OK now, boys and girls. Santa Mom (aka SRS) has the join-up-now thread going, so please don't miss it. THIS thread is for adult discussion on the Santa/Santee process. It is never too early to make snide comments on what you plan to send or hope to receive! Personally, I'm hoping for many many beer mats, complete with dehydrated beer.

Good afternoon Ms Joybell

No hints yet so I've gone back to 2009 to see what you said then.

Mmmmm, chocolate. Now there's a thing. Cadburys, or Green & Blacks or that American stuff? It all depends on what my elves can find. Do you like milk or dark chocolate? Does chocolate get through Aussie customs?

I'll try and get your giftie in the post as soon as possible. I'm hoping that it might get there in time for the Yule celebration.

Hello Santa. Hurray! Nice to meet you. Just posted my hints. I just love presents. I like to leave it up to Santa but I do like bits and pieces of things about your part of the world. The natural world in particular. Dark chocolate tends to give me headaches these days but milk is OK. Don't know how customs is about food but it is hot here.
Sooooo you're over the sea somewhere? Hmmmm. Or ---- pretending to be. Hmmm.

Stilly - a beer mat is a piece of cardboard, round or square, usually printed with adverts - mostly for alcoholic beverages - placed on pub tables for standing your drink on. They can be quite interesting to read, sometimes and have become collectible.

Hello there Nancy!

The elves and myself (to say nothing of Mrs Claus)are having a lovely time here, finding you a stocking.....then we will be looking for stuff to stuff in it.

By the time Christmas comes we will all be stuffed.

Rejoice!

My wise, kind and generous Santa speaks!

Don't worry! I'll take "Be Good(e?)" to a quotient level even Chuck Berry can't surpass (That is, I'll stay out of jail for any man acts).

If you have done your homework in the archives of past Santee-hood, you'll already know about the two good luck House Brownies, Hash and McGhee that keep watch over my Laurel Maryland town-shack that any scout and/or delivery elves will have to come in contact with and who know all the other little folk in the area. And Molly, my beloved watch-cat who was always harmless enough to any wee folk anyway, has passed on, so there's nothing to fear from that end.

Secret Santa presents traditionally are not opened until Christmas, but are the first things opened once Christmas has arrived.

If your elves are also Syrup-tishuss I'll leave some pancakes out for them if nobody's u-syruped Mrs. Butterworth in the pantry.

I'll leave it to your sleep deprived elves as they go hither with their hither-than-thou attitudes and yawn to keep circulation moving, as I'm retired from the post office and don't have to sort magazines any more.

I can't drink alchohol anymore what with the diabetes, so the lure of beer mats escapes me these days. I DO own a Narragansett beer tray designed by Dr. Seuss. Paper, I don't collect on the whole.

That's all for now. Thanks for getting in touch so early. I hope that the messages will keep coming.

The sleigh is getting loaded up good and early
Just a few shopping days to go and we should be skybound
Just wanted to wait and avoid collision with any large rocks flying around in space at this time.
I hope you are being VERY good
Oh No - DUCK! is it a meteor - NO! it's a wombat
Splat!

Have no fear, I know you've been a good lass. Well, have a little bit of fear. You're so easygoing that your hints are 'way too general. I mean really, "What kind of music? Folk." Well that narrows it down a bit, doesn't it? No hopes, no dreams? How about a ring size (No, I don't plan to propose.) I'm gathering things in the USA, so is there anything you'd like that's easier to get in the New World? Stuff you've heard about and always wondered about? How about foodstuffs? Sweet, savory, ingredients for your own cooking? Help!! Love from your slightly panic-stricken Santa

OOOooh! Hello Santa!
Sorry to be so general! I am waaay too easygoing I guess, but honestly, I like most things and am not overly fussy. Chocolate is lovely but I am less keen on the mega strong darker kinds, except for baking with. I love mint sweets.
Music.......I love most music really, with one exception......modern progressive Jazz - it makes me feel nauseous to listen to it! Far too random for me. Other than that, I find music & song like oxygen....necessary to live.
I like learning about traditions from around the world, so if you have any in your area, that is always interesting.
I have no big hopes and dreams, I am pretty happy where I am at the minute, Ring size? I really have no idea!

I almost - ALMOST - gave away my treasured mudcat shawl tonight. A dear friend had a long layover at the local airport and I drove out to visit. She was widowed earlier this year, a shawl would have been perfect, except she has probably made one for herself by now, so I held onto it. I use it myself. But they are wonderful gifts, aren't they?

We need to kick this up a notch. With Dec. 1 around the corner I'll send out a few names and addresses for folks who asked for cards, and maybe we can get a few more players for that. If you want a card, or want to send a card (and haven't already told me so) send a PM and I'll mix it up. I could use a few more participants from the US and Oz.

If I knew when they were coming, favorite foods could be set out. The local small folk like to party hearty!

To say nothing of goodies if Santa him/herself should drop by. But I trust that great fun is being had gathering appropriate materials. I hope to hear from you soon.

My elves have been meeting some of your elves in secret for top-level discussions, all sworn to the utmost secrecy, for that's the way THIS particular operation works best. We've had one or two slight hitches and snags along the way, due to the poor health of one or two reindeer (who have wilfully refused their vitamin supplements and, as a consequence, suffered from bad colds and sinus infections) and Mrs Santa has just had to spend time with her family, thus leaving me to do even more than usual at this busy time of year.
But you don't want to hear about my troubles, do you? What you need to hear, I think, is that a selection of goodies have been obtained and will be despatched very soon indeed. Hoping to make it a personal house call, but all now hinges on those reindeer. You just can't get the staff these days.

