Christmas Card Exchange - It's On!
« Reply #15 on: November 24, 2008, 12:24:02 AM »
It's time for the tenth annual U2 Fan Christmas/Holiday Card Exchange, a chance for U2 fans to send greetings of the season to fellow fans the world over!

To participate:

- Send a message to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and give us your snail mail (postal) address.

- In the e-mail, say what sort of card you'd like to receive (Christmas, Season's Greetings, etc. or no preference). In early December, I will e-mail you the addresses of fellow U2 fans to send cards to.

- If you wish to participate, plan on sending at least 10 cards.

- Please write in BEFORE DECEMBER 9TH if you want to be part of the Card Exchange. That way there will be time for cards to go to the very many countries represented in U2 fandom.

Thanks again for participating and have fun!

Do we use our real names, or our forum names?

I've done it for 4 years, real name, real address, found it totally safe.  Have received some awesome cards and read some pretty amazing stories. Nike motto applies here: Just Do It!

The Card Exchange Organizer Says...

Yes, please use your real name since it's part of your mailing address. As for the concern about addresses being posted, the only place you are sending them is to the card exchange e-mail address and not posting it for everyone to see. I am the only one who accesses that account and at the moment am putting together a spreadsheet with everyone's info.

When I start sending out lists for the card exchange, each one will consist of 20 names and addresses. Yours will be on one of the lists and only the other people on that list will see it since these are the people you will be exchanging cards with. (You need to send cards to 10 people on that list minimum, but are welcome to send more if you wish.)

I've been doing this since the first or second year. It's awesome. Angela started it off a long time ago.

I even received a card from Claire in Ireland that used U2 stamps that year they came out!  OMG! I actually framed that one... a letter from Ireland addressed to me with U2 stamps??!!  SCORE!!

Some people send CD's others share playlists, concert pics, whatever. It's a lot of fun!

...so you see Virginia, there IS a Bono-Clause.

And you give, and you give, and you give Christmas cards away....

Ahhhh, I luv U!  Thanks for sharing those memories....I also received a music CD and some concert pics.  Was hoping that someone sent me a piece of confetti from City of Blinding Lights...lost mine!
Remind me after 12-25 to write about one of the Christmas gifts I just sent my South African friend--can't right now because she'll be reading this and the surprise will be revealed! 
It's a beautiful day....to send the Christmas Cards!!!!
