    It's that time of year again - time for Secret Santas! Here's how it works: you send, via private message me your name and your address and I will randomly select someone to send you a gift and someone else for you to send something to. In that private message, I also recommend sending in some ideas of things that you are interested in (hobbies, sports teams, etc.). It's not about spending a lot of money. Let's limit the price of the gift to $20 (not including postage).

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to either post them here or private message me. If you would like to sign up for this, please do so via private message.

    Let's have some fun this Christmas!

    Ps. This is a direct post from SomeGalfromCanada's post in wondercafe
    PPS. This is now an edited post, reflecting the change to $20

    Not to rattle any chains, but did we not up the limit to $20 last year?

    I thought it was $20 last year. I'm willing to spend that. In fact, I'd prefer it to make the postage worth it too. :)

    Halloween and we are numbered 13. Must be one more out there that would like to join in.

    By the way if 20 is too much for your budget this Xmas, regift or a Sally Ann find is perfectly

    okay. Right Pinga and group?

    Yep! $20 is just a recommended upper limit. No need to spend the max.

    It all sounds good. Reminder: to let us know of sensitivities, allergies, etc.
    We want it all to be good. Numbers don't bother me, but maybe it's easier to divide an even number...
    well I suppose so! *grin*
    I like to make people work... opening many things ....

    Blessings on this October 31st.

    If you do some kind of circle draw, an uneven number should work...... ie 1 gives to 2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5........13-1....... Am I mistaken?

    I always got my friend to do the picking. I am a klutz with numbers.

    I had a few little mishaps doing the draw for virtual Secret Santa last year. But it worked out in the end.

    If I remember rightly our 420 last year was just a general guideline. We weren't going to be too picky either way. And gifts can be handmade or re-cycled or just a lovely surprise.

    I recall one year wondercafe t-shirts went on sale half price and I sent one to crazyheart.

    The correct comment is "420 seems pretty high."
