Please don't blame my shipping methods, I was quite surprised that I didn't had a fitting box in my house :/

Nonetheless there will be surprises in there.

I'm glad she colored A, B and C, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to distinguish those letters. ;)
Is this a mathematical pleonasm?

Question: Once Festivus is over and everyone reveals what they got from their Santa, will the identities of the Secret Santas be revealed? Are we meant to try to guess who our Secret Santa is? Or is the fun in not knowing?

Personally I'm fine with either scenario, but since the country of origin is hard to miss on a tracked package, some Secret Santas might be rather easy to guess.

You can PM me after December 23rd if you haven't figured out who your Secret Santa is, sure.

Given that I asked participants to include a card or letter, I think nearly everyone will know who their sender was.

I thought the "secret" in Secret Santa" was that nobody would know? Had I known, i might have put something better in there (just kidding) ;)

I made sure to keep my note anonymous, but I doubt the recipient will be wondering for long.

Got my package today, so tempting having it sat over there on my desk...I'll wait until the proper date though :D.

Kept my note anonymous as well (though I'll be pretty easy to guess).

Much to my surprise, Santa tracked me down to my winter roost. Less to my surprise: he is of course from Scandinavia! Should I post some pictures yet? I had to open the parcel to figure out what it was. It's a good 'un.

Which reminds me...

Photos are to be posted on Festivus or soon thereafter.

If for some reason you don't think you'll be around on Dec 23rd, you're welcome to PM me photos and I'll post them to the forum when the time comes.

I'll be flying back from TX on the 23rd, so photos might be a day late. Lots of variables that afternoon.
