I was just wondering with this year being very close with the holidays. Like only 3 weeks of christmas shopping after thanksgiving. Will SS start a little earlier?

I think that is an excellent idea... it's going to be a wild and wooly short shopping season - so if we know what our person that we are buying for wants in advance we can grab things before it gets too hectic. :gdiagree:

Yes, that SS and I would fully support starting a bit earlier due to the shortened holiday shopping season. Especially since the mail by date is usually around Dec. 3 or so.

Just sign up when the official thread is started. You can go to the archives, read the thread from past years and get a general idea of how things go. It's a lot of fun.

Everyone,

 

I've started to see Secret Santa questions pop up.  I've handled it/the Secret Summer Shopper the last couple times but while I want to participate, I don't have the time to run it this year.  I've had to take on extra work and that plus regular work, my volunteer activities, and general life, I cannot take this on this year.

 

I tried to get someone to take over SSS this year because things were starting to fill up for me then but no one was able to and I went ahead and squeezed it in.  If someone cannot take over Secret Santa, Ornament Exchange, and Christmas Card Exchange this year, it's not going to happen as I cannot put anything else on my plate.

 

It hurts me to say this because I enjoy it but I really just need to be/only have time for being a participant this year.  If someone wants to take over, please declare yourself as the new North Pole Head Elf and let the fun begin!  I'll be happy to answer questions and help out where I can but I cannot, cannot, cannot be responsible this year. 

 

My deepest apologies.

Natalie

Thank you Pogiporkchop! I'm really looking forward to it.  I'd be happy to help in any way I can, but I wouldn't know how to run it myself.

Would it be safe to assume I'm hosting this year? I've got the time :)
