Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

    Hello and welcome to The Mix forums!

    This thread is a quick introduction to who we are, what this place is for and how to get started.

    Who are we?

    We are The Mix community - a pretty mixed bunch of people who are interested in or affected by the issues covered by The Mix. We're from all over and all walks of life.

    Most of us are from the UK and between 13 and 25, but some are older or younger. We talk about things happening in our lives and provide each other with information, advice or just a friendly ear. Though, being an internet forum, we do have a whole section for general banter

    What is this place for?

    These forums are a moderated, judgment-free place to ask for advice or talk about anything that's affecting you or playing on your mind.

    We have forums for: We also have a Chat & Debate forum for more general topics.

    As well as discussion boards, we also run live chats most days, and of course, there's loads of information on all the areas above on the 'Get Info' part of The Mix.

    Getting started

    If you haven't already, you can register here.

    Make sure you've read our Registration Rules and Good Manners Guide as they'll give you a good idea of how things work around here.

    It might also be worth taking a look at our Mods and Moderating Policy.

    Why not fill out your profile a bit too? You can add some info about your interests, add a profile picture, an avatar and even a signature.

    Once you've done all that, feel free to get posting!

    Why not start by saying 'hi' and introducing yourself in our Introductions Section?

    If it's all a bit confusing, post in our Help Desk and someone will get back to you.

    Happy posting
    We're Aife, Mike and Emma: the staff team here at The Mix.
