I have for once signed up, but wish to emphasize the non-sectarian, non-religious nature of my participation. It is purely a "secret Yuletide gift exchange", managed by a benevolent elf. Naturally whatever I send will be timed so as to arrive on midwinter's day, the start of the traditional seasonal festival of northern peoples, before it was corrupted by all the religious/commercial crap. It may be delivered by reindeer, and hang in a fir tree - all are politically correct. It will not be accompanied by a corpulent person, an inebriated ungulate, grating carols, fatuous homilies, or other nonsense. However, simple, plain good wishes will surely be part of the package.

And thanks to the elf, for organizing this for the fourth or more year in a row!

Send Anders a Santa sock puppet to distract opposing counsel.

But be careful…he sent back the Judge Mental and the Well Hung Jury’s Christmas Album Lois mailed and the 1000 Romneys dancing on the head of a pin I sent last year… :-)

No offense, but is MH this year's Fatty? :-)

Lots of us ignostic/atheist-oriented folks here from what I can tell, so imho no need to be so on the nose about your particular stance. Got a bone to pick, kindly start a new thread and not kill the vibe in this one.

Just my $0.02, and really, no offense intended. Happy you're joining in! :-)

(Fatty trolling the thread last year was a downer, IMO)

I have signed up, I am participating, I'm having a little fun at my own expense, and maybe taking a few digs at the way in which the midwinter spirit has been distorted by commercialism, en route.

No worries, MH. Kindly take it as a shot across the bow to stave off the negative vibes Fatty contributed last year, and my sincere apologies for nor not clueing in that you were playing nicely. :-)

Frankly I agree with you; it's just that the FattyGrinch kinda gave the thread a sour tone last year and it bugged me. That said I'm mostly a lurker, do take it as my overly-inflated $0.02.

Last year quite few people gave money to buy Strider a gift.
Some people sent a little, and some a lot. We collected quite a bit, and I believe we gave him a rope, one or two books, and a Dream Catcher.
The gift suggestions and money were sent to me, and then I ordered the stuff, and sent it to Strider.
I would like to do this again this year.
Please contact me off site if interested.

I was curious about the logistics, o illustrious elf! When you match givers and receivers, do you pair them, or is it some more complicated system? That is, do simply match A+B, C+D, and so on, with A giving to B and B giving to A? Or is it A gives to C, C gives to D, D gives to A, etc etc?

Keep it simple Brother Anders. I don't know what the system is; but my gift person, Tony Yeary, could not could not have been more coincidental. And Gals gifts were great.

Just going to have to go with the flow Bro.
