Folks!!!

It's nearly that time of year again. Secret Santa time!

Let's start sign-ups early this year. Sign-up by Dec 15th to be included!

I'd be willing to coordinate if no one has a particular passion to do it, but if you're like, oohhh me me I want to assign numbers and play with a random number generator and send out pm's then by all means.

Okay, if you have never done this before, here's how DDN's Secret Santa works:

1) reply to this thread that you want to join
2) you will be assigned a person in the thread to "shop" for
3) Sometime before Christmas, you will make a post for them and post pictures of their "gifts"
4) You'll notice all the quote marks. That's because this is all for fun and no money is actually spent, so the sky's the limit. New car? Fancy holiday? Extravagant, completely unrealistic and over the top gift? YES. DO IT. Basically, look through your person's interests and post pictures and a description of the item and why you chose it for them. Sometimes it's a simple gift, a bottle of nail polish or some drawing pencils, or a silly gift - maybe an inside joke that they'll get - or something luxurious like a cruise because it's fun to daydream and make-believe.
5) Be on the look out for a post from your Secret Santa.

It's all for fun and there are no real finances or money involved. Just good feelings and silliness and warmth and love. So sign up! You will be assigned your person on Saturday the 16th to give time before the holidays set in to make your post. <3

I'm in too! It's such a fun Secret Santa to do cause it's so unique and low-stress. Folks can look up my Tumblr (same username) for inspiration since I don't post here much anymore.

Thanks so much for organizing this, Sumayah!! You're awesome. :)

Alright, alright, alright.

I mean. I know I haven’t been here in... well, years. But Christine made a compelling case on Facebook that we need to breathe some life back into our beloved DDN.

Can I still join the secret Santa? 😩😩😩

Yeah, I'm in. I'd like to see this place as active as it once was. Some one just sent me a message concerning a problem regarding a dress sale as though I never left being a mod, LOL

Jon Chaconne BTW, Chaconne, the sailboat from which I took my DDN name sank in 2008.

I would like to participate, but need to know if deadline for delivering the Secret Santa is prior to Dec 24th (I'm out of country with no telecommunications from Dec. 24 - Jan. 2).

I hope everyone is well and I'm super glad for this thread because it feels like a reunion.

Just coming by to say hello to everyone. I'm part of the Facebook group, and it's been great catching up on how everyone is doing (though I haven't linked all DDN names to real names yet). I probably won't be posting much over on FB because I want to keep my DDN identity separate from my real identity. I realize it's not overly difficult to figure out who I am, but I don't want to make it overly easy either. So I decided to come here to say hello to everyone, in the hopes that FB traffic will be directed this way and will see this message.
