HO HO HO - Merry… November

welcome to the 2nd annual drownedinsound dot com secret santa! how time flies, eh? last year’s actually worked pretty well, so don’t be shy - JOIN IN!

it works the same as your office secret santa; everyone who wants to take part gets their name put into a hat. each person draws a name (I’ll do that for you) and you then have to buy a present for that person! you post the gift out to your allocated disser then wait to receive a present from your allocated secret santa. once it gets nearer to christmas, we open them all together and try to guess who our santa was! look how much fun we had last time:

a few things to note before you sign up:
you will have to give out your address: this will only be seen by me and whoever your secret santa is, not posted on the forum.
you don’t have to give out your irl name if you don’t want to, but then your username will be written on the gift. up to you.
IT IS RANDOM: you have no say in what disser you have to buy a present for, and no say in what disser buys a present for you. if you are unhappy about that, do not sign up. I am not swapping names if you get someone you don’t know etc
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: do not sign up if you think you may forget / decide not to play. this will mean some poor disser won’t get their present :crying_cat_face: (also I can’t do anything about this so bear it in mind)
but that won’t happen because we’re all lovely people! yay!
there is no budget cap for gifts, but not more than Β£5 is suggested

EVERYONE IS ENCOURAGED! you don’t have to have a huge post count to join in!

so…how to play?
if you want to join in, just send me a PM with your name and address. there is a two-week signup window to give people plenty of time to join in (ie before 26th November) once I have everyone’s name, I’ll send you out a PM with your selected disser & instructions.

DEADLINE FOR SIGNUPS: NOVEMBER 26th
(which is AGES so if you try and PM me on the 27th you can get tae)

that’s it for now!

cheers

Conflicted. Probably best I don’t join as I suspect I’d be the person who doesn’t get their shit together and post things out in time.

Looks amazing fun though - enjoy everyone!
