Wow! That is great, but hopefully they will have a very efficient giveaway plan in force. I have seen quite a few uncontrolable and dangerous riots among villagers, when any type of item was given away!

You're right - and sometimes people get injured in stampedes Hope they are more careful this year - but . . . somehow I don't think it will be any different!
