Make a post [public, f-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with] to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ["I'd love a Snap/Hermione icon that's just for me"] to medium ["I wish for ___ on DVD"] to really big ["All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."] The Important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa ]or one of his elves] could get in touch with you.
Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will be spread.
Surf around your friends list [or friend's friends. or just random journals] to see who has posted their list.
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. Once a wish has been granted, it will be crossed off my list.
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. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, 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 holiday special.
My Wish List
01. A fluffy/romantic story with one of my favorite pairings: Willow/Giles, Willow/Spike, Willow/Angel, Willow/Lindsey, Willow/Spike/Angel, Willow/Spike/Giles. (No slash this holiday.) At least 1000 words.
02. Willow/Lindsey icon
03. Wallpaper of any of the characters listed in #1. (Please leave room for desktop icons on left hand side.)
05. Anything off my DVD list at Amazon.com. These are all movies I have on VHS but want on DVD.
06. Donation to the organization of your choice.
07-10. I can't think of anything else, so I'm reserving these spots to fill in later.
