Originating as a term in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, an unbirthday is an official reason (364 days a year) to gather people you really like to be silly, merry and whatever you require from birthday shenanigans! Unbirthdays are also perfect if your true birthday falls on ‘taken’ days like Christmas or even on the 29th of February in a leap year.

So Let's Celebrate one another and send a little bit of cheer!

Unbirthday Cheer Packets will include:

  • A personalized unbirthday card (open to sender's interpretation)
  • A note to your partner about an unbirthday wish of your own
  • A "Drink Me" item (does not have to be tea, as some may not drink it. Leave ideas for your partner to read below)
  • An "Eat Me" item (leave ideas for your partner to read in the comment section below)

  • WRAPPING IS REQUIRED! To maximize the fun, we must include something for our partner to unwrap! Eat/Drink items can be wrapped together or separate. Wrapping that is clever and creative, or just plain kraft are both welcome (since it’s likely gonna get torn up anyways). However, it is NOT acceptable to just throw in the items and mail away as is. PUT CARE IN YOUR PARTNERS PACKAGE. Although it’s not everything, presentation is important in this swap!

NOTE: In (what I call) true-Alice spirit, any participants must be open to receive brightly colored, oddly shaped, asymmetrically fun, or delightfully strange, Disney, Victorian and/or Steampunkish themed items. I will read profiles before assigning partners and ban any that appear to be hard-to-please or stressful.

This swap is meant to be FUN (adjective INFORMAL: amusing, entertaining, or enjoyable)!

eat me- I love chocolates (no nuts), I like unusual and unique (not gross), I love fruit candy as well (not a fan of cherry, grape, or watermelon, licorice).

drink me- as long as it is not cherry, grape, licorice or watermelon I am fine with any drink me item!

@ScorpioRising29 is a flaker. Beware

@Helene50 Thank you for the warning, although it came too late for this swap. She flaked on her partner and I am going to angel. I have knowledge of her now and will ban for all future swaps.
