Holiday Wishes

Step One
- Make a post to your LJ/blog with a list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and LJ/blog-related ("I'd love a icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for Harry Potter on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want. Keep the 'non-tangibles' to a's hard to get world peace into an envelope, after all. We all know we're good folk. Let's just be about the STUFF for this.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ/blog, or link to this post so that the joy will spread.

Step Two
- Surf around your friends list to see who has posted a 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.

- There are no guarantees with this project, 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 day by granting a wish for something they really want.

1. Manos del Uruguay color #43
2. letter's from all my friends, or e-mails or something, just updates on how everyone is, esp. the people I don't hear from a lot. Or even new friends.
3. cute socks (I love socks. toe socks, knitted socks, colorful socks, any socks! Socks are just fun. You have a bad day, you put on a pair of pretty socks, and they just make you feel good)
4. the rest of the _Folk_ serise...Folk Mittens and Knitting in Estonia
5. know, I am pretty easy to get along with...I am not totaly sure I can finish this list out. I mean, I am sure there are things that I want, but nothing that I can really vocalize. Or nothing that can fit into an envelope. I suppose I could just say, go to my Amazon wishlist, but thoes are things that yes, I want, but not like, "oh, these are really importnat". Maybe that it is. What is really important? Maybe I am just in my usual birthday funk, maybe I am just stressed and don't care any more because graduation is comming up and that has burned me out. I don't know.

OK people, feel free to finish out the list. There are 5 more things to put, so comment. Then I will finish out the list.
