We should probably get started soon. Should we just pair people off (if we have an even number of participants) or do it as a secret thing? If we want to do it as a Secret Santa type thing, maybe one of the mods or admins who is not participating would be willing to draw names and let us know who we send to. If we do it that way we will have to all trust our addresses to that person. If we just pair off, we will just exchange addresses with the person we are exchanging with. If we pair off, I would be willing to put the names in a box and pair them off. The only pair that wouldn't work (except financially, lol) would be James and me! So I could put everyone's names except ours in, pull one out for him, then one for me, and then I could do the rest. If we do it this way, I will post the pairs on here.

So, everyone who wants to participate, chime in here (or PM me) and let us know how you would prefer to do this, secret or pairs. I'm really looking forward to this!

Barbara

I vote for Secret Santa but will do whatever the group decides.

I do think that we should start soon though.

Pairing or secret santa doesn't matter to me, just let me know who and where.

I think new or like new would work out. We should limit the gifts to $20 or less (or $10 or less depending on the consensus of the participants).

Let's say Wednesday the 3rd for drawing names. That way there is time for more people to join in if they want, and that should give us time to do this before Christmas. If someone who doesn't celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah would like to participate, of course you are welcome to join in! Gifts are gifts!

I vote for secret santa because it would be fun playing 20 questions or such game afteward trying to figure out who your secret santa was!

I love doing Secret Santa! At the last school I worked at we did two things. We had Secret Pals, which took place throughout the year, and we had Secret Santa, which was at Christmas. Some people (myself included) did both. For our Secret Santa we gave something each day of the last week of school. The first thing was something really small, and they got bigger each day, ending with a $10 to $20 gift. It was a lot of fun!
