Introducing Critmas Lite

Hello wonderful Critters!

This year we have a whole new layer to our Critmas experience. Every year we have run Critmas, there have been many people who could not participate because the $25 minimum was more than they could spare over the holidays. This year we are offering an alternative: Critmas Lite!

How does it work?

It works exactly the same as Critmas, except that the goal is to send just a small thing – a little, thoughtful gift worth between US$5-$10 (excl. shipping) to someone somewhere in the world. The idea is to spend more time and thought than money – to carefully read your person’s answers an pick something little and frivolous and thoughful that will make your recipient smile and squee. We are hoping that by doing this, we will be able to open this wonderful experience up to more Critters.

Can I do both?

No! You must choose between Critmas and Critmas Lite – the idea is to create more opportunities for people to participate who otherwise would not be able to, but we simply don’t have the manpower for all our Critters to do both versions.

Is it still regional?

Yes. In every way other than the dollar amount, this will be run identically to Critmas. We will still give you options to pick a region, you will still have an elf taking care of you, and you will still be subject to the same level of accountability from our Cheese of Unusual Size.

I have questions!
