| To remember |
I remember color like glittering sun on stone
You cracked an egg of yellow and gold
I remember running free and wild
Gathering the eggs I eventually piled
I remember grandma’s house and creaking floorboard sound
Neighbors come to participate in adventures; gather round
I remember chasing ducks near the lake
While mother stood near the stove with things to bake
I remember bunnies, sweet and cradled kindly
To remind us that we grope for petty things blindly
I remember winning prizes and water balloon fights
Soaking through and laughing till’ we accrued too many mosquito bites
I remember fun and family, food and friends
Twilight snuffed the dawn and eventually ends
I remember, maybe, the things I loved to do
I remember all those Easters, young and old, I got to spend with you.

2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: And there should be a description contest :D
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Oof, forgot about that!
2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: Should we maybe add the year number? That way we can save the entries..?
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Hmmm.. Easter Festival 2008?
We can just clean the entry pages and put the entries on a seperate wiki maybe. *nod nod*
2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: I meant to add the year number to the entry-pages :P
That's also possible, what kind of separate wiki?
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Oooh! You mean something like 'Easter Art Entries 08, Page 1' ? :P
Hmmm.. a secret one which only the judges have access to?
2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: Yes I was initially thinking that, but your way might be better!
You can just move all the entries to one wiki and collect them there. I don't expect there will be hundreds right away anyway.
Well, the point is to collect them where others can also enjoy it, as if it's an art gallery :)
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Hehe okay. :P
Ah, that's fine, yeah. We'll see how it goes!
By the way, I'm not too sure about which rules to add on each page? :S *copying and pasting the wrong thing over and over* XD
2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: Some rules apply to all 4 pages.. :P
Maybe it's better to just link to them?
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Hmmm.. it would be a lot tidier wouldn't it? I'll have a mess around now. :)
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Okie doke, how's it coming along? Anything I need to add/change? :P
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Hmm okay. I won't be able to make any badges or anything just yet by the way, or dividers for tha matter because I don't have Photoshop on my laptop. :/
2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: Well, try to find someone who can help you ^^
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: Hmm.. Zaaaaaab.. *toddles off* xD
2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: Hehehe :P
2008-01-01 [Atayemi]: ._.
2008-02-02 [nehirwen]: ?
2008-02-02 [Lin-tastic]: -blinks then slaps forehead-...ap
2008-02-02 [nehirwen]: :p
2008-02-04 [Lin-tastic]: -ish still embarrased-...
2008-02-05 [nehirwen]: Just the deadline and the proof photo thing are needed, and this contest is ready to be opened. :)
2008-02-05 [Atayemi]: Great graphics! <3 The deadline is set and I'll add the proof photo once I think of a sensible and fair object. :)
2008-02-05 [nehirwen]: Thanks ^^
What is the deadline? (I personally recommend something like 10 days before Easter)
2008-02-05 [Atayemi]: I already put the deadline.. now it's gone. >.>
2008-02-05 [nehirwen]: Was that deadline somewhere in May?
I might have deleted that one O.o
We want winners to show on Easter itself...
Not later on in May...
2008-02-05 [Atayemi]: Oh, alright.
2008-02-05 [nehirwen]: Sorry, I should have been more clear on that. :)
Shall I put the deadline on March 13 for the art, poetry and description contest, and March 30 for photography?
2008-02-05 [Atayemi]: Eh, change it to whatever you want if you like.. I'm not too good with thinking up deadlines, really.
2008-02-05 [nehirwen]: With these dates you've got 10 days to make a poll, let people vote on the poll, and prepare this page for easter festival..
And photographers have 1 week to enter their photo's..
If that sounds alright with you, you can add it to the pages. :)
2008-02-05 [Atayemi]: I feel as if you are doing all the work here.. and it makes me feel like I'm taking this place for granted. *sighs* Sorry, I'm not normally this picky or quiet. I'll add your suggested deadlines and just go from there. Like I said last time, I have a lot of college work to hand in and such, so. ><' But I really do appreciate your help.
2008-02-05 [nehirwen]: Don't worry, I love to work on this, and since other people are busy with more important -rl- stuff (like you), I like to finish what they started. :)
You can take it from here. ;)
I also appreciate what YOU've done so far!
