It's that time of year! I'm ready, are you?

Please oh please oh please read this entire post to re-familiarize yourself with how it works. I think it answers all your questions.

Now! To recap how it works: all you do to sign up is geekmail me your name and snail-mail address. Tell me how many cards you would like to mail out; mailing more than one card was an option many chose last year but choosing to send one card is also absolutely great.

The only real rules I want to employ are these:

1. Please do not sign up to send more than 20 cards.
2. Please do not expect to receive any more than 10 cards.


[If you do opt to send multiple cards, I do not guarantee a "one for one" exchange rate (ie, if you send cards to 10 geeks, I am not guaranteeing you'll receive exactly ten in return). I think everyone will be pleased with the number they receive, though, so don't worry that if you send 10 out you'll only get one back. It will be way closer to ten than that.]

There is no gift element here -- just a fun way to say "happy holidays" to geeks around the world. The variety of holiday cards people have sent over the years was very broad, and it was fun out of all proportion to see cards from other lands, homemade cards, game-themed cards, etc. Everyone has really had a great time with this.

And please be clear that people of all traditions are welcome and encouraged to participate. People of no tradition are welcome and encouraged to participate, for that matter. Part of the charm will be in receiving cards from cultures and traditions different than your own, if you ask me!

Make a card, buy a card, either way, just reach out and make a new friend. Wish a German geek "Froehliche Weihnachten!" and tell your new suntanned geek friend on Oahu, "Mele Kalikimaka!"

This year you have until November 18 to get signed up.

There will be a microbadge awarded to participants.

PS: Folks who live outside the USA: Please make sure that you show me exactly how your address should appear on the envelopes of cards being sent to you. Address formatting around the world varies wildly and I don't want anything getting lost.

Thanks for setting this up again. I had a ball last year!

I'm in I'm just crazily busy preparing for my wedding which is also in Dec, eek! Nearly missed the deadline on ordering the ring in time!! Eeek so stressed! hehe. I'd like to do more cards this year, but I'm also organizing 3 other Xmas events as well as the wedding because I don't know how to relax... So unfortunately, I think only 5 cards for now

~zombie I'm running on 4-5 hrs of sleep each night...I need more time ~

Never refuse to do a kindness unless the act would work great injury to yourself, and never refuse to take a drink-under any circumstances.
