My first year doing this. I'm really looking forward to it. :) Just be warned, my cards are not U2ey. :-[ I wanted something more Christmas-y than U2ey...but now I'm having second thoughts... :-[

Everyone will love them no matter what  :)

I hope so. I made them myself and each is unique. I wanted something special for everyone. :)

That is right, everybody will love hearing from you!  
My friends thought mine needed to be a little more Christmasy...so there you go.  

They also thought I needed to explain what they meant (cause I had to explain it to them) and I said, "no, U2 fans will just "get it".
And you will.  My friend Lisa couldn't understand what a heart in a suitcase had to do with U2....she thought I should explain what it was on the card.  LOL!

How many years have you guys participated?

I know I started in 2000...back when Angela was doing it...and I think this is my 6th or 7th year, but I took a couple of Christamses off when I was in Uni...too busy with Finals but I missed it terribly.

LOL!  I know hey?  But it is hard to explain that to people who don't love the U2 like us.

She was also wearing her U2360 shirt at the time (I dragged all my ladies to Vegas with me) so I explained it to her by using the 360 symbols on her shirt as examples.

Don't be nervous!  I was too, but I figure it's very much the thought that counts.

That is the best part...they will come in late December.  I just loved it when after all the Christmas stuff was over and the parties are all done, one day, there is a little bit of U2 in the mail just to make you smile.

You're gonna love it. And don't be nervous...nothing to be nervous about.

Some cards come with just a card and signed with a name.  Other cards will come with whole letters and photos!  I loved them all!

I am also including photos I took in Vegas of U2360 in every card, everybody will get one but all different ones.  I am kind of excited for people to get those.
