Once signups close you are randomly matched with an exchange partner. You and that partner will then swap ornaments in time for decorating the tree for the Christmas season.
Who will you get? Will it be someone you know? Will you get something from an exotic place or something homemade? Will your ornament add to your "theme" of Christmas decorating...or will it start a whole new trend for Christmas in your home?
The Annual Ornament Exchange is a fun, exciting event that rewards year after year!
I will update this post periodically to show those participating in this year's exchange. Please check back here often or use this thread to ask questions.
Update 10/25/09 -- Below is a list of our participants so far and who trading partners are. Please contact your trading partner via PM here on the board to exchange information. If you do not hear back from your partner by 11/4/09, please contact me and I will re-assign you. We still have a few days left until our deadline and if you signed up and your name is NOT on here, don't panic -- I will have you paired within the next few days. Here are our trading partners this year:
Location: Pennsylvania in my heart, North Carolina physically.

I got that message on one of the sign ups too! I don't know if it was for the card exchange or the ornament exchange. I just figured that I got signed up but, the message popped up in error. I hope I'm on the list!

Last year I never recieved anything from my exchange partner. not sure if she fell off the face of the earth or maybe forgot. i do know that I was late getting mine out because to be honest I had it all labeled and everything BUT Mr. HollyJells put it under the tree thinking it was a package. But I know it got to where it was supposed to go. THANKS JEFF and admins PLUS all the MMC eople for making this time of year great. I always look forward to getting my cards and ornament. Oh is it bad for people to drop hints? Cuz if so I am gunna get in trouble over my next line- I like bears, Rudolph, and angels.
It's not bad at all to give hints ! In fact it will make it easier for your partner to find just the right thing !! Once you know your partner there is plenty of time to communicate on how and what you like to exchange or just keep it all a surprise. Making it personal is what it's all about !!
It is in giving that you receive the greatest gift !