All the intro's of the festivals is based on your intro, after all. ^__^
And you've put effort into this festival too. :)
2008-02-05 [Atayemi]: Hehe, thanks. :)
2008-02-05 [nehirwen]: *throws colored egg* :p
Thanks to your latest edit of this wiki, we can open this contest ^_^ jeeej
2008-02-05 [Atayemi]: x)
Yay! Now it's time for the public to finish off the work for us, now. :)
2008-02-06 [Triola]: real egg(not chocolate) or something oval shaped.
Why specify that you need a real egg, when you proceed to allowing anything oval shaped? :P
2008-02-06 [Atayemi]: I don't know.. ._.
2008-02-09 [nehirwen]: Perhaps it's better to remove the 'or something oval shaped' part, and stay specific eggie. :)
2008-02-19 [Mom]: I don't know if I can enter this one...the deadline is one week after the StPatty's Day Contest and that's pushing it. It does take some of us more than a day or two to work on a piece. =\
2008-02-19 [nehirwen]: All these festival contests will be open all year, and will announce winners once a year. (on the festival date itself)
You can take all the time you want. :)
2008-02-21 [Mom]: Kinda takes the festivity out of the holiday.
2008-02-21 [nehirwen]: Whenever you're in a festival mood you can make an entry and submit it. :)
This way we hope to get more people to enter.
And on the festival date itself this page will be all decorated for the holiday, with winning entries etc. :)
I hope that last part will be enough 'festivity' for you. ;)
2008-02-22 [Lady Ice]: i know that it says you can enter twice... is that twice total or like twice in photography, twice in artwork, twice in poetry....?
2008-02-22 [Atayemi]: It means that you may submit two entries for each category. :)
2008-03-27 [Lady Ice]: well... I didn't realize we were voting until its already over.... congrats to the winners
2008-09-14 [FamousPanda]: is there gonna be an easter comp this year
2008-09-14 [Atayemi]: Easter has been and gone. XD Next year probably.
2008-09-14 [nehirwen]: *pokes*
2008-09-14 [Atayemi]: Oooh, trust me I would in a heartbeat, but I'm having serious problems with a nasty virus on my laptop. :o
2008-09-14 [nehirwen]: You don't need to do it instantly, just.. soonish. ;)
*shakes fist to your nasty virus* <.< that must suck..
2008-09-14 [Atayemi]: *nods* Yup yup!
Aye it does.. my laptop has been so good and I've had no problems with it since Christmas. :/
2008-09-14 [FamousPanda]: i knew easter has passed lol i meant for next year i just want to get started lol
2008-09-14 [nehirwen]: Great. :)
Bleh :( I hope your laptop will be virus free soon, and keeps that way for a long time as well.
2008-09-14 [nehirwen]: We might think of a theme this year, not sure yet.
You must wait a bit I'm afraid..
It's good you've poked us though. :)
You've made something for thanksgiving festival yet? ;) :p
2008-09-14 [FamousPanda]: no i cant figure out what to draw =[
2008-09-14 [nehirwen]: Well.. the deadline is nowhere near, you can take your time. :)
2008-09-14 [FamousPanda]: any ideas?
2008-09-14 [nehirwen]: I don't feel inspired myself with the whole thanksgiving celebration, since I'm not an American, so.. no. x)
(all I can think of is turkey and pilgrimhats. O.o )
Good luck with your hunt on inspiration and ideas..
2008-09-14 [FamousPanda]: kk lol thanks
2008-11-17 [FamousPanda]: Why isn't there an Easter Photography Comp.?
2008-11-17 [nehirwen]: Photography doesn't seem to run well, so I didn't bother to make a 2009 page for that section.
(in all festivals there is a total of 0 submissions..)
2008-11-17 [FamousPanda]: i would have done it
2008-11-17 [Atayemi]: Hmm, I'm not too sure. If there wasn't much interest in it last year, then.. :/
2008-11-17 [FamousPanda]: i could be the only one to enter.. therefor the winner =D lol
2009-05-21 [nehirwen]: Congratulation
2009-09-18 [Keitaro]: lol interesting :P
