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.

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.

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.

I made friends (and even visited a few) from the Secret Santa, learned about distant places,received music, some of which I have learned and still sin, and have had fun writing elf stories and odd poetry. I am glad that what I sent was well received. I would hate to see it passed away like the Chat Room and a few other things I miss. Things change and people come and go. Some die and some get old and some just lose interest.I hope that Secret Santas,the tavern, the recovery ward and such can manage to live on somehow, because they deserve to.

1. What is your age range? 70, but don't let that get in the way, e.g. I go to anime conventions as well as folk festivals. Numbers have a way of shifting, especially when you reach an age you used to think was old.

2. Gender? Female

3. Do you have a favorite color? My mother told me my taste in colors came out of a crayon box. It depends on whether I'm going to wear it or look at it.

4. Favorite authors/type of book? Folk- (lore, customs tales, music), also fantasy and science fiction, interesting history books, books by/about storytellers, singers, etc.

5. What books have you really been wanting? see #4, also, if you're in England, anything by Taffy Thomas, Duncan Williamson, Stanley Robertson. Used is just fine

6. What type of music do you like? AngloAmerican trad, middle eastern, contra and country dance tunes. I love the local cd's I've gotten from Secret Santas in the past

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? If Santa is in Canada, anything by Penny Lang, Wade Hemsworth, Chris Rawlings, or somebody you like. If in England, anything by Taffy Thomas, or something you like. I'm also big on spoken word, music hall, and humor recordings.

8. What movies have you been wanting (DVD/BluRay)? Remember, it must be for Area 1. Songcatcher (yes really), Story Finder

9. What is your t-shirt size? XL

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? I more accumulate than collect. The house doesn't need anything, but if something tells you to get it to me, that's fine. I'm not big on cutesy stuff, though.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Reading, counted cross stitch, history re-enactment (mostly for the neat classes) cooking.

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? silver

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. Please remember that this is a menu to choose from, not an invoice list! *Used books, cd's, dvd's are fine, even preferred.*
I am omnivorous, and I've liked every Mudcat Christmas ornament I've ever gotten.

14. Remember that "negative hints" such as allergies might also be helpful. Please don't break your neck (as my gran would say) over this. Have fun with it.

There's some sort of Elfin Flu epidemic this year and I thought I'd volunteer to go someplace warm to help out.

2. Gender? F

3. Do you have a favorite color? Guess

4. Favorite authors/type of book? I'm reading some of the older mysteries by Lawrence Block lately.

5. What books have you really been wanting? Rephrase: How many books have you discared lately because you have way too many?

6. What type of music do you like? Folk, blues, jazz, classical. I have lots of classical.

7. What CDs have you really been wanting? Yours

8. What movies have you been wanting? (specify VHS if you don't have a DVD player) I'm in zone 1. DVD. I have NetFlix and stream stuff so I can't think of anything in particular.

9. What is your t-shirt size? L; if it's cotton that isn't pre-shrunk, Extra Large. Unless it's meant to be a sleep shirt, in which case, a couple of more X's in there are great.

10. Do you collect anything? if so, what? Dust, dog hair. . . nothing I can think of that is easy or cheap to mail.

11. What are some of your other hobbies? Photography. You could send me one of those new mirrorless models. I've used Canons for years but I'd happily switch to Nikon. ;-)

12. Do you prefer gold-tone or silver-tone jewelry? No-tone; I'm allergic to enough things that it's probably best to skip jewelry unless it is the kind of thing that pins onto clothing, not against the skin.

13. Please include anything else you feel is important that would help your Secret Santa know what you would like. Keep it small, don't stress out finding extreme novelties. I enjoy checking out the newspaper things are wrapped in, if it's that kind of gift, to see what is going on in your neck of the planet.

14. Remember that hints about things such as allergies etc are also useful to your Santa.Coconut and it's various products (sodium laurelth sulfate, for example, is in soaps and shampoos and lotions). Details.

Stilly,

Texas is a large place. I took the wrong transportation at the depot and ended up on the Silly River Stage to the wrong place. Thankfully, where there are rivers, there are bridges,and where there bridges, there are trolls underneath. Unfortunately, with times as they are, many of our kind are reduced to picking the pockets of the drunken transients who have also taken to sleeping under bridges, but will think they lost their belongings downtown somewhere. Times are tough all over, and there's more to worry about than gruff goats on the roads these days.

I met a young troll named Bridgette who kindly instructed me how to get to the banks of the Stilly from the banks of the Silly and how to tell a "Stillian" from a "Silly 'un"....

But I have already found some amusing trinkets on the way, and now as I approach a rustic span and hear a voice sweetly singing "Oft' In The Stilly Night", I know I have found the right place!

Maybe I can finally pull up a bridge and take a nap, or even two if they're small....

She has stepped outside to take a look at the yard while contemplating shutting things down for the Winter, raking the leaves, pruning the shrubbery and brushing the sage. She's looking great, especially for one of Stilly's Sage Group. What's more, she actually looks like her description, which my Elf Trainer warned that some Santees, male and female, occasionally are guilty of giving out sizes, weights and hair colours with discrepancies in either direction. Hopefully, there will be no unhappy returns of the day after.....

Speaking of such things, while searching for high quality presents for Stilly, I noticed that the pawn shops in Texas had three stars over the door rather than the three balls I'm used to seeing and finally realised why they call it "The Loan Star State".

My job being over, it's time to go home, so I give my special thanks to my new friend "Highway Pat" Troll and to the wonderful hospitality to be found in general under the bridges of Texas. I've got my bags packed and I'm ready troll.

Instead of the traditional chimney Santa uses and old ventilation shaft to get in and an ore car (pulled by a mule) to get out. I'll never forget the year that Santa kicked back a quart of egg nog, forgot to exit the ore car on the left, slid down the dump chute into the stamping mill, and was only rescued when eight tiny reindeer stamped the stamping mill to pieces.

If they tracked it this might be the time to check to see if it is still in transit or shows as "delivered" - to the wrong place, or stolen, would be the options. Knock wood that hasn't been too much of a problem here, and I have a place where parcels can be set out of sight.
