Yes, there is a telegram infochannel

There are two moderated chats, an international one in english and a germanone.

We still believe that an international chat comes closest to the idea of this calendar. Since we had many requests from german participants with little knowledge of english last year, and the calendar team lives there, we are offering an additional german chat this time. However, we kindly ask everyone to preferably use the international chat - to defeat anti-claus, global cooperation is needed!

We're just looking to see if they've been done or not. For example, if you have to take a picture of a Christmas tree, the task is not fulfilled if you send us a picture of your feet. Otherwise we like to see creative solutions.

Just keep going, there's the latecomer raffle and the team category, where you can still win. And from day 15 on, doing a task C will also give you one point for A/B so you can catch up.
