The bucket is waiting for you in the elephant, on the dresser. Touch the empty owl bucket to get your own! Then touch your bucket for sweets and silly toys!
This year, there are some sneaky extra buckets as well- a few VIP groups have special versions. My group, of course, gets a bucket. But there is also a bucket for hyasynth's ~silentsparrow~ twittery birds, and the *katat0nik* group has a special bucket for you too.
