    DECEMBER Weird Holidays -- Due Dec. 31, 2021

    Swap Due Date – December 31, 2021
    Sign-up-by date – None
    Withdraw-by date – None; just communicate
    Number of Items – 3 for 3
    Number of participants: Unlimited
    Media: Open (except for digital and photography)


    Who knew December could be so weird?


    Some examples: You can celebrate National Blue Jeans Day (Dec. 5), International Mountain Day (Dec. 11), Gingerbread Decorating Day (second Saturday of the month), National Cocoa Day (Dec. 13), National Candy Cane Day (Dec. 26) or Pledge of Allegiance Day (Dec. 28).


    You'll find many more bizarre December holidays at Checkiday (my personal favorite), HolidayInsights or TimeandDate. If you have another reference source, feel free to use it. Choose any 3 holidays or commemorative weeks/months, and create 3 different ATCs that celebrate the weirdness.


    Requirements


    · Send 3 different cards.
    · Your name, user name, swap name, location on the back of each card
    · Cards must be ATCs (not APCs).


    Media


    All media are welcome, except for digital or photography. Please keep cards flat. No bulky embellishments!


    Mailing


    · Do not send envelopes. I will provide them.
    · Include a large self-addressed label.
    · PM me for my address when you are ready to mail. My North Babylon, NY, address is correct.


    Postage


    U.S. players: Please include one forever stamp.
    International players: Please include one U.S. global forever stamp or $1. I can also accept PayPal; please contact me for my email address.


    Deadlines/iTrader


    Cards must be received by Dec. 31, 2021. Please allow sufficient transit time.


    A host card is appreciated, but in no way required. If I’ve missed anything here, please PM me.

    And, yes, the little old lady is reading her book in Van Gogh's bedroom.
