It's great to see this swap back in rotation! I participated in several of the original rounds and it was SO fun! It's really neat to see all of the clever ways the holidays are interpreted.

I can't join this month but I'll definitely be in for a later round!

Have fun!

Double reply, at the risk of sounding a little over excited:
What holidays did everyone pick? Here's what I sent in:
1. Jan 31 - Inspire your heart with art Day
2. Jan 24 - Peanut butter day
3. Jan 22 - Talk like a grizzled prospector day

1. Feb 4 - Thank a mailman day
2. Feb 10 - Be electrific Day
3. Feb 11 - Make a friend Day
4. Feb 17 - Random acts of kindness Day
5. Feb 26 - Tell a fairy tale Day
6. Feb 7 - Send a card to a friend Day

Cool - we choose some of the same ones Smiley

1. Appreciate a Dragon day (16th) (friendly ones only please - think Toothless or the dragons from Anne McCafferys' Pern books rather than Smaug!)
2. Burns Night  (25th)
3. Inspire your heart with art day (31st)

1. National Weddings Month (Our anniversary is 29th Feb - yes I did mean 29th!!)
2. Read in the bathtub day (9th)
3. National Kite Flying day (I know I'm in UK, but who can resist flying kites?) (9th, some sites say 8th)
4. Random Acts of Kindness Day (17th)
5. Tell a Fairy Tale Day (26th)
6. Polar Bear Day (27th)

****ORGANIZER'S NOTE****

I noticed that the questionnaire did not mention anything about sending to a country other than your own and since we have several people from other countries who have signed up, I need to know who will be willing to ship to another country.  Please let me know.  Thanks!
