MeFi Holiday Card Exchange November 7, 2019 6:34 PM   Subscribe

Who is up for sending more cards for the holidays? The link for the 2019 MeFi Holiday Card Exchange is within!

MeFites send the best cards - I had so much fun last year.

You can sign up here.

The Google form will be open through end of day Thursday November 21st. My goal is to compile responses and send out addresses by end of day Sunday November 24th.

Any type of cards are fine - handmade, storebought, postcards, etc!

You have the option to choose US-only or International, and you can also choose the number of cards you'd like to send - 10, up to 20 or up to 30.

As a reminder, if you don't have the energy for this, but would like a card anyway, please send me a message. I am happy to send cards to people who want them!

I can do it this year! Thanks to all the people who sent me a card when I didn't have the spoons to participate, I will pay it forward and say message me if you're in the same boat (I don't live in the US however!).

This looks fun! I'd love to take part. But I'd only want to send to people within Europe, because getting ten addresses in the USA to send cards to would cost me the thick end of £30 and I'm a student. Is there an option other than "US" or "International"?

Signed up. Thank you, this is good.

I would be happy with a Europe-only group too if enough people sign up.

Just signed up for this and quonsar-ing, both firsts for me. I am very fond of sending and receiving mail. Looking forward to it!

YES! This was one of the joys of the season last year for me. Thanks so much for organizing it again.

I have added a "Europe only, if there are enough people who sign up! (Please let me know if you still want to send if enough people don't sign up)" option to the questionnaire - if you have already signed up and you would prefer this, please let me know!

Hi needlegrrl, thank you for organising this. I don't have access to the link at the moment - I only have internet access through work and it's blocked. If I MeMail you my details would you be able to add me on? Sorry to add to your work.

This was so nice last year! Cards arrived through the new year and I loved it!

Cards arrived through the new year....
so this isn't necessarily Christmas holiday themed? so no hard deadline to send?
curious- this might be more possible than the Quonsar-one...

oops sorry now I see its called a Holiday card exchange.
posted by cabin fever at 5:07 PM on November 9

When I signed up I put a note that I'm Jewish and would love a Hanukah or definitely-not-Christmas group. But of course if that's not feasible I'll happily send my non-denominational seasonal tidings to all.

I'm in! I love sending cards. I just signed up.

Mizu, last year I sent creepy monster holiday cards and, as far as I know, no one hates my guts yet. None of the cards I received were heavily religious, and I am not religious. I think everyone just wants to send good cheer. :)
