There were only an exclusive few takers last year but good fun was had by all who did take part.

I am happy to organise this again.

Who is interested?

You're not burned out by now? :-)

I was thinking the other day that the process, as long as it takes, probably needed to be initiated soon.

It would be nice to bring back a few former players, or invite new ones to join.

Here is last year's thread. The reason this one is allowed to run in the music section is because to play the game properly we log out and come back as hint-named guests to tease the recipients.

Why isn't this in BS!! Below the line....

Cool your jets, Tim. These are allowed above the line because of the nature of the game - people have to post as guests to tease the recipients of their gifts. Any other remarks criticizing placement will be deleted. This is an annual one-off thread. ---holiday-mudelf

I took a year off due to reasons I won't bother going into, but I guess life is back to the point where I can try again. Maybe I can think of some fun stories again.and get inspred.


One thing I do know is that I was thinking about coming back when I found myself singing a couple of songs one night recently that I had learned through Secret Santa presents.So Count me in again.

Or someone claiming to be me claiming to be someone else claiming to be me. As usual, "Disguise is de limit!!" Try to all be legendary in your hinting, and I'll look forward to fondly. looking back to my present when it's passed to me in the future.

'Til then is now,

I might like to join this year, it sounds fun, but i'm a little worried I won't know what i'm doing. But surprises are fun, both creating and receiving them.

There are hints and past year's thanks and such. The gifts should be modest and small so they can ship easily and we try to get the notifications out early enough so things going overseas arrive in time.

hsemp1 I will give everybody a name and address of their personal santee. It is then up to them to find a suitable gift or gifts to suit the person they are sending to. There will be a list posted up of each person's likes and dislikes to help you choose a gift.

The reason the thread is allowed above the BS line is because santas often log out, sign in with a suitable but false name, and tease their santee about their gift in a christmassy way. You can check out old threads to see how this works.

Hand made items and recordings from santa's place of origin are often part of the gift package. I have a much treasured Jacqui Morse shawl that I got when she was my santa many years ago.

I have become the organiser because I now live in New Zealand and home made treats are not allowed because they may contain biohazards which would, potentially, destroy our export crops. It is also very expensive to post down here. I loved my Secret Santa gifts when I lived in the UK.

Hope this answers some of your questions.

There used to be a limit on the cost of gifts but I can't remember what it was, about $20 if memory serves.

Sarah, you do a good job as a Santa in return. Through the years of doing this, I have been both Santa and Santee to a number of you and have always enjoyed the giving, getting and teasing immmensely.

How about we each send a PM to someone we've had as a Santee or Santa before and invite them to join?
