Happy Holidays!

This is a fun thread to post about what you did or are going to do over the holidays! Maybe you got something cool from some Santa Crates and want to share? Maybe you smashed a ship in your Winter Themed Duke of York? Perhaps you are loving the detail of the new Hamburg port? Let's hear about it!

Thank you guys for the 4 ships. And I used dubs to buy 3 more. I'll be ranking stuff ASAP.

 I got 5 $2.99 boxes for 13.29 A Gremy A Nik 4 x 1000 gold and 10,000 FXP then bought some crates for friends.

Hope you don't mind if I post my Night before Shipmas here even though I posted it in off topic thanks @Pigeon_of_War it will get more looks here I think.

‘Twas the night before Shipmas, when all thru’ the Sea,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a Sea Bee;
The Sea-Bags were hung by the Smoke Stack with care,
In hopes that Admiral St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The Seamen were nestled all snug in their Racks,
With visions of Crackers and Cheese Whiz and various snacks,
And Cappy in his state room, and I in watch-cap,
Had just settled our brains, for a long Shipboard nap-
When out by the anchor, there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my rack, to see what was the matter.
Away to the Forecastle, I flew like a flash,
Tore open the dogs, and I opened the hatch.
The moon on the breast of the ship with fresh snow,
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below;
When, what to my wondering eyes should I hale,
But a miniature sub, and some porpoises and whales,
With a little old Captain, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment, it must be Admiral St. Nick.
More rapid than Seagulls his these sea creatures came,
And he whistled, and echoed, and call’d them by name:
“Now! Narwhal, now! Moby, now! Willy, and Skipper,
“On! Spinner, on! Orca, on! Humpback and Flipper;
“To the top of the Bridge! to the top of the Mast!
“Now dash away! dash away! dash away Fast!”
As salt spray before the wild typhoon fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;
So up to the Smoke_stack the Dolpinidae they flew,
With the Sub full of Crates - and Admiral St. Nicholas too:
And then in a twinkling, I heard on the Deck
The scraping of Sub parts, it was kind of a wreck.
As looked toward the Mess hall, and was turning around,
Down the smoke stack Admiral St. Nicholas came with a bound:
He was in his dress uniform, from his hat to his shoes,
And his uniform was disheveled, and smelled a little of booze;
A bundle of Shipmas Crates, he dragged cross the deck,
He looked a lot like the Chief, but I thought, what the heck:
His eyes - They were bloodshot! his arms were all hairy,
His cheeks were all sunken, his nose it was scary;
His droll little mouth was as per usual, a frown,
And the beard of his chin was a mixed grey and brown;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And whatever smoke he had in it, circled his head like a wreath.
He had a huge face, and a little round body.
He kind of looked like a bobble-head, but they aren't quite so gaudy:
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old Sailor,
And I laughed when I saw him and thought he had a bad tailor;
With a wink of his eye and a twist of his head
He soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the sea-bags; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger inside of his nose
And giving a nod, up the smokestack he rose.
He sprung to his Sub, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew, leaving a con-trail like a missile:
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight-
Happy Shipmas to all, and to all a good Fight.

IMHO - I did better with the "Legion" free crates, receiving 300 doubloons and 10,000 free xp, as opposed to the camos and flags I got for $20. I encourage EVERYONE of you to signup for the Legion.

I got 2 DDs out of crates, a Leningrad and a Blyskawica, and the I bought an Alabama with dubloons.

First game out, I sunk a Yamato. Second game, I did over 100k damage and got a Dreadnought award. Won both times. I think I am in love.

And a Merry Christmas to all here in the forum and to Pigeon thanks for everything you do for us. The wife and are hosting 5 US Army families this year at our home during Christmas day, they are members of our daughters Bradley Recon unit home on leave for the holidays, won't be on Christmas day playing ships, more of a giving thing the wife and I do for the Vets and families.

To all of my friends here and to Pigeon,

Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year

Thank you once again for the Santa crates.

My wallet cannot resist.

I received 79 winter cammos,  1900 dubloons, a ton of flags and 2 premium ships: Okhotnik & Lenbingrad.

 

The port is awesome.

 

Can we get advent calendar as a wallpaper?

And I rather like the holiday event. Nothing too over the top, not understated... feels just right
I hope we get to keep the horns, sans the Ho Ho Ho. They're a nice lil touch that I'd been hoping for since Beta

I didn't buy Okhotnik because I just didn't think I would play it enough since t5 MM got ruined, but it did look like a fun boat, and certainly a troll boat, so I'll happily accept it for less than $2.99

I bought Sims back in the CBT buy in days (I bought the Whale package with all 3 in it - I used to have an awesome playing job). I LOVED Sims in CBT, but when the game released the magic was gone and the ship filled me with hatred and dispair. I've never liked it since, and I even sold it. Sims was one of about 5 USN ships in the game that I don't have in my port (except CVs, where I only have 3) and there was a reason why I didn't have her anymore. Well, I guess it's fate so I'll keep her this time.

Got me a Kamikaze R during Project R event (great even btw - kept me in the game for sure). I guess now I have a Kamikaze -R. It's not something I really wanted, but I can't complain.

This is literally the only way Huang He was going to end up in my port.

 

So my total from 27 boxes is 

6300 dubloons

4 premium ships

105 Frosty Fir Tree Camo

75 Red Dragon Signals

50 Zulu Signals

30 Wyvern Signals

15 Dragon Signals

15 Ouroboros Singals

15 Type 59 Camos

 

I'll rate that as a good haul. Merry Christmas everybody.

Really like the new Hamburg port... I vaguely recognize the music motif; sounds Christmas-sy, but it's classical. Anyone else recognize it and/or the composer? I thought it was Schubert at first but was striking out on finding the original composition on youtube...

Merry Christmas 2017 Pigeon.
This season's Christmas forum banner displayed a group of beards with stressed out, serious expressions.
Why do they look unhappy?  Those guys aren't smiling.

2. HMS Hood

Although I will admit that HMS Hood was from a reroll still....quite lucky.

From what I heard of it, I’m fairly certain it’s the Deutschlandlied.
