    Man I'm on the fence about participating this year. Last year was freaking great, and #acidlacedpengiun was the best Santa. But shipping my gift to US of A, was crazy expensive :? I guess I could just buy everything on Amazon and have them ship it directly, but then how am I going to be able to send my Santee, awesome danish candy?

    Perhaps Amazon sells the awesome danish candy?

    Well shit. Guess I have no excuse then :P

    But I would like to point out that only one of those types of candy are awesome. And that's the Super Piratos. The rest is terrible :shock:

    Whoo Secret Santa time again! I guess this is my...Fourth time? I think. The last few years were all awesome and I don't expect this year to be any different.

    Also, books are awesome.

    A bit delayed, but I'm sad you're moving is a complication. I was so impressed with your gift to me last year I saved the shipping label with your address and was going to send you a super-secret-Santa gift as thanks.

    ...
    Don't think you're out of the woods yet as far as receiving my holiday cheer. Oh no, no, no ...
    :D

    Hey, it was appreciated! Though my Yankee tastes just couldn't process Super Piratos.

    Also, in again!

    Once again, it sneaks up on me, but once again, I am in. The Secret Santa Whiskey tin floweth over! I can't wait to get to the stalking and gifting.

    And Haribo Piratos? Holy hell, those are... Foul. I get a couple of bags every year so my students can try them, just so they can say that they have.

    Also, if I've santafied your avatar in the past, it's most likely here if you want it.
    Course, most of those are the older smaller avatars. As for me, I don't think I'll be strapping on my Santa hat until November. It just doesn't feel right doing myself up Santa style on October 3rd.

    Ha. I was going to say oh sweet, you even gave him a santa sack. But then I realized that Croco is just a damn thief and already had that bag.

    Well, yeah, but this time he's giving people presents instead of stealing them.
    It's a subtle difference, but it's there.

    Okay, fine, I didn't touch the sack.

    After reading stories about personalized wrapping and whatnot I'm going to try and be a lot more personal with my gift this year, with the help of my crafty gf. Last year I just sent a box with all the stuff in it if i remember correctly. He liked it all the same (I hope) but still.. I'm ready to see who I'm stalking!

    This is always a good time of the year. I remember the first time I participated I got CoJoe the Lawyer (dude with the Lionel Hutz avatar). I sent all of his gifts as a settlement for his suit against false advertising in The Neverending Story. Sadly, I don't think it ever got posted to the forums. Needless to say, I'm down to participate for another year.

    Nervous is right. I sent my package a month and a half ago, and he hasn't even logged into PA since the 1st of December. 2 proxy messages have fallen on deaf ears :( I hope he's OK. He doesn't seem like a really active member, but it just feels strange.

    edit: Hmm he's been on Steam as of 5 days ago, so he's gotta have received both messages.

    Hello and welcome from your santee!! I apologize for taking my sweet-ass time!! I love your gift, and as a fellow artist I understand the long hours required by the craft. Really, I'm sorry for not at least letting you know I got your package. I've been busy as shit but that's no excuse!

    Holy shit! A Bitter Luigi triptych! This is the best damn secret santa of any kind I have ever received (sorry secret santa from a few years ago, your pound of fudge and goodies was excellent but this is better). I can't believe you'd put so much work into a gift for a total stranger like me (who was a total dope about being grateful).

    Thank you so much and I hope you can forgive me!

    Critical Failures has theirs up, but due to the nature of that forum, they've tended to start early and run late.

    Can't send your present until you roll a natural 20, dude. You know the rules.

    The SE++ one should be up in less than a month, I believe. The reason this is up so early is so people didn't miss the deadline because "the thread took too long and we forgot".

    Don't worry, you're safe. The red means that Flit is a deadbeat Santa, not you.

    Edit: Though it's awful that someone would get a rad handmade gift and not send out a gift of their own!

    I like that it's up early, because now with the bookmark system, I'm never actually looking at G&T proper, just my bookmarked list. I probably would have missed this if I hadn't seen Hypatia's tweet.

    I need my santee so I can get started with my annual painting!
    I'm no LPM, but each year I actually do have fun being able to paint up something for my santee. It's rather enjoyable, but for some reason I just can't make the time for myself to do it the rest of the year (or maybe I don't have the proper inspiration for what to paint?).

    Also, I need to go back through all the previous gift walls. Those are always fun to look back at and read each person's reactions and see those glorious handcrafted whatsits.

    Im considering doing this. I haven't participated since 2008 (my first and only SS) partly because my santee never sent anything himself and I felt whoever got me didn't do much, if any, stalking of me (the book was totally awesome though and I love receiving books of any kind... outside of self-help books. An ex actually gave me that one year and nothing else - while we were still together).

    The more major reason is because I have been financially strapped most years and barely missed the signups last year.

    I really enjoyed sending out the gifts that year (I'm a total gifter-a-holic), but my finances made me wary of getting someone overseas and then no being able to send anything. I'm glad we have awhile for signups so I can figure things out in that time. I would SO love to do this.
