Whodunnit?: Holiday Edition

The hit game from Octerror Fest 2017 returned again, this time with a holiday theme. The goal this time was to figure out figure out who spiked the egg nog and posted the embarrassing snapshot of SpongeBob at the Christmas party. The following characters were suspects: SpongeBob, Old Man Jenkins, Squilliam, Squidward, Mermaid Man, Barnacle Boy, Perch Perkins, and Mr. Krabs. On select days during the event, the characters will come on and release their anecdote on what happened. The characters would also come on to answer user's questions as well in their topics. Users had to PM hilaryfan80 who they think the culprit is. On December 29th, the culprit was revealed to be Old Man Jenkins. The winners who correctly guessed (Homie, Hayden, SpongeOddFan, Ol Bold and Brash, TheOpenWindowManiac, Trophy, Fred Rechid and NegiSpongie) received 5,000 doubloons each and a point for their teams on the scoreboard. However, one new feature in this Whodunnit is that the characters will mention where to find their presents that they hid, and whoever finds it first gets a team point. The anecdotes are listed below due to the fact finding a character's present gives a team point.
