By cleaning my desk, I noticed this Christmas Card I bought many years ago. I never have had the courage to send it to anyone. And NO, I won´t send it to Mr. Rickman either (though I think it would put a grin on his face).
But it also made me wonder, if you had the change (and the courage of course) to send Him a Christmas Card, what it would look like. So I thought it would be a great idea to make a contest out of it while we´re waiting for the Sweeney Todd Madness to arrive.
Contest
Would you be so kind as to share with us:
your most creative/wonderful/naughty/thrilling/astonishing/endearing/extraordinary AR Christmas Card.
Your contribution will be rewarded with points for: participation, originality and creativity.
The winner waits a REAL High Res picture of AR...
This contest will end Sunday evening December 9th at 11.59 pm (GMT).

Go!


Oh, needless to say I won´t send your contribution to AR...

Mhmmmmmmmmmmmm... I think it would be very, very hard to actually get him (and not Ms Parker!) open a Christmas card... I'm sure he gets flooded by those!

I thought the "You're loved all over the world"-chain was a great idea, that some fans sent him for his 60th birthday. Cardboard box chain-rings from all over the world with everyone writing down her (or his, of course) favourite Alan-film as well as their address. They got joined to an enormous garland and were sent to him. But even then he didn't answer personally. The "Thank you"-letter was by Ms Parker. :-(

I won't waste another thought on a Christmas card for Alan, therefore. *Sigh*

If he wasn't loved all over the world, he would still have time to answer all his mail personally. But maybe then, I would never have discovered him :)
I can understand your resolution not to waste another thought on such though. I will probably never write to him for the same reason. What could I write that Mrs Parker has not read a million times before.
The thought of the above card being read by AR made me laugh out loud though. Peek, you should really send this one. Not so funny if only Mrs Parker reads it though. ;)

Probably. And then she would write a standard answer :(

Somehow I totally missed the "You´re loved all over the world" thing. But I agree with you in thinking he gets plenty Christmas Cards each year.

That's a GREAT card!
And a brilliant idea. Not sure I'll have ideas or the time for it, but I'd sure like to try.
Oh and by the way - I would like to get an Christmas card. I think you should have my address already. Tell me if you don't and I'll email you.

Thanks for saying you like to try. LOL
Of course you´ll get a Christmas card. I still have your address. I do hope this card won´t take as long as the previous one to get to you! If I remember correctly you notified me it arrived end of January...

It´s out of topic, but I wonder, while I was reading your comments, Is Parker Mrs. Parker or Ms Parker???? :-)

I really haven´t got a clue. Maybe one of the other LJ-´ers?
