It's that time again! PLEASE read this carefully.

Secret Santa is where you sign up and agree to buy and send a $20 gift to a person who is assigned you. The gift is a $20 value, it does not include postage! NO ONE knows where their gift will come from! A Santa will send you a gift. This is a ton of fun! Don't be left out!

Last year one Santa emailed her person and told her what she was sending her. PLEASE don't do that, it ruins it for your person. Keep it SECRET!!

Here's what you do

EMAIL ME at [email protected]

Make sure you add my email addy to your safe list and check your junk

filter because I'm going to reply to your email so you know I got it.

When all entries are in, I will email you a name and address of someone

for you to get a gift for. (Around Nov.1st) Or earlier!!!

The gift is $20 in value. It can be home made.

[SIZE=14pt][/SIZE]

DEAD LINE to enter is October 21st!

[SIZE=12pt]We ask that you do not sign up to do this if you don't intend to follow through! In yearspast, there have been people hurt because they were not sent a gift. If you are under 18, please make sure you check with your parents that they can supply you with a gift of $20 value to send to your person.[/SIZE]

LISTEN. Each year we ask that you not sign up unless you WILL follow through and send a gift out. And each year people crap out. That is not fair to everyone else and not nice that someone won't get a gift.

GUESS WHAT? Anyone signing up and then not sending out a gift will be made known to everyone (outed) and BANNED. By the rules of Mary Lou!

Please, be good Santas!

We ask that you mail out your gift by December 1st to be sure to give

packages plenty of time to get there during the busy mail season.

So many people made me feel bad last year because even though the SIGN UP POST WAS PINNED FOR A MONTH, they begged to be included after all the names were given out and it was too late. SIGN UP NOW before the deadline! Oct 21st

If you live in Canada and want to mail a gift only to someone in Canada, TELL ME AT THE TIME YOU SIGN UP. Same goes if you live in the USA and don't want to be a Santa to someone out of the USA. Keep in mind that we get people from Overseas that want to play too.

Once the names are given out, please follow through.

Here is what you need to send me at [email protected]

Name

Postal Address

Forum Name.

Are you OVER 18?

Any preferences of gift from your Secret Santa?

Would you be upset if you got a name from another country? (postage could be expensive)

WHOOOO HOOOO!!!!! Let's get the party started!

Since I have been in charge of this, I work VERY hard at making sure that no one is left out. I'm hoping that you all help me make sure that we have another year with 100% gifts gotten! If you can be an Elf (if needed) for someone who doesn't get a gift from their Santa, please let me know. Elves are awesome!

If you email me and you don't hear back within a day or two, email me again or PM me here.

Ok get those emails titled SECRET SANTA rolling in! :saludando:

Remember, this is a $20 gift PLUS shipping!!

We usually get around 100 people or more signed up. WHOOO HOOO!!!!!!!

PLEASE!! When you sign up, write down hints for your SANTA in the email to me!! I will pass the hints on when I give out the info.

Nothing harder than getting a name of someone you don't know and having no idea of what they like! So be an Angel and give a hint!!!

If you need help or anything, just ask me! I'm great at the secret stuff!

I NEED to know your forum names when you sign up.

AND some of you are not saying if you're willing to mail gifts outside your country or if you prefer to only mail within your country.

And don't forget to tell me gift ideas for your Santa!!

I will reply to your emails so you know I got it. If you don't hear from me within 24 hours, holler at me again! I want everyone to get to play!

I don't know about everyone else......but I love it when your Santa puts a note in with the gift telling you a little about them.
