For many people it's yuletide. Others have other online gift, fic, and everything else exchanges that they love. But for me, fandom_stockingsays Holiday Fun like nothing else. Consider this my invitation to join me by hanging your own stocking up.
Here's the sign-up sheet - and I hope loads of people on my f'list sign up — because that way, I can fill your stockings, which gives me a great deal of joy.
I really want to emphasize that hanging your stocking in no way mandates that you fill anyone else's stocking. That's not what this is about, at least not for me. I guess that I'm being a little selfish, because this is the time of year that I love to write in, the time of year when I hunt down recipes I think people might like, or look for pictures that I can make into greeting cards with my incredibly tyro graphic abilities, the time I pore through peoples' wish lists to see if I can fulfill any of those wishes. Over the past four years, in fact, fandom_stocking has come to mean something very special to me in this holiday period.
So ... if you used to take part and haven't for a while, consider starting up again. If you've never done fandom_stocking, consider doing it, even if it's just to shut me up.
If you don't have the time or inclination I do, all my urgings to the contrary, understand. Consider this my one effort to pimp for what I think is a lovely little community.
