Holiday Wishes

I'm feeling tons better. Have been working a moderate schedule for a few days, and I even made it to the gym this morning.

We bought a nice wreath for our door yesterday, and I am feeling Yuleish. I figure it's time to post the Holiday Wish Meme, because I had so much fun with it last year. Please do the same! It doesn't work if a bunch of you folks don't hop on the bandwagon.

And, if it happens that you've already done it, could you give me a link to your list in comments? Danke.

Here's the procedure:

Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ, which contains your list of holiday wishes The wishes can be anything at all, from simple ("I'd love a Mal/Inara 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, 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. Make sure you post some version of these guidlines along with your list.

Then, surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, 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.
