Holiday Card Project 2007This year marks deviantART's fourth annual Holiday Card Project!

Last year the Project received well over 1200 holiday cards sent in by more than 700 deviants from 44 different countries/political regions.

Extra cards were given to various hospitals in the U.S. and Canada for their staff to hand out to patients.
