Subject: BS: Secret Santa Time for 2007!!!
From: Liz the Squeak
Date: 30 Aug 07 - 04:36 AM

The festivals are tailing off, festive cards have been on sale in the shops for a couple of weeks (coming just after the 'Back to School' offers that appeared before the children had broken up from school...), leaves and berries are turning red, the sloe gin is on standby and my hair needs trimming - all this means it's Secret Santa Time!!

If you want to sign up for Secret Santa, you have until SEPTEMBER 30TH 2007 to send me a PM with your postal name, postal address including country and postcode (zip code) and posting preference* to be entered into the annual melee that is the Secret Santa Draw.

*tell me if you want an overseas or only your own continent/hemisphere.

RULES:
Gifts can be hand made or bought.
There is no price limit but we suggest a cost of around £10/$20 - A CD can be bought for this amount.
What I say goes. I'm in charge but not responsible. I'll act as courier and go-between but I'm not responsible. I don't care if you get the same Santee - that's half the fun!

SUGGESTIONS:
Something from your local area or a CD you were involved in.
Something you've made yourself.
Lots of little presents are often more fun than one big one.
Tease your Santee with clues and obfuscation.
Food regulations can vary between States and Continents so check before you post anything - no garlic sausages to Australia please, it upsets the koalas.

Joe has assured me that anonymous posting on Santa threads will not be treated as naughty, unless it's a Spam attack or someone being totally out of order. Just be consistant in your use of pseudonym.

Let the games begin!!

"it is threads like this, and people like you, that give the encouragement (if any is necessary) to the absurd commercialism of Christmas, so that it is 'in our face' for *4 damned months* of the year.

Stop it! "

Just to reiterate (there's a word for a Thursday lunchtime...)

Even if you have sent me details every year for the past 3 (is that really how long I've been doing this???), even if you haven't moved off the couch, let alone out of the house, you MUST PM YOUR POSTAL ADDRESS TO ME AGAIN!

Otherwise I won't know where to send the begging letters.

As for commercialism - I don't like the way Christmas has become commercial either, but sometimes it pays to be prepared. The Secret Santa starts this early so people can cut down on postage by using the Getaway attendees as couriers, take advantage of cheaper rate autumnal travelling and post early so the poor postal workers aren't innundated with garlic sausage and disgruntled koalas.

There was no public revelation of Santas but if you wish, I can discretely inform you as to who you should have had.

Good! Great minds think alike, Liz! Just this morning I was thinking I needed to start a thread about Secret Santa early shipping and the pleasures of finding a variety of interesting, oddball, and easily shipped items for my (or your) Santee.

Fall is almost in the air here, it is in the quality of the light. And I have already seen holiday displays (okay, they were left-over plants at the nursery from last year, but they were out where I could see them!)

Let the games begin! I'll send my PM pronto, Liz.

Ah... we have this every year - Admittedly I did start this a few days earlier than normal because I'm going to be away from a computer for a while... but there's no reason to piss on other people's chips just because you don't like to hear about Christmas. If you don't want to see it, don't open the threads about it. Especially don't open them if all you're going to do is whine about it getting earlier every year.

Go start your own thread and whine in that, but this one usually gives pleasure to a lot of people, stay out of it please.

Rest assured I will meet the end-of-September deadline, though!

There is a department store here that used to be called Foley's (now it is part of Macy's) that I used to visit because they had beautiful furniture and kitchen stuff (that I couldn't afford, but I'd walk around the mall with my toddler getting exercise and looking. There was an antique huge Japanese black lacquer screen in their furniture deptartment that I adored and would visit whenever I was out there.) They always set up a discrete corner of the store with holiday stuff right after Labor Day (early Sept. in the US) because they had a few customers who shopped early and mailed stuff overseas. That was enough to get the creative juices flowing, gave me time to think of small things I could make at home with my daughter (and then my son, when he came along) or items I liked I'd save for or go get on the day after christmas for half price. I don't care for the massive displays of ornaments and such, they all blend together and are just too much.

Yay, I'm in. I've already had my eye on a few things for this coming season, so it's not too early for me.

My 2006 Secret Santa somehow entirely overflew my chimney, and I received nothing, but I'm ready to try for a second year. I really enjoyed having a Santee!

... I must remember, this time, to start picking up local knick-knacks to put in my Santee's packet. ... Little things I don't usually pay attention to, but someone from another part of the world might find quite interesting.

(that's part of the fun of this global version we've got going on here)

CapriUni - this is a good time of year, if you are anywhere near a tourist area, to pick up local stuff, tacky or otherwise, that might be good for the Secret Santa gig.

We're lucky in Maine - there's always lots of lobster and moose stuff at good prices, so I can make sure the package is full and interesting!
