That is exactly how we did it at a school I use to teach at!

I think Sapphellae wants to participate, and I know that at least some of us are willing to ship to Canada.

Lifesaver said it looks interesting. Does that mean you are in?

Grillingfool bumped it up, so does that mean you are in?

I will see if someone on staff would be willing to handle the names, addresses, etc.

Sounds like fun. Christmas is going to be pretty dull in my house this year. Count me in.

Dear, sweet Alix has volunteered to handle the addresses, names, etc. So by Wednesday, please PM Alix with your name and address. She will PM you and let you know who you will be sending to. Please use the subject "Secret Santa" when you PM her, so that she will know what it is in reference to.

Barbara
P.S. You still have time to add your name to our list, but hurry!
