I want to play. I'm almost didn't see this. Glad it showed up under the last post column on the main Forum page. My first exchange here was the SSS, I had an original SSS and was a lifesavor.

I was just wondering because others might miss it too. Why is it under Black Friday instead of the Off Topic Forum/Gotta Talk Lounge?

I'll email you today. Thank you for organizing these exchanges.


it is holiday related and will be in Holiday Discussion forum once it is up. It is just here for now

I'm going to wait and see if I sign up for any this year after the fiasco I had last year with my notebook getting stolen :( But if I join I'd likely do all but the card exchange (cookies are already in mind)... :gdlicklips:

Eve, People might want to include any food allergies or other types of allergies so they don't get something that makes them sick.

i know it adds up quick for the card exchange $0.42 stamp times 50 people could be $21. and then cards even cheap ones adds up at that many. It is easier when we started earlier this year, if you put put $5 away in Sept, Oct, Nov, and then in December it will be easier for some. if you end up with extra stamps you will eventually use them so no biggie just an idea

Thanks Eve for doing this for us! I hope Eve doesn't kill me for making this comment about the card exchange .. but last year my kids were upset that the cards came addressed to me only (they can't open my mail) so I'm sending my info with "& family". I know most of us have kids .. so if you want them included on the envelope for the card .. I don't mind adding it on yours if you'll add it on mine!

... and despite the fact that the holiday exchange is not an "official" GD event, if anyone wants to send home baked cookies to their favorite GD adminstrator, feel free :P

With the cards, you send to everyone who signs up. It may be 20 people, but it may be 100. You have to send to everyone. I didn't sign up this year. I was scared that I could not afford it and it take away from my SS gifts. I have something very special planned for my SS. But last years was so much fun!

Also know that you will get a list of everyone's real names and addresses when the list is
finalized sometime in November.

But Jarerice is right .. you send a card to everyone on the list and you will get one from everyone on the list back!

I know it wasn't in Eve's post, but I was thinking of getting everyone to list their shirt and shoe size. Just in case. That way Eve doesn't have to ask someone later if they decide to buy a gift like that.

I'll start.

Small shirt

5 and a 1/2 shoe (sometimes a 6), but most of the time 5 and a 1/2

I have no idea how apo works so i can not really answer you. I would assume it would not be a problem.
