Subject: RE: BS: 2013 Secret Santa tormenting can begin
So glad to hear from the research elf assigned to my gift delivery. My, you have a way with the spicy words!    Actually, Spiceland was not given its name because of the Many kinds of spices in the area though.   It was the spicebush Lindera Bezoin   which used to grow all over the area. The Quakers who settled the area named thetown Spiceland, because of the fragrance of this particular bush.    Although I am not one of them,   the Quakers are still in abundance in the area.   Their church is right in the center of town. So you might tell the rest of the elves that they best not get too tipsy on eggnog or other spirits of the season before stopping here.   I'd hate for Santa to be run out of town by one of the local Quaker leaders.
