I will apologize in advance for posting this in the same slot as OcAwareness month but if you want to get presents out on time drafting MUST be well before November. :shame:

WELCOME TO THE 5TH ANNUAL TON SECRET SANTA!



How it works:
You PM me with something or a short list of somethings you want for Christmas. Then I will sort through all the names of people who want in on this and I assign you with SOMEONE ELSE'S list to get for that someone. The Idea being you don't know WHO gets your list and they don't know WHO got THEIR list. It's all meant to be a fun surprise until Christmas. :)

Signup deadline: November 5th. I figure 2 weeks should be long enough. You guys get an extra few days to sign up. ;)

Attendance Records.

1st Annual Santa count: 10-12 ..... I never jotted it down so I can only guess.

2nd Annual Santa count 12!

3rd Annual Santa count 10.

4th Annual Santa count 17! Record Attendance!! :D

5th Annual Santa count 5. Not the best but still fun.


Here are the Rules:
[NEW] Please don't sign up for TON just for free stuff. You MUST have been a registered member of TON for at least 4 months OR you can have an established TON member or good standing Secret Santa member vouch for you. Please don't misunderstand, I love having new members in Secret Santa to show them how nice TON is, but we operate on an honor system. Please respect it. :) [NEW]

Vouchable list.

(more to be added)
This first one is not a rule but is Strongly recommended!
IF you can afford it, PLEASE send your parcel with Tracking!!
One year we had 2 parcels go missing because they had no tracking so please, do yourself and your giftie a favor. Don't let it get lost.
[+] Rulez. Please Read.
1: The deadline and name drawing is the 3rd of November.
All through November is when people should be chipping away at this. Also: PLEASE remember, the sooner you can ship your parcel, the better. The latest you can leave this is the last week of November. Nobody likes to be left out on Christmas day. :cry:

2: The purchase limit is 30 dollars. That doesn't mean you need to get someone a 30 dollar gift. It just means you can't go OVER 30 dollars. You still need some greens left over for the cost of shipping. ;)

Next: Please remember: This is meant to be a small gesture of Christmas Cheer! Please don't send a box full to the brim with Pirate booty and go over your limit! Conversely, don't go sending someone a postcard and a picture of your gift. "I got you a Maparam for Christmas! I'll take good care of it for you!" :lmao:
No, I don't think anyone here would do that but please keep that in mind. :)

Finally, if you're going to ask for or send Ocarinas, please remember: Things take time to ship to you BEFORE you can package them as a Secret Santa. Okay?
Alternatively, you can ask your prospective Ocarina purveyor to send them DIRECTLY to your gifties address instead. ;)


3: If you want in, please PM me with your list, your REAL name, your shipping address and PLEASE SPECIFY if you're willing to ship international or not. THIS ONE'S REAL IMPORTANT!! If I don't have ALL your information, I can't add you in the list.

Also: You must be willing to keep in contact with me because I act as a go-between for gifters and giftees.

4: If you'd rather say "Surprise me!" instead of giving a list, you certainly can but PLEASE say what you DON'T want. *IE* "I don't like black licorice" or "I am allergic to (insert food here)" Also, the allergy thing is REALLY important for some people so always be considerate. :) Also you may add your shirt size.... just in case. ;)


5: People will be assigned who to gift via THE HAT. All names go in my Russian Hat and are chosen at random and NO! You can't give a gift to yourself. :rofl:
So you know, I try and abide by my own rules in that I don't get to choose who I gift but in the event I do choose my own, it's only because I choose a particularly difficult giftie.
*IE* someone asking for a country specific gift.

6: ON your package, please mark "DO NOT OPEN TILL XMAS". IN your package however, you may say who it is from (TON Names will work best).

7: In your list, please say if you're a Guy or a Girl so that if you're a guy you don't end up getting girl themed stuff.

8: I'd encourage for your giftie you can add in something hand made if you like. *cards, friendship bracelets, etc.*

9: PLEASE! Don't be upset or Disappointed if you don't get exactly what you want. It's not the getting that matters, it's the GIVING! :love:

10: Finally, our Secret Santa operates on an honor system, so please respect our tight-knit community by following through on your gifting commitment. No Grinching please. :)

{NEW}
If a Grinch is found among our Ranks, they will be BANNED from entering next year!
If this is the case I will do everything I can to fix things for the unfortunate victim of grinching.

Grinch list: If your name is here that means you are NOT allowed to participate this year because you did not follow through on you commitment to gift. :(
You may participate next year so long as you learned your lesson.

(All 5 of us were very good for Santa last year) :rofl:


Please remember that despite all the seemingly stiff rules, this is meant for be an enjoyable event! :fly:

That's all! Now go Have fun!
