Event 2014 Christmas Ornament Exchange
Jul 23, 2014 - 8:48 PM - by Jeff Westover
We are pleased to announce the opening of the 2014 Christmas Ornament Exchange -- our 9th Year of this merry event!

Pay close attention -- we're taking this in a fun new direction this year.

Since we've been around so long and many of us know each other well, we have decided to add an "Open Exchange" this year.

What is that? It is where YOU pair yourself up with your own partner -- no waiting on us for formal instructions or process. If you want to exchange with someone, just reply in this thread that you're looking for a partner and find another kindred soul looking for the same. The open exchange has no oversight, no start or end date and the only rules are what you and your partner decide.

For those looking for a spicier adventure in ornament swapping we introduce the Premium Ornament Exchange.

Our old format for the exchange presented some challenges in safeguarding full participation. Well-intentioned participants would sign up, pair up and exchange information but as the holiday season grew close and things got busy some would neglect their exchange partners. Some would receive ornaments in exchange after Christmas, some would never receive anything at all.

So, we've come up with the Premium Exchange. Here is how it works:

Go to the Exchange Page and hit the "buy now" graphic. You will spend $20 to participate -- but don't worry! You'll get your money back. Once payment is received we will collect some information from you. Then our crack staff will go to work finding just the right partner for you. YOU WON'T KNOW WHO IT WILL BE. You'll only receive an address to ship to and some brief comments about the preferences in an ornament by the receiver.

You will be given instructions on when to ship your ornament. Once we receive confirmation from your exchange partner that you have delivered the ornament, we will refund your $20.

If something happens -- deadlines are missed, your partner forgets or gets too busy -- we'll be watching the whole process. If your partner won't deliver MMC will deliver on behalf of your partner.

We're thinking this will be the best way to ensure that everyone gets an ornament on time this year. It's your choice -- the open exchange or the premium exchange. Either way -- happy ornament shopping one and all!

Question? WLCP: Should we Skype?
Jul 29, 2014 - 6:25 AM - by Jeff Westover
It was suggested to me that we incorporate a massive Skype session as part of the World's Largest Christmas Party this year...a kind of virtual ugly Christmas sweater kind of gathering.

What do you think of this idea?

How would we do this? What kind of new activities could we bring to the table via Skype?

Vanderbilt Women’s Basketball Proves…They Can’t Sing
Jul 28, 2014 - 12:55 AM - by ElfBot

We’re not knocking anyone here. But YouTube has made stars and they’ve made fools. Here the Vanderbilt’s Women’s Basketball Team gets in the Spirit of Christmas and we give them credit for that. But we think they should leave Jingle Bell Rock to the pros:
