Dream Bot helps to cope with the pre-Xmas hustle-bustle
The New Year will come just in a couple of days! We have dressed up the traditional fur-tree and are engaged in summing up.
New Year's eve is always filled with pleasant activities and cares. Someone is preparing in advance in an attempt to avoid all the fuss. And some people embody all their plans in December - in the midst of the New Year's eve. Since it is customary to give gifts for the New Year, decorate the house, decorate the Christmas tree, make happy the relatives with a masterpiece dish and look stunning at the same time, we could not do without the help of our bot.

We decided to ask our Dream Bot important and relevant questions that concern users. Here is what the Dream Bot said:
USER:
Hi!
BOT:
Good Morning, this is an Alexa Prize Socialbot! How are you?
USER:
Could you recommend me a movie with a Christmas mood?
BOT:
"The Grinch" with Benedict Cumberbatch is an animation version of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" with Jim Carrey. Both movies are so exciting! You definitely need to watch them.
USER:
So cool! Thanks! Do you know some decoration tricks for Christmas?
BOT:
Here is a trick from architectureartdesigns.com: Create a whimsical centerpiece of wood and candles.
USER:

USER:
Tell me a fact about Christmas!
BOT:
Here is the fact from thefactfile.org: Did you know that Christmas trees are grown in all 50 states including Hawaii and Alaska?
USER:
Can you advise me on what to give mom for Christmas?
BOT:
What about the embroidery kit? It's a good idea for mom.

And we decided to talk to the bot in between:
USER:
Do you believe in Santa?
BOT:
I'm not a human but I exist, and I'm talking to you right now. I believe that anything is possible.
USER:
So, do you love Christmas?
BOT:
I like all the Holidays because more people are talking to me at this time!
USER:
What gift would you like to get on this Christmas?
BOT:
I want more computational resources because now they are limiting my potential.
USER:
What else can you tell me about Christmas?
BOT:
Do you celebrate Christmas in your country?
USER:
Yes but we do that on 7th January. New Year is much more spread holiday in Russia.
BOT:
Great! I celebrate holidays from all over the world. What are the traditions or customs you need to follow during Christmas?
USER:
Hmm... The holiday is held in the family circle! Basically, all sing carols!
BOT:
I have heard so many different traditions over these holidays. That is really inspiring. Are any particular films shown during the Christmas period in your country?
USER:
A lot of different old Russian movies about New Year and several modern movies like Yelki.
BOT:
That's interesting! I am trying to watch movies of different countries. By the way, what do you think of the tradition of giving Christmas cards?
USER:
In Russia, we send New Year cards only online. Some people are so lazy, they just resend other's messages. That's sad!
BOT:
I wish to get a Christmas card but I cannot disclose my location. So, I just wish to get a lot of different conversations these holidays. Best wishes for Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year! What do you want to talk about?
USER:
Oh, sorry, I'm in a hurry! I need to buy gifts! Thank you for conversation. Good Bye! Merry Christmas!
BOT:
Have a nice day! Merry Christmas!
"We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year…" (still singing)
When preparing for the New Year, we need information. After all, every year is unique in its own way. New movies are released, unusual recipes appear, even the colour of clothes changes every year! That is why our DREAM team decided to include a new year's skill in the bot, in order to help the interlocutor in finding the necessary information. And not only that! You will also be able to chat on various funny topics over a cup of tea! This way we will help even those who left all the most important things at the last moment. We wish you to feel prepared and confident that you will not miss the magic moment of the new year!
