Over the years we tend to know each other (by sight) from our avatars as much as our names. From the forum daze to the rise of social, they've bee a part of one's online persona. One of the fun parts of that is watching how your friends/followers evolve over time or adapt them for various causes/holidays.

Which brings us to the current holidays approaching. Here on the Trail we started 'cheering up' people's avatars, just for fun, back in 2008 (see the original round here). What was just started on a whim to brighten up the web and spread holiday cheer, has now bee an annual ritual it would seem.

Here's some of the ones from this year so far (we'll add new ones as they happen);

Fun stuff huh? It's surely a good break from all this 'Art of War' stuff I've been cranking out here right? If you're interested in getting one done just track me down on Twitter or Facebook and we'll hook ye up (we do what we can with the time we have ok?).

At the end of the day, it is just a great excuse to spread some luv'n and make the web a brighter/friendlier place. And hey, I've already met some new peeps I didn't know before... it's all worth it.

Happy Holidays to All!

I SOOOO needed your Christmas Cheer, Dave! The holiday season started out with some unexpected challenges, and your burst of creativity put laughter and lightheartednes s center stage, where it belongs.

So proud of my "decorations!" Singing a "Ho! Ho! Ho!"

Thanks ya'll... good ol fashion shits and giggles around here.

Dana - I'm uber-thrilled that it has in any way brightened up anyone's day. Even at a conservative 1/2 hr each, this has taken up 8hrs of me week so far, it's great to hear it's helping folks get into the spirit.

Lyena - great to hear... spread the cheer GF! Oh and GREAT to see you've also changed yer Gravitar (I did my Disquis as well).
