Christmas / New Year card exchange?

Postby AuntyVague » Sat Nov 24, 2012 11:01 am

I've possibly left this a little a late, but would anyone like to join in with exchanging Christmas or New Year cards?

Exchanging cards really brightens up the festive season for me and Jeannie's post just reminded me about the tradition we had on the old HC board. I still exchange Christmas and postcards (well, ok, I've personally been a bit slack on the postcard front lately :roll: ) with friends I made there.

It's simply a matter of exchanging a PM with your contact details with those who wish to exchange cards. Of course, it's fair enough to be cautious with sharing your address...so 'No worries' if you don't fancy joining in.

I guess I could have a go at keeping a list of those who want to join in :think: But if you'd like a card from Fourecks you will need to let me know soon or you might get it in time for next Christmas!

Can I suggest that anyone who wants to take part posts their name here? Anyone who wants to take part then just needs to Personal Message anyone else up for it and exchange addresses. :)

Great idea Tony! But I suspect I've left it a bit too late and everyone has been having too much fun with their Hosgwatch exchanges (I can't believe this is the second year I've managed not to be organised enough to participate in that :roll: )

I will definitely jump in on this next year when I have more time. Be a bit quicker next time AV and I will gladly share the cardboard thingies. :lol:

Wrote it on an envelope yesterday. Now I only have to go down to the post office and post my cards.

I received my first card today! Yay!

I've posted most of mine now...thought I was being clever by posting them in batches, but the net result is that some people might get two cards and some none because I forgot to note which I'd already sent. Some things never chance :roll:
