: The Schwippys are a family from somewhere in California that had the fantastic idea of posting a live webcam feed of their Christmas tree on their site and giving control of the lights to all the people who visited the page including us from Bungie.net. Essentially, they said "Here, play with our tree and watch it change." But the best part about the Schwippy Tree wasn't playing with light switches, it was talking to the Schwippys in the live chat, watching them chase thier cats around the house, and forcing them to write things on signs and hold them up to the camera for our entertainment. Yes, it is slightly creepy, but more than that, it is a damn good time. And on top of all that, they loved us. So that's the deal. The Schwippy Christmas Tree is up and running now for the 2012 season. Hopefully, starting the thread now will help contain the madness this year so that we don't overrun the forum again. Now I wont waste anymore of your time here is the link to the tree: [url]http://tree.schwippy.com/2012/[/url] Also, happy holidays.
