AFTER CHRISTMAS PARTY

Ever wondered how raccoons celebrate Christmas?

Read this story and you will know!

The story behind the scenes: It took quite a while, lots of snacks and hundreds of Energy’s to organize this after Christmas event for the community but after traveling for almost 7 hours and arriving at the meeting point, all the stress was gone and a heartwarming weekend started. I was blown away by the love I was surrounded once everybody had arrived. 11 people in total were sharing a AirBnB we had booked, some of them did not even know them in RL but NONE of them had this feeling for once, because we all felt like, we knew each other since years. THIS is how this community is holding together and always will.

Friday, the day of arrival: Gosh, a few stressful hours before we could actually start relaxing but after we were shopping, getting all the drinks and snacks we needed, we had enough time to start cooking Chili Con Carne, with some fresh Baguette and for our special ones even Nachos. While others were preparing dinner, a few of our raccoons experiences fire and alcohol, started to prepare our secret santa event and others were just relaxing as they should. Later that day, we started our secret santa event and surprised each other with little gifts. We even had some delicious self made unicorn cupcakes, made by @rccns_cupcake. We played Light-stick Beer-pong in the dark, @rccns_Sunnieh was beating everyone in Super Mario Kart and everyone had lots of fun.

    

Saturday morning and it’s specialties: Some early birds were effected by @rccns_Blondie and while they cleaned up, others were still sort of napping, but overall everyone was preparing themselves for being the best at bowling. Yes that’s right, we went bowling and it was HELLA fun! But not for long, because as always, we got hungry and we already had plans to NOT miss the Happy Hours at Enchiladas! And there we had 4 hours of pure fun. Getting to know each other even more, spending lots of money and we all took quite a few pictures. After we decided to go, we spent the rest of the evening playing “The werewolves of Miller’s Hollow” and by the rest of the evening, I mean nearly 6 hours straight. We’re not addicted yet, although we discussed possibilities to play it online right before going to bed the same night.

     

 

 

 

 

 

The sad good-bye: A few hours of sleep but a nice breakfast to get strength, but we all knew one thing. The weekend will soon be over, everyone will go home to their realities and it will feel like forever before we can see each other again. But this weekend was what most of us needed since a while now and we all can’t wait for the next event which is already in planning by our lovely event management team.

We thank each and everyone who was there: @rccns_Blondie @rccns_dnL @rccns_Suchti @rccns_CupCake @rccns_Doomsday @rccns_anch0r @rccns_Whoop1 @rccns_Nayail @rccns_sunnieh @rccns_Headmonsta @rccns_clu7ch and we would like to say, that a lot of people were missed at the event. We hope our next events will become bigger and even better as this one. More pictures as the ones shown here, can be found by looking through our gallery.

And here’s one of the heartwarming thing, why I love this community: (attention next rows will be in german)

“Ich möchte euch da etwas erzählen, auch auf die Gefahr einiges schon mal ausgesprochen zu haben. Ich war dabei!” schrieb @rccns_Sunnieh heute früh noch in die dazu gehörende WhatsApp Gruppe, da wurde mir schon warm ums Herz. “Es passiert für mich etwas sehr sehr schönes mein eigentlich persönliches emotionales Highlight. Ich war nicht ganz durch die Türe da blickten mich schon durch einen Spalt Gesicht an die ich nie gesehen hatte, mir dennoch nicht fremd waren. Die Leute sind angestürmt gekommen um mich zu begrüßen. Sie standen in einer Reihe brav abwartend bis ich mich ihnen zuwende. Ich konnte die Tränen gerade zu zurrück halten! Aber wieso? Ich war noch nie in Kassel und wie gesagt manche waren mir sehr fremd doch ich bekam durch das betreten der Tür das Gefühl zuhause zu sein, bzw angekommen zu sein.” ging es weiter. Aber zusätzlich schrieb er noch “Viele sind auch nur Freunde die mit zu den Raccoons kommen einige bringen Familie mit auch wenn diese sich nicht als Raccoons sehen haben sie ihren Platz! Ich finde es schön das solche Wochenenden Gelegenheit bieten Leute kennen zu lernen die man nur vom Namen her und würde daher es immer wieder unterstützen so etwas zu machen.” und genau das ist es was uns ausmacht, bei uns ist jeder willkommen! Wir sind die INSANE RACCOONS und wir sind mehr als nur eine Community!
