RULES (Unless specified differently by the icon maker):

This is a LJ community for the posting of holiday and seasonal icons, walls, headers, & banners. Please be polite, comment on the icons and other graphics, save the graphics to your own computer/server/photobucket/flickr account, and credit the icons when uploaded to your user pics page, if the icon maker asks for credit.
Do not hotlink! Hotlinkers will be banned. Do not steal icons and claim as your own. Thieves will also be banned. Off-topic posts and spam posts will be removed asap. Spammers will be reported to LJ and will be removed and banned from the community on first offense.
SOME RULES FOR ICON MAKERS:
1. Please use the tags that are listed to tag your posts. I am adding tags asap, but if you see any missing that need to be added, please let me know. Thanks! A list of tags for the comm can be found here: http://holidayicons.livejournal.com/tag/
2. Please title your posts, and preview no more than three-to-four icons, i.e. above the LJ-cut tag. All of these must be holiday or seasonal icons, and work-safe (added 10/3/13).
3. If your icon journal is semi-locked, or locked, or friends-only, you may still post here, but do provide that information in each and every post.
Thanks to all our wonderful icon makers!
