Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

I just spent way too long downloading and obscene amount of Christmas music from this post. And because I just watched New Amsterdam, and there was a The Decemberists song featured in the pilot, I started wondering if they've ever done any Christmas music. Or if any of their own songs have some sort of mention of Christmas. I can't think of any...

Haha, I tried to pick an icon for this and I have all of two icons from Christmas-themed episodes. This one I'm using, and this one. Makes even me wonder if I hate the holiday. (For the record, I don't, but I have become slightly apathetic in the past few years.)

All I want for Christmas...

I didn't do this last year, but it was fun fulfilling others' wishes, so why not?

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, 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 fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/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 life things (not fics or icons), 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, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their 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. 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.
