18th of December, 2018,
Even if it seems that pure joy is unquely behind the event of Secret SANTA, there is much more to it than that! While shrouded in the Christmas magic, Ro2D2 team discovered that this apparently common event is not only a simple "wait and see", but also a challenge for both the giver and the grantee! Hereby, Ro2D2 has got as far as rather loving the ones offering them gifts themselves! And this is what a rightful team should be based on!
18th of December, 2018,
Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas. This celebration is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of friends, therefore, amazingly perfect to spend amoung the Ro2D2 members!
The TIME Capsule
1st of December, 20.00-21.00
"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long forthose who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. " (Henry Van Dyke)
After having assessed their robot for already plenty of times, Ro2D2 gave a tryout to time itself. They brought all their ponderous objects together, of course, after choosing them from the endless boatload of both real things and true feelings! After putting them together in a chest, they buried it and left it within the discretion of time...how long?...100 years! The team strongly wishes that their loved objects will provide a glance to their present time and activity, arising emotions such as amazement, curiosity, happiness... Our sovereign, the TIME, will tell!
100 years...later! (Debate)

All in one voice, we weighed the gravity of the issues future might lay ahead; the future as some daring teenagers may portray...In brief, Ro2D2 discussed about the unrest of next generations, who, we hope, will be more focused on BEING, rather than on HAVING!
