Christmas Wishes

Ok guyz. On this thread you can post you're Christmas - wishes for Maria. Please only post kind messages and nothing stupid or bad about Maria. This messages will not be on the letter later on, so please forget these thoughts. It doesn't matter how long you're messages will be, I only want you to write kind things and nothing bad!
Walt says he can post the package to the WTA, and he wants this thread to be closed on December 15th, wich is a good date I think.
That's it guyz. Let's get ready to rumble!!!!!!

Makirians - We agreed to provide two options to get your Christmas message to Makiri. First, you can post it in this thread set up by Henner. This will be a public posting so everyone can read what you have written her. Sharing in this way is cool, and if Makiri does come look around our site she can read your message directly. Second, you can send me a Private Message or email and I will absolutely respect your privacy and not read the message. Your message is between you and Makiri, and it is also cool if you want it to go from your keyboard only to Makiri's eyes. Unless your computer is different than mine (I am a Mac user) if you click on the KirilenkoRulz next to this message you get a drop down menu that gives you the option to send me a Private Message. If you click on my avitar it will take you to my profile, where there will be an option to send me a private message. Also, please feel free to just send me an email to wprusak@yahoo.com - this will allow you to include photo's, electronic Christmas cards, and graphics. Please put "Private Message to Makiri" or something similar in the Subject so I will know not to read anything after opening. And I promise to delete all messages/emails after they are printed. A copy of this post will be posted on the Cheering Thread as well, so our friends who only go to that site will be aware of this activity.

I will be printing the messages, one to a page so you will have your own entire sheet, on my work printer a Canon PIXMA so I can do very high quality, photo resolution printouts. Photos and graphics will come out very sharp. After Henner sends me the formatted public posting, I will print out two copies. One copy will go overnight US Mail to the WTA Players Assn in Florida, and one copy will go overnight FedEx/DHL to either MMF or Dan. I will cover the shipping costs, not a problem. I will be closing both envelopes around 3pm (1500) US Central Time Zone on 15 December. The plan is to have the envelope at the WTA Players Assn office first thing 16 December, so they will have at least a week to get it forwarded on to Makiri before they break for the Christmas Holiday. And if all goes to plan, the package will arrive in Moscow between Christmas and New Years. Then MMF/Dan will hopefully get the chance to hand her the second package in Sydney a few weeks later.

I am sure Makiri will be humbled and grateful for all of the thought, time and love you put into these Christmas Messages, have fun with it.

Christmas Messages for Makiri - Final Instructions

It has been a lot of fun to have everyone make inputs to Makiri's Christmas messages project, but Luis is right, it is time for closure. You know the details on how we are going to get your messages to Makiri, here is what you need to do to get us your message:
1. Write your message as an email, include photos, electronic Christmas cards, grahpics, text (as this will be printed out, animation will not work). Please remember that we all want this to be a positive and encouraging package for Makiri to do our part to help her have a great 2006.
2. email it to me at wprusak@yahoo.com Please put Private Message for Makiri or something like that in the Subject so I will know not to read your message. I will need your message no later than 15 December.
3. IF you also want to make a public posting, cut your message and paste it into this thread.

That's it, we will take it from there and get it to Makiri. We will provide updates on our progress in this thread. If you mark your messages as Private, I commit that they will be deleted once printed. No one will see your message but Makiri. Thanks to everyone in advance, Makiri is not only the cutest player on the WTA Tour, she also has the most awesome fans!

GL is a Russina in disguise otherwise how could she speak Russian to Maria?

Just a reminder that in about 2 days (end of day Thursday) I will be printing out Maria's Christmas messages. If you wish to send one, just post on Henners thread, send me a PM or email to me at wprusak@yahoo.com If you use either of the last two options your message will be kept private.

Updates - We are just up to double digits of messages. Also, there has been quite an active dialog on the Russian site over the past few days on exactly when Makiri will celebrate Christmas. The bottom line is if Makiri is Catholic or Protestant she will celebrate Christmas 25 December on our calendar (Gregorian). If Makiri is Russian Orthodox she will celebrate Christmas on 25 December on the Julian calendar which is 7 January on our calendar. No one who has posted on the Russian site seems to know her denomination. But the question is out there for the next time Makiri checks in on that site, and if she wishes, she may tell us.

Even though I put my Christmas message in an electronic Christmas card and thus went the "private" route, below is the message I wrote for that Christmas card:
"Maria
Merry Christmas to you and your family! It has been great to be a fan this past year to share in all of the great times (China!) as well as sad times. I pray the New Year brings you health, happiness, a thousand friendships and a million smiles! May all of your tennis dreams come true, and may you have joy in your extraordinary achievements. You are a very special person. Love always,

Walt"
