=Everyone knows what a secret santa is right?
For our 6th year in a row, it is time for the Secret Santa!!
This will be the first SS since merging, so I hope to have some new names-
For those who joined us last year, we hope you will participate again-
Well in case you don’t know what I am talking about- , here is a quick summary.
There is a sign up sheet below- and you sign up, telling me you wish to participate.
Then I take the names and pick them randomly. Each person, gets paired up with someone on that list.

That way, every person gets a “surprise”
So what do you need to be willing to do?
Easy as 1-2-3
1- You sign up- all signups must be before December 1st, and you should be willing to send by December 10th, as so that allows enough time for your partner and you to receive one another’s gifts. Although you can send ANYTIME sooner, and in the past it has been helpful to mark your package SS (under sender for Secret Santa) that way, in the midsts of trades, no one tears open their gift unintentionally


2- The price limit is 20$ please do not send anything that cost you more than this- to keep gifts reasonable. If you have something, that is ideal for such a gift and you wish to use that instead- by all means this is an option. But if you will be making a set of dvds, please limit yourself to 20.00 of media for example. At the same time, please be considerate about what you do spend…after all it is the time of giving, and no one wants a cheapie santa clause statue from the dollar store…save that for the neighbors you don't like- (grin)


3-This is very important, make SURE you can complete this exchange- its very awkward to sign up and ship, only to find out your partner didn’t…no one wants to feel left out.
So that is the basics- ask any questions-
And feel free when you sign up to mention things you have an interest in..
For example if I were to sign up- quick reply such as
(savage) I am a heavy duty collector of Coca Cola- I love winnie the pooh items (just winnie, not tigger/eeyore or piglet) and collect vintage toys from the 80's such as smurfs, care bears, and so on..
This would give someone an idea of something to get me for example.
Feel free to upload pictures of what you received, as the topic forum will remain stickied until everyone has received--
Its always fun to see others surprises and gifts- and makes the whole experience that much more fun to see, or even just read what others got!
SO I hope to get at least as many signups as last year!!
Remember the more the MERRIER!!=

Count me in, please! Lilo and Stitch, Doctor Who, Wonder Woman, Stargate(s) are among my favorite things.

It wouldn't be Christmas without this Secret Santa!

I just bought the perfect gift for mine. (I hope!) I really, really hope he/she likes it.

It's the kind of thing I'd get for myself, for my favorite genre.
