    Just creating this as a few people have enquired if we're doing one. Especially as we seem to have a solid group of posters.

    I think the I believe in Christmas festival would make for a great location. Central Dublin and it has a market, 50ft tree and the I BELIEVE™ Market Lodge which offers craft beer and food.

    So if anyone is interested or has other ideas please register your thoughts/suggestions/opinions here :)

    I'm definitely up for it. I like the idea of meeting up at the festival for sure.

    And just to be annoying, maybe anyone who's coming could bring a little small pressie (if they want) and we do a really low-key secret santa? Like, if you come just bring a small thing (homemade, maybe up to a fiver) and then we just put them all on a tabe or in a bag and everyone who brought something gets to pick something out and bring a different thing home? I dunno. Just an idea. I think it'd be fun. :)

    I'm back on the 17th, but I'll have my new boyfriend in tow until the 21st - and he might be a bit alarmed if I say we're going to meet some people from the internet :D

    I love seeing the christmas stuff behind the Halloween stuff atm. I promised the kids we can change the front garden in to a very scary place tomorrow,do you reckon if I put up the christmas lights it will scare the neighbours enough?;)

    It all depends on what suits the majority. I'd be leaning for a late November/early December time as any closer to Christmas and you'd find everyone is very busy.

    I would be up for this.

    Just one question - do you have to be a Boardsie to go?

    A friend of mine is from Dublin and would be up for going but she isn't a member of boards, and I can't persuade her to join :(

    Of course she doesn't. The more the merrier :)

    But the more boardies that can make it the better. :)
