Prepare your lists for this holiday season!

Hooray, Christmas is on the way! Once December rolls around, you can practically feel the excitement in the air as the world prepares for one of the most beloved holidays. Christmas trees are put up, decorations are brought down from the attic, and presents are being bought.

The Everygame poker community is joining the festivities by celebrating Santa's List Day, taking place on December 4. What is this day all about? And how can you make your holiday more enjoyable as you play poker? We are here to help you answer these questions!

Santa's List Day: A Bit of Background

As kids, we've all waited for Santa to come down the chimney on Christmas Eve and leave a pile of presents under the tree. But how does Santa know which houses to visit on that magical night? Legends have it that Santa puts together his lists of naughty and nice children on December 4, so that is when kids – and grownups – start working on their holiday wish lists.

The purpose of this day (in addition to ensuring children behave better to get on the nice list) is to get people into the holiday spirit. As adults, we might not believe in Santa anymore, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun and enjoy the excitement in the air.

How to Make the Most of Santa's List Day: Poker Edition

Getting on Santa's nice list might not be your top priority, but this day is the perfect opportunity for you to conduct a few lists of your own: a list of poker-related gifts and an achievement wish list for the upcoming year.

Poker Gifts for the Holidays

Are you surrounded by poker lovers just like yourself? Or do you simply want to pamper yourself during these merry times? Before you hit the stores in search of poker-related poker discounts, make a list of things you might like to get this holiday season. Here is a list of poker gifts for you to consider:

  • Poker guidebooks – to learn new poker tactics as you enjoy some quiet time during your winter vacation.
  • Online lessons – there is nothing like learning the ins and outs of the game from the best players out there. Gifting your loved ones with an online session with experienced poker pros can be just the thing to make their holiday as special as possible!
  • Gizmos and gadgets – making online gambling as comfortable as possible is important when you plan on playing poker for a few hours at a time. An ergonomic chair or mouse, a new set of headphones, or a cool keyboard can be the perfect gift this Christmas.
  • Poker decorations – personalized poker chips, a fancy deck of cards, or even a miniature poker table can be the perfect items to decorate your home if poker is a major part of your life.

If any of those things are going to wind up on your Christmas shopping list, you will not be sorry!

Poker Achievements Wish List

Since Christmas comes just in time to say goodbye to the past twelve months, it is also the perfect opportunity for you to come up with a wish list for the upcoming year. During this magical season, it feels as if everything is possible, which is the best time to concoct dreams for the future.

Here are a few things you might put on your poker wish list:

  • Play against a pro you know and respect.
  • Participate in at least one cash game per week.
  • Take a few poker lessons to get better.
  • Participate in a few poker charity events.
  • Join an online WSOP event and play in as many tournaments as possible.

Creating a list of things you want to achieve after Christmas is over can help you keep track of your poker goals. And if you play your cards right, you might even knock some of these items off your list during the upcoming holiday season!

We Wish You a Merry Holiday Season!

Santa's List Day is here to kickstart the holiday season, and we can't pass it up! After completing your lists, make sure to enjoy a hearty poker session with the best bonuses available before Christmas.
