...coming to a chimney near you this December

Ho ho ho!

It's that time of the year again! This is the 10th annual Coldplaying Secret Santa *enthusiastically starts decorating the whole place* mulled wine anyone?

Here's how it works this year:

* You have the option to choose between sending a card to your own continent or another continent. For example:

Europe to Europe
or
Europe to North America, South America, Africa, Asia or Australia

* If you would like to join this year please let us know asap. The deadline for signing up is Tuesday 6th November, 11:59 PM CET.

We need the following information:
- Your name and address; please display it as you would write it on an envelope. The only person who will receive this information is your Secret Santa.
- Your email address (we need to be able to get in touch with you in case you won't reply to Coldplaying PMs).
- Secret Santa match preference: say "my continent" or "other continent" or "no preference". Please do not ask for a specific continent or country (otherwise it gets seriously complicated for Santa and the elves).

You can send your details to the SantaClaus account (click here to send the PM).

You will receive your Secret Santa match by the 12th of November.
Given our tight schedule, we only have 5 days between the submission deadline and when I send you your match, which is why I must insist on the submission deadline: please join before November 6th!

* A couple of important points:
- Send your card as soon as possible (preferably before December) so that it will arrive in time for Christmas! Use airmail if that option is available.
You can ask your local post office how long it will take for your card to arrive. In previous years some cards never arrived and some people received their card long after Christmas (January/February) so please try to send the card in time.
- When you receive your match's information, please confirm that you have all the info.

- Send a PM to the SantaClaus account after you send your card to your Secret Santa match.

- Suggestion: Take a picture of your card/package before you ship. That way, if there is any lost mail, you can at least share the picture and description of the items you had carefully and lovingly prepared for other Coldplaying members.

- Post a message in this thread after receiving your card (with a photo if possible so that everyone can see what your card looks like) - or at least send a PM to Santa to confirm that you have received it.

Love,
Santa

I've never participated in this, but am thinking about it. I'm 33. Should I feel too old if I joined in?

Of course not! People from all age categories participate every year. And 33 is really young. I'm bad at maths but according to the elves I'm 1,747 years old!

Speaking of numbers this year is the 10th edition of the Coldplaying Secret Santa so let's make it a special and extra festive one!
where do i send my adress to?
You can send me a PM here: https://www.coldplaying.com/forum/index.php?conversations/add&to=SantaClaus

I am not able ro send pm. There's error coming up!
which error? it might be because you just signed up, try to make some posts and try again tomorrow or so, I think it's a protection against spambots

As far as I understood, anything from a postcard to a package is acceptable and you can do as you wish or as your means allow it ! :)

Ho ho ho!

One week left to sign up for this year's Secret Santa!

Thanks to everyone who has joined already. If you've signed up, please check if your name is on the list in the first post. If it's not, check your inbox, I may have asked for a clarification. If I haven't replied to your PM and you're not on the list, please resend your PM (I'm very old and get confused sometimes).

Last year there was nothing in my stocking.
Either Santa felt that I was too naughty, or the mail elf lost my present.

Anyways, I'm in for it again. :)
