[Edited -- extended sign-up period only] By December I've usually had about all the "Holiday Cheer" I can stand. From the incessant and repetitive music to the gaudy overload of flash and sparkle everywhere, I begin to really HATE this time of year. (On a gut- level, I so totally LOVE it all, but....) So, how about you and I have a moment or two of "Scrooge"-ness and just be prickly, grumpy, & grouchy, without apology? It'll give us a little stress relief AND maybe a small, irreverent giggle too.
Send 2 partners a very small package with at least 3 items carrying a "prickly" anti-holiday theme. You might include some "barbs" in this DEcelebration: pins, needles, fake barbed wire (i've seen it!), silk cactus leaves, black mittens with thumbtacks poking out from inside the fingertips. Sugar-free candy? (Who needs more sweetness when the whole world has gone icky with it?) Fake snow? (Those of us living in the warm parts of the world get really sick of all that SNOW worship.)
Make it silly. Make it fun. LET GO OF SOME OF THE STRESS. Send/share whatever conveys your general weariness with all things HOLIDAY.
Best of all, in true "Scrooge" fashion, keep the cost (before postage) to ZERO, nothing, nada, zilch! SPEND NO MONEY. Scavenge your closets, raid your attic, borrow or beg from friends, but DO NOT support the shopping madness. :)
TEH RULES: *Flaking out, failing to send IS NOT part of the whole Scrooge-y theme! If you don't want to give/send, don't sign up. I WILL CHECK PROFILES/ratings. *No mold, mildew, or other gross-outs!! Do not send what you'd be insulted to receive. *Keep the package small...the postal people are stressing out too! *READ/FOLLOW customs restrictions. (Look for my "handy links" in the Comments section below.) *I will not angel this swap. (Scrooge wouldn't either.)
