I don't really think it matters unless you want to be level 10 sneaky. Suspect

No. Not really. It's easy enough to do with the Postal Regulations today. But I don't name my Secret Santa in the open. I may send them a PM. santa

Fester in mystery for eternity. More fun that way. Smile

I still have no idea who was my Santa last year. I thought of him today as I smoked SG Chocolate Flake in my Tao and Ulsted pipe I received last year.

So thanks again Santa!

I heard a rumor that they had to add another shift at Smoking Pipes right after I sent out the PM's the other day. I don't know how they keep anything in stock this time of year. santa

Don't know about y'all. But I think I have everything. Just waiting for the proper time to ship. The etailers tell me they are getting supplies out as fast as possible. Santa's elves are working themselves overtime. santa

I admire y'alls restraint.  Sometimes Secret Santa's can't stand it and ship way early.  Just a reminder, we are 13 days from the target shipping date.  With one exception probably.  I suspect next Saturday and the following week will be busy with packages overloading the Postal service fleet.  If you can actually wait till closer to the 7th, that would be great. Be sure to post here when you have shipped.  And post if you have received.  I log this so I can keep track of where we are at.  You may decide for yourselves if you want to open right away, or wait till Christmas day/eve, etc.  But if you send something that might remotely be perishable, like a bottle of Bulleit Rye, or some food product, be sure to let me know and I will pass that on so it gets opened when received.  Post lots of pictures!  santa

While I am not interested on participating in "Secret Santa" for personal reasons, I do know that it's a fun thing and new members may be interested in this.

I also know there is likely there are some rules for doing so.

That said, if it's not too late (or even if it is), it may be a good idea for the pivot man in all this to one again post/promote the process here for new members.

Happy Holidays everyone santa

Xmas has always been a difficult time for me as it is for many other folk here, despite this I absolutely love the spirit of Xmas, not the lights and all the weird decorations, the depth of kindness and consideration to our brethren shows me just how special we can really be when we try. I love giving gifts to people, knowing the the happiness and the small ray of sunshine these can bring to someone makes the process one which gladdens the heart and soul. This Secret Santa thing is a many splendid effort yo guys go to each year for each other, shows just how amazing the members of this site are, give it a blast if you're in the US folks, it'd be cool if we could start up something like it for us folks in the UK next year, strikes me as a wonderful thing to do for each other, we'll just have to see what next year brings.

Yep. Everything's purchased and boxed. Figured I would get it ready now as I'm sure I will be less than on top of things when the baby gets here. Expected him by now, but apparently he is inheriting his mother's stubbornness. At any rate, I'll be dropping mine in the post in the 7th. Happy holidays all.

I have meticulously gone over all of the tobacco I have. I have ordered more. I have carefully labelled, and dated everything. I have taken only the best and purest, most wonderful and sought after stuff for myself, my my secret santa should get a wonderful package of crap I don't want.

I've had all the tobacco and tobacco-related stuff ready to pack for about a week...have a few little odds-n-ends to toss in yet, but I'm pretty much just staring at the calendar waiting for an appropriate shipping date.

We are now about a week from the target mailing date for most of us. There is some leeway. The Postal Service is claiming to be able to deliver Priority Mail even pretty close to Christmas day and still be on time. But I would not push it. This could be the year that cyber sales go though the roof and overload the shipping services.

I am mostly prepared. Just a simple boxing and hauling into the Post Office. santa
