ARE YOU FEELING A CHILLY SENSATION FROM THE TOP OF YOUR CRANIUM TO THE TIP OF YOUR FIBULA? DO YOU SUFFER FROM COLD-HEART SYNDROME SOON AFTER NEW YEAR'S ARRIVAL? HAS WINTER GOT ITS FRIGID FINGERS AROUND YOUR THROAT... uh hem, Uh I mean YOUR THOUGHTS CAUSING YOU TO WONDER IF YOU WILL EVER FEEL THE WARM SENSATION OF THE HOT SUN BURNING THE FLESH FROM YOUR FACE?

Well then -- it MUST BE TIME ONCE AGAIN FOR SOME BLOODY VAMPIRE VALENTINES - 2023! Or if celebrating LUPERCALIA is more your style. (Meaning - Lupercalis "pertaining to Lupercus," whose name derives from lupus "wolf" and per Wikipedia - Lupercalia was an ancient, possibly pre-Roman pastoral annual festival, observed in the city of Rome from the 13th to the 15th of February to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility.

Take a bite out of your winter doldrums, after holiday blues - share some love - just in time for Valentine's Day!

It's fun - It's easy - a great way to warm up your iced over winter heart and shine a little light into the darkness!

Here is how it works:
Post in this thread if you wish to exchange greetings with other Halloween Forum members, and indicate if you have a mailing limit for the number of greetings you wish to send out and where you're willing to mail to... USA, USA & Canada, Everywhere and Anywhere. (It can be a letter, greeting card, postcard or note - handmade or store bought. We love them all!) - Then exchange addresses via private message with others who wish to exchange valentines, have fun!

Aiming for a mailing deadline of February 8th to get the Valentines to their intended in time for Valentine's Day. Here's wishing the next few weeks of winter will be a little bit warmer thanks to sharing the love with Vampy or Wolfie Valentines!

A Reminder - Many of us love to add a little SWAG in our cards please make sure not only the weight BUT the size of your mailing is within the USPS single stamp limit. The USPS is getting more strict with its limits...

Also - Life happens if something should keep you from sending out your greetings please let those you have said you'll be exchanging with know. Nothing feeds the darkness more than pondering the what ifs...

NOW - let the love bites begin! Buwaa ha haaaa!

It has been a fun spooky and vampy valloween time with the card exchange, and I loved all of them. Unfortunately our postal service is extremely slow and I worry they lost a card. Hallowmas Bookitty I haven't received yours but still hold out hope.

When is the next exchange and what is the theme?
