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. :)
Oh, that's so sad. Good Luck for this year !

Ho ho ho!

A reminder that if you want to sign up, you have only 36 more hours to do so!
At the moment we have a lot less participants than the past few years, the elves and myself would love it if more people joined

Alright, sign ups closed! If you have joined, please check if your name is on the list in the first post and if it isn't, send me a PM because that would mean I haven't done my job properly.

You will receive your match by next Monday.

I know others who are older including myself and it is a lot of fun believe me. Unless parcels are lost, unfortunately …

The elves just finished sending out the matches! Please check your inbox and confirm you have received your match.

Just some reminders:
· Please 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. Please send me a PM once you've sent it!

· 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. Especially certain cross-continental journeys can take a very long time.

· 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 the Secret Santa thread after receiving your card (with a photo if possible so that everyone can see what you received) - or at least send a PM to Santa to confirm that you have received it.

Let's get Christmassy!

Love,
Santa

Santa, HELP! I want in!! I’m very late as I had back surgery a few weeks ago and haven’t been here lately. The website gives me a site message board error when I try to get to the login screen! Any way you can match me to someone else who wanted in after the deadline?

I'm so sorry, but the elves were able to give everyone a match, so at the moment I can't give you a match unless someone else shows up very soon

Santa, can you put in @iamsue instead of me ? I've been meaning to tell you anyway, I have a bit of a problem: I had to go to hospital and probably will stay there throughout Christmas time :( and I'm not sure if I can still participate in the Secret Santa. I could possibly still send a card somehow but a card addressed to me won't reach me anymore (not sure if I can receive post in the hospital ?)

If you could swap in @iamsue in my place I'd be more than happy !

So sorry to hear that :( but yes I can swap your name for @iamsue.

If you could somehow find out if you can receive post in the hospital, I'm sure the elves would love to work something out for you

Very sorry to hear that. You usually can receive post in a hospital here in our country, but I guess it depends on the hospital. Considering we saw the same concert, if you are in a hospital in that city (even though I still think it is more of a large village) I am happy to receive it for you and drop it off in case the hospital will not allow post.

Thanks, I'll check and get back to you. Maybe I could still do something for someone.
But anyway happy that Sue gets to be in the Secret Santa now !

Thanks for the offer, but I'm nowhere near that city.

Just jump in to greet with people who need to go to hospital during holiday/Christmas season, take care:party: and stay warm:sun:, positive:idea: and strong:heart:~ may you get through the cure and have a full recovery soon:) :)
@SantaClaus Santa, thanks for your annual "matching" work... I did read somewhere (only recently) that Santa is indeed a saint/holy-magic man who brings blessing/joy/light/hope to people, especially who might be in greater need/hard times... May your dreams come true~:heart:

Visited some Christmas stores this morning to look for something nice.
Unfortunately, (to my match: I'm really very sorry) my budget didn't allow me to buy whatever this is:



yes, it's Santa in a bath. I don't know what happened to his other arm. Just felt like sharing. The world is a strange place

Is he scrubbing his back? [emoji23]

The Santa on the slide seems even crazier.
