Santafied - Hacktoberfest 2019


Welcome to this year's HTML challenge for Hacktoberfest (What is Hacktoberfest?). A project with beginners and aspiring developers in mind, utilizing HTML, CSS & maybe a dash of JavaScript to achieve a simplistic yet elegant Christmas themed website.

Everyone is encouraged to participate, regardless of your skill level. This is a practice project and should be considered a playground. This project has plenty of options for collaboration, here are just a few of the many that we welcome pull requests:

  • HTML elements
  • CSS styling
  • Images
  • Text/Copy
  • Documentation
  • Fix Typos, Code Bugs or Accessibility oversights

Project Brief

Over the years Santa Claus has noticed a decline in the Christmas spirit and is in desperate need of our help! Santa and his elves have put together a basic design concept for a brand new website they want to be able to launch in November.

The website should provide visitors with the following:

  • A page for Christmas information and facts.
  • Recipes page for traditional food and drinks of Christmas
  • Gift suggestions for secret santas
  • Lyrics for Christmas songs 🎵
  • Christmas games 🎮
  • Christmas Films 🎥
  • Christmas Books 📚
  • Christmas Activities 🤪
  • Christmas themed party costumes 👻
  • Christmas themed backgrounds 🗻
  • Christmas themed name generator webapp 📱

Suggestions & Ideas

Santa and his elves are very much open to ideas and suggestions for new content. Please create a new issue here, ensuring that you indicate if the task is "up for grabs" or you wish to take up the task yourself.

To ensure everyone has the best chance at participating in this project. Please follow these simple guidelines where possible:

  • Simplicity is key: There is not much need for React, Sass etc here. Lets stick with vanilla HTML, CSS & JavaScript.
  • Commenting: Try to comment your code, so everyone can understand whats going on and could learn a thing or two.
  • Respect Content: Only use images/content that we are licensed to use.
  • Issues: Use Github issues, to create/find/solve ideas and bugs.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
