That's right, it's that time of year again!

Stay tuned for more information!  And consider this your open thread for the week, so chat about anything you'd like in the comments while you wait for our opening!
This is so very exciting! :] I just remembered that I still have to create holiday cards. :D
How do you create your cards? I've been working on costumes for the holiday photo that'll be going in my cards. 2 (possibly 3) dogs and 2 cats to stwrangle.
I was just thinking about this the other day! Glad to see it's opening up again this year. :)
What's the best thing you ever got from Holiday Wishes?
What's the best thing you ever got from Holiday Wishes? I've been gifted some lovely things over the years, but the best thing I got was my wonderful friend Max. We swapped gifts the first year we took part, became friends the second year, met up in the third year and have been great buddies ever since.

For me, Holiday Wishes has become more than just a fun thing to do. It's become a real and proper part of Christmas, and has made me a kinder and more thoughtful person. So thank you creators, organisers, maintainers and mods. You make my life better and the world a nicer place.

Oh, I love this! I can't wait, I love tinkering around with Christmas gifts. :D

Until then! ♥
I will again be mostly sending out mix CDs, gotta get my playlist in order...what sounds better to you guys, "I Need a Vacation" (songs about vacation destinations), "So Very Tired" (lullabies and other quiet music for the end of the day), "Mighty Waters" (water-themed songs) or "A Year in the Life" (Songs about how the year has gone by)?
\o/ So looking forward to this. :D Haven't done it in a few years, but I'm definitely gonna try this year.
I'm happy to have it coming back. I'll probably be limited to cards this year but I really need the cheer and fun of the community. I've spent the past 6 months in crazy medical nightmare, first with discovering my uterus was full of tumors, then crazy treatments, worry over raising money for surgery, and last month, a hysterectomy. (From which I'm now recovering.)

So it's been a hard year and stressful and the bills are overwhelming which is why I greatly look forward to something fun and this community has always been such a great holiday tradition for me.

Anyway, looking forward to it! :)
WHEE!! :D:D:D I bought cards to send to lots of people again this year. Can't afford a lot, but do enjoy sending Christmas cheer!
Yay! I'm so excited. I bought a ton of cards, so it's time to start organizing them. I've been looking forward to this, as I do every year.