Thank you for the update. You seem to be the male part of a married couple and it sounds like you know me.

The assorted wee folk can carry on in secrecy, but often, when they don't, banter and story lines are allowed to develop, getting the most out of threads like this one.

I will try to sift out a clue or two from whatever else you wrote.

And if you DO make a personal call, let me know what sort of food to put out for you in a Santa sized portion along with the Purina Reindeer Chow. Hash fancies himself quite the gourmet chef, but without sufficient planning sometimes he has to send out to a carry out for childs portions if the number of elves is not known in advance and sometimes has to stand in the Elf-Service line, which takes up vasluable time.

Previous years' elf parties have been chronicled in older threads.

Do what you will. We will be ready.

Your Santa is hard at work but suspects that your pressie may arrive somewhat later than usual due to, er, certain reasons which are entirely out of Santa's control. Therefore, he has just had a little something posted from inside the UK. Note: It is not your present. It is, however, something concerning your Santa's corner of the world and was penned by your Santa's father. Santa hopes that reading it will keep you occcupied until Santa can finish preparing something more suitable. Surely by Candlemas ...

By the by, do you already have a "This Is Us" order in? Enquiring minds want to know...

Ho ho ho!
Santa

Well, well, well ... it appears a little bit of misdirection can go a long way.   Some of your deductions are on target, others not, but I know I've given you very little to go on. Suffice it to say, my dear Severn, that my delivery team have a good idea how to find you, that they will need to stop for refuelling along the way and that they're more accustomed to a glass of mulled wine than eggnog with their mince pies.
Which reminds me that I must take the latest batch out of the oven! And that's not as easy as it should be as those reindeer still afflicted with the snuffles have been using tea towels to blow their noses on instead of tissues.
Ho, ho, ho ...

Santa, I am being very good. Well, not actually, now that I think about it, but although I am misbehaving, I am doing it very well. Surely that counts for something...

Anyway, I wanted you to know that I am very much looking forward to Christmas. I will be all moved into my new "home" in a neighbor's garden shed by then, and I hope to have it looking all lovely and Christmassy. Not sure if I can manage my traditional Christmas Eve Santa fare -- a plate of lasagne and a glass of red wine -- without a kitchen, but I will do my best for you.

I assure you that I am and have been a good man, however easy it seems to be able to find me. My Mint Spies should be through checking out the coming year's new coins in time to mull over in their noggins your whinings so that all elves, reindeer and Santas will have nothing whatsoever to complain about with the best Gourmet fixings this side of Steve Lawrence's singing partner/wife.

The mention of tea towels (to match your short sleeved shirts?) would seem to indicate that you were a Brit, or at least had visited there. One person I know over there was with me when I shopped for one to bring back home. I'd have never thought of using them as hankies for snuffly reindeer to deposit their panky in. "Run, Run Rudolph", indeed!

Speaking of Rudolph, he's the rare example of the "headlight in the deer" look.....

You say you've been baking mince pies from children's thighs with which to feed the faries? In that case, I'll leave you prepare food for your own expected visitors.

Eagerly awaiting your prescence and presents,
Your Santee

Short sleeved shirts? Children's thighs? Too much egg nog, methinks, Severn. And quite what your level of goodness has to do with my delivery team knowing where you live I have no idea, and nor do any of my elves.

However I'm sure you mean well and on the scales of "naughty or nice" I have no doubt how you'd weigh in, or I wouldn't be contemplating the small sack of goodies that will be coming your way. It is a smaller sack than we might have hoped, for various reasons to do with supply, ways and means and general lack of opportunity, but it is sent with much love.

To go with the mince pies, if you can't manage the mulled wine a nice glass of vintage port would be most welcome.   Rudolph and the boys would be happy with the traditional carrot.

We haven't done the card thing before, and I don't remember if we actually thought the cards should be "secret" or if it was simply a chance to send a nice card to someone instead of a gift. So I'll open this up a bit.

If you would like to send a card to someone you know is participating in this secret santa and/or card thing (in addition to an address you may have already randomly received) send me a PM and ask for the address of that person.

No addresses will be published in the thread, and none to unknown folks (since you have to be logged in to send PMs, that's one filter right there) but if you don't want your address given to anyone from mudcat who wants to send you a card, also send me a PM. You might put "Don't distribute my address" in the subject line. I doubt this will be the case, but I have in the past run into folks here who were dealing with stalkers or annoyers, and I can understand not wanting addresses released in that case!

Your parcel is on the sleigh and the reindeer have promised they will look after it until it arrives with you. They hope it will be there before Christmas and have said they will do all they can to get it under your tree in time. If they don't it will be beacuse Rudolf likes to stop at every single house and eat up all the carrots and mince pies that have been left out for him.

I will be pleased whenever things arrive. I have scattered relatives and friends and I will be getting and giving gifts for some time. I trust and believe, for MudSantas have never let me down, bless their collective generous hearts. It still has a chance.

I know the US Postal Service seems to be going to Hell since I retired. After 37 years they're finally taking one of my suggestions seriously! But I still have faith in them, as well, or at least those from lower management on down.

I've gotten to know a few of the wee folk, too, through Hash and McGhee, and though a bit erratic and with a tendancy to party hard (I've never had any leftovers from the feasts I've put out over the years), I trust them implicitly, as well. Never has there been any complaints about reindeer.

So however it arrives, I'll be greatful and content with the content.

Waiting is part of Christmas, and alone, divorced and with friends and family widespread, it's up to me to do it. Don't worry, I could do it in my sleep.
