HO HO HO

by now everyone should have received the details of their secret santee (yup still calling them that) so we have officially started!

there are 29 participants in total, which is pretty great :blush: thanks for joining in!

I said in the PM I sent round that I would do a thread to figure out when we want to open presents, so here it is! when is the best time to do it? Sometime in the week before christmas? The last friday before the week before christmas? It would be nice to do it at the same time but it’s not really important if you can’t.

PS if anyone thinks they should be playing but I haven’t got in touch with them, please let me know ASAP via PM

cheers

I’d like to reiterate yer a good man for orgainising all this japes! :slight_smile:


#3

Cheers again Japes! Love this idea and it’s definitely getting me feeling all festive (much earlier than I usually would) :slight_smile:

So the last friday, the week before Christmas, the 16th?


#4

maybe i should just do a poll[poll type=multiple min=1 max=3 public=true]

  • friday 16th
  • monday 19th
  • tuesday 20th
  • wednesday 21st
  • thursday 22nd
  • friday 23rd
  • don’t care
    [/poll]

it’s also just occurred to me that this is probably better done in the evening rather than doing it at your work desk

Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―


#5

Haha I always forget / miss the opportunity for polls!


#6

I was waiting for someone to do a poll. I’ve never made one before! The fear enveloped me :slight_smile:

I can basically do whenever. As long as I’m not shimmying away at the numerous chrimbo parties I plan on attending (I’m only going to one :sob:).


#7

Christmas morning a la pocketmouse would be absolutely ace, although very impractical. Happy to do it whenever.


#8

hey japes is anyone getting you a gift?


#9

We should ALL give @japes gifts and then he can decide who gave him what. We’ll do this on a separate day, might take a while.


#10

yeah, I forced my way in there. no way I’m doing this and not joining in :slight_smile:

reckon I’ll probably be able to guess who it was from pretty easily

(thanks for checking though)


#11

oh good i was worried you were going to go present free!!!


#12

should we do friday 23rd then? last friday before christmas?

have got my present bought, but not yet sent. need to remember how to wrap things :confused:


#13

yep, I reckon the 23rd is good


#14

I already know what I’m going to do. Going to spend Β£6 not Β£5 because ohh it’s christmas isn’t it.


#15

Will everyone be at their normal address that late in the game?


#16

i was assuming the opening date doesn’t affect when people post stuff out


#17

ah course, yeah that works


#18

I went over budget!


#19

23rd is good with me too!


#20

I’ve bought the main bit of my present today. No wonder @saps threw himself down the stairs - it was bloody stressful!

21/22/23rd are all good for me, by the way.
