2009 Christmas Card Exchange

Hi all,

Sign-ups for the 2009 Christmas Card Exchange are now closed. Thanks to all who signed up. The final list has been published and all participants have been notified by email. I will keep this thread open for a few more days then will lock it down.

For those who may be new to this, let me briefly explain what the Christmas Card Exchange has meant for me. Below are a couple of pictures taken in my home on Christmas Eve:





What I want you to notice is the wall in the background on these images -- see all those Christmas cards? The vast majority of those came from our Christmas Card Exchange right here on MMC. I had FIVE walls like this with cards in my home and it made every day Christmas between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve to run to the mailbox. My kids loved it and it was FABULOUS to see cards come from all over the world.

Please read the FAQ on the signup page for more information or ask your questions here in this thread.

I will periodically list names of individuals who sign up for this year's exchange, so visit this post frequently for updates.

Thanks,
Jeff
