Way to go Santa. santa


It's just a fact since 9/11/01 that the PO seems to want accurate info on packages. Not suggesting we out anyone. Keeping Santa a secret kinda adds to the old holiday spirit I grew up with. Even if Santa isn't really a secret. sunny

Nice haul gentlemen! Carlos, looks like you received a kings ransom there. Go Santa!

I really like the anonymity of a Secret Santa. That being said, I also have no problem with people knowing who sent them what. It just isn't so secret when that happens. Razz

Location alone will give it away, often. *shrug* I think it's just as much fun to discover who it is upon delivery day! I was on pins and needles for a month! It was great! Cool

This was my first year participating in Secret Santa and it's been great. It would be next to impossible to make it completely secret with a post 9/11... ricin... unibomber... etc... delivery system. Unfortunately, we live in times where an unmarked package from Santa Claus causes the post office to immediately call in the bomb squad.

I agree with Kyle that... waiting for the package to come had me on pins and needles too. It made me feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. Getting to open a box and sort through all the different stuff was a lot of fun! I think Carlos has done a great job organizing it... Bravo!... I look forward to hearing about and seeing the final remaining deliveries... and I'm already looking forward to next year.

Cheers & Health,
Milan

I'll third that! Thanks Carlos and all of the brothers who participated in this year's Secret Santa. This was my first year too and I had a blast. Next Secret Santa is only 12 months away and counting. How will I stand the wait?! cheers

Think we could do this bi-anually? Or maybe at major holidays?

Does the Easter Bunny bring gifts? rabbit
How about the 4th of July? sunny
Maybe a Halloween package? farao

OTOH - if we do this too often, the True Meaning behind it would be lost...

I borrowed PB's rules. Thems big shoes to fill. If he gets some free time he is always welcome to take running the Secret Santa back over as I think he's more entertaining than I am when doing it. Very Happy

We are doing something a couple times a year. keep watch in the spring.


By my count we need to hear from two of the Brother's. I know one is in the mail and could be there as soon as tomorrow. Buddy Springman tells me via email that he has received his. When he gets some free time I hope he will pop in and let us know the details. We are always at the mercy of the Postal Elves, so keep your fingers crossed. santa

Ok, they are all on the way. Better watch for various forms of delivery though. Apparently Santa has enlisted the help from other than Postal Elves. santa

I look forward to next year. It will be a hoot.
At the very last minute, I thought of the perfect gift from the local area, as so man of ya'll have done very nicely.
My wife however, said that she didn't think untaxed liquor could be mailed. I'll come up with something!

Ya'll have some dangerous imaginations.

Can we get an amen, on the gator head as the benchmark?

I wish now I had taken a photo of when I opened the package and the snout was just peeking out above the news paper padding. . . .

Henceforth, all involved will remember "The Gatorhead," and the benchmark it represents. I've got some ideas for next year.

Compliments to all participants, but particularly to the organizer of the event and to his predecessor. Merry Christmas to all.

The gator head is like the fuzzy slippers that travelled in a couple of box passes a few years back. Cool

So you're saying next year, if I draw your name, you want the gator?

"T" -- a brother with apparently 0 reputation (according to the new system) Very Happy
