Step One
- Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Harry/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
- If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Step Two
- Surf around your friends list (or friend’s friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
- You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not - it's your call.
- There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My Christmas Wishes )

Just stopping by to say Happy Christmas (or Whatever!) to all my f-listers and any lurkers who haven't said "hi" yet!

We're getting some sleet and ice, but hopefully it'll clear up a bit before we head down to family Christmas at my grandparents' place.

Best to everyone, especially those who don't particularly enjoy the holiday. *hugs* Take care, guys!

All my love,

Everyone on my flist, you guys can ignore this post if you're not involved. ;)

Secret Santa Information!!
Please read ALL of this. It may seem tedious, but it's important if we want this to go smoothly!

Here's how this is going to work:

The list below is the participants in the Secret Santa. Each participant has been given a number. To determine who you will be preparing a gift for, use this Random Number Generator. Input (1) as your lowest number and (8) as the highest, which will give you an output of something on the list.


You CANNOT select yourself for this, so if you roll your own number, try again!!

I will "cross off" people from the list as they're "taken". If the first number you roll is already "taken", just roll again until you get one that's still available. And make sure you post your anonymous comment, or you'll have to do it all over again!! (or, worse, someone will get two presents and someone else will get none at all - and we don't want that!)

I filled in the doll information to the best of my knowledge, if you didn't PM me the types you own. If you'd like me to make corrections to your list, post a comment and let me know. (And hey, don't post that as part of your anonymous comment, mmkay? Cuz that would sorta let the cat out of the bag.)

Listed in No Particular Order
(I'm using DoA usernames for these, because some people don't have LJs or may not want them listed. Also, it's easier to remember who everyone is on the thread this way!)

1. Percy (SD boys)

2. Arashiko (SD boys)

3. Bad8luck8cat (SD girl)

4. ChriseeV (SD boys, MSD boys, YoSD girl)

5. SolarCat (SD boys, MSD boys, YoSD boy)

6. Maewyn (SD boy & girl, MSD boy & girl, YoSD boy)

7. Amet & sephyelysian (SD boys, MSD boys)

8. alexiell (SD boys, MNF girl, others???)

Secret Santa gifts will be exchanged at the Holiday Party on December 8th! Please remember, $10 is the price limit on this!! Just because you ended up with your best friend for Secret Santa doesn't mean you should be splurging on them. If you'd like to exchange gifts independently, that's fine, but let's keep everyone's feelings in mind when it comes to the Secret Santa. =)

Have fun, everybody! =D
