bear_grin Well ladies and gents, its that time of year again:

Yes indeedido-  so We are getting the Holiday Cards list put together and wanted to give you all time, yeah, I know, we are late, so if you are interested, hurry and put your name on the list and/or email me at and we will hurry up and get it organized.

Same guidelines as always, we'll email you the 5 folks and you'll send cards, and 5 other folks will send you cards....that about sums it up, I think.

We will try to keep the long distance stamp charges down a bit....spread out so that not one Oz gal has 5 Canadians and the US gals are spread out, that sort of thing.

Remember, keep it simple, no big surprizes that other's can not reciprocate...etc.....I figure if you can put it in a standard envelope and get it buy the screeners its OK

And if you celebrate Hanukka or Kwanza, or Festivus or anything else, well that's fine too, we are open to new celebrations, its a great reason to party

Let us know-we really need to get a moooove on here.......

I was going to skip this thread cause I'm really not ready for Merry Christmas wishes! But while procrastinating on my website updates I decided I'd see why Diane was feeling so Merry already! Glad I did cause I love the Christmas Card thing!!!

Pssst..... Dilu.... perhaps you should put something about this being for the card exchange in your title? ..... or not! I'm just not always so quick to pick up on things! :redface:

Me, too, please.

I wasn't here last year at this time but it sounds fun...especially if there are only five cards to send. When I first read it I was thinking hundreds and hundreds. But I'm sure I can handle five.

What's the custom with these cards? Are they just regular Christmas Cards? Do you do something special with them. I ask because of Dilu's comment about "keep iut simple, no suprises." Makes me wonder what you all sent in the past.

( we don't need 10,000 of our favorite second cousins knowing where you live!)

If you participated last year I already have it...well I will have soon..... bear_grin

And I think we need a time frame so that these cards can get out on time:  How about a deadline of NOVEMBER 30th Friday night at 6 PM PST?

Well I haven't been much in the mood, but your enthusiasm is getting me going....Thanks guys!

Did i forget anything?  hmmmmm bear_wacko

Some people make cards, or enclose confetti or something like that, and thats great, just nothing that anyone would feel they should reciprocate, like, uh, chocolate.... :crackup:

Be sure to email me your addy...

Don't send a brand new car with the card!  :crackup: If you want to send a goodie with the card it has to fit in the envelope, not be suspicious to customs if you are sending it out of the country, etc. Like a book mark, ATC, etc. is OK. BUT.... don't feel you have to do anything.... a nice card from you is enough. This isn't supposed to be costly, just a kind and fun thing to do.

Dilu... I could tell you aren't in the mood! Feel better! :hug: (Sorry, I just posted when you were.........

NO CHOCOLATE?????  bear_cry

Dilu Posts: 8,574

Oh I was joking about the chocolate.....we can always share chocolate, can't we, can it fit in the envelope?  Hmmmmm.....
