We thought we would see who would be interested in doing a Christmas card exchange and possibly a secret Santa exchange. If you would be interested, pm me your address and let me know what you want to participate in.

For the Christmas card exchange, it is simple. Just send cards to the people on the list you will get.

For the secret Santa, there will be a limit of $30 and the gift(s) can be for the recipients bird (s), the recipient, or both.

This will be a world wide event so we need your decision by the end of the month. I will draw names for the secret Santa and get them out in the first few days of December. Hopefully that will give time for gifts and cards to make it by Christmas.

We will do a big reveal on Christmas day of who our secret Santa was (if you can figure it out or if they told you) and what we got.

This is a bunch of fun and we sincerely hope you all join!

Of course count me in for both as well!! I sure hope we get a bunch of folks joining in.  It makes trying to figure out who your Secret Santa is so much harder.  thumb

Do you still have my address Debra, or do you need me to pm you.?  confused

I might just do the secret Santa as in used to do the cards years ago and spent ages writing them and a small fortune on stamps and only got a few back in return. No I know its all about the giving, but I felt quite disappointed as I was looking forward to receiving cards from all over :(

No problem on the Christmas  Card exchange Jules. I totally understand, it is getting so expensive with postage anymore.  sadboy3

You will love the Secret Santa exchange. Last yr was my first time for it on the other forum and it was a blast.  laffhrd I made a thread of all the goodies my birds got with photos and captions as if they were the ones talking and thanking their Secret Santa.  :hehe2:

In yrs past on this forum the members who were on back then always did what they called their Ornie Exchange. Everyone bought or made a Christmas  tree ornament for each participant and sent them to them. That was fun too, but tiring for me since I was one of the crazy folks who hand made mine. :faint:  dmblaf

So we now have a good start on our Christmas  Card and Secret Santa exchange. Come on folks, don't  be shy.  sad8 Your bird will love the gifts they get from their Secret Santa better known as:

'Santa Macaw'

I have done the present exchange before with another forum. I made someone a bookmark with a cross stitched dragon fly, don't think I'd have time to make another now. I know she still has it though x

The ornament exchange sounds like it was fun, and something to treasure forever  thumb

Oh the cross stitched bookmark  sounds like it was a  super idea to make for gift exchange. I used to do a bit of cross stitching.  It does take time to finish one.

The ornament  exchange was really fun and most were in some sort of bird theme. But that was in the past here with members who never come around anymore. Seems like a lifetime ago and sad that most of the members of yesteryear left. I miss so many of them.

I personally  feel that Facebook  has killed the participation  of forums like this one. And as I travel the net to several of the other  forums I belong to, I see that the majority  suffer from lack of participation  from their members  the same as we have suffered here.  cry

When will I know who to buy for please as I could take some time to get to the person, posting from the UK :)

I agree with the Facebook groups taking over, three forums have closed in the last three years due to lack of use and interest, such a shame  cry

I agree, it is such a shame that FB has taken over forums! Give me a forum anyday, rather than FB!
