Step One
- Make a post (public, friends locked, 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 so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
- Surf around your friendslist (or friends friends, or just random journals, or [info]holiday_wishes/[info]wish_list) 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.


1. The best bread recipe ever.
2. Socks. Wool if they aren't itchy. Something that will go well with my sandals.
3. A sturdy natural rope net for my glass fishing float. It's about 8 inches in diameter.
4. Art for my wall. It can be most anything. My taste in decor is suspect, as [livejournal.com profile] i_control_me will attest to.
5. A gnome.
6. Full set of Pirastro Eudoxa gut violin strings. Not brilliants. (http://www.quinnviolins.com/qv_eudoxaviolin.shtml Medium gauge, non-stiff D and G, ball end E.) They can be purchased one string at a time too.
7. A prayer. For me to Whomever you like.
8. Quilt. A heavy one, so big it could fit 3 of me in it's folds and leave room for friends. A quilt you would want to hide underneath for days.
9. Postcards of what you personally consider the most beautiful place in the world.
10. Arm warmers, midget sized please. I left mine at a studio a few weeks ago.

I have a pair of socks that are brand-new. They are orange, white and gray with skull and crossbones. They're yours if you want!

So, a postcard of Vermont...and I will share my family's bread recipe that has been passed down from my great, great grandmother.

Vermont, hah! Oh and family bread recipe is win. Complete win. If you send it, I'll guard it with my life.

My mom keeps asking me to make bread or rolls every Thanksgiving because she knows it's the one thing I'll fuck up.

You have to remember to brush on the bacon grease as soon as it comes out of the pan.

I've got 7 down too, and it will take some consideration, but I might be able to come up with #4 as well. XD

Can you link me to 6? I've been looking online but not sure I am looking at the right things at all

These here are the most reasonable I've seen so far.

Medium gauge, non-stiff D and G, ball end E.

They can be purchased one string at a time too. I should put those details in my post. <3

I know it isn't on your list but I'm going to make you Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake so you can have it in your mouth.

ETA: Actually, I've got 4, 5, 7, and 10 covered too!
