🎅🎄 Secret Santa V: sign up thread 🎁 🎅

HO HO HO Merry… November

Can you believe it’s SANTA NUMBER FIVE?! I’m sure we could all do with a little extra festive cheer this year, so why not get involved? If you have entered before you know how it works and if you haven’t then PLEASE 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 £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 one-week signup window to give people plenty of time to join in (ie before 2nd December) once I have everyone’s name, I’ll send you out a PM with your selected disser & instructions.

DEADLINE FOR SIGNUPS: November 25th

that’s it for now!

cheers

I’m putting in extra special effort in this year on account of having nothing else to do

Yey, thanks @japes

I would love to take part again but am not sure how others feel about posting to France?

we have people playing from abroad every year! usually no problem, just have to make sure you get your gift posted nice and early.

seems more fun sending something / receiving something from overseas, but up to you
