I just had mine sent....My exchangee is a rather good acquaintance of female professor on this site.

That's all I say for now, and I think he, and maybe her, will have fun with their gift. Woot!!!

Sent my package yesterday. Happy holidays to all you Tacoans, whether I am your secret santa or not.

*Spoiler Alert*























The package is going to the left coast... Does that narrow it down too much?

My package was sent last week or so and went to CA to a chap who's initials relate to the number eight. :-)

Ugh. Been sick as a dog since Saturday and am only now feeling well enough to start making my gift. Proof of concept yesterday mostly worked, so hopefully the actual one will go smoothly and I'll get it out in time for the holidays....

BUMP!!!!

To be sent on Thursday, hopefully in time for delivery. Sadly, anonymity isn't possible when mailed things cross the border - it has to have a name and address. Maybe I'll be "Carrie Biner".

So here's a conundrum. When are the giftees supposed to open their gift, assuming that it arrives before December 25th? Especially those who aren't christians, or have other traditions? Bearing in mind that many of us have ADHD, or something not very different, how are we supposed to wait (patiently, or at all) for what could be a week or more? Would it be a victimless crime to open early? Is santa watching, and keeping notes for next year?

Perhaps the morals & ethics committee could chip in regarding this.

hey there say, mighy hiker, most folks go by that inner 'gut feeling' or that little nudge that 'it is time'...
so:
some have opened early, and some have not...

depending on a variety of things, not just 'not having the patience' or
'haveing too strong a curiosity'... :))

i usually open 'special stuff like this' on christmas eve,
as it is a bit like family 'sit and chat' time, though i have no
family around to do that with... *however, i seem to speak well to the ol' pupdog, cats and rat and bird, so i reckon i will share and chat about my gift, with them... and then, share on the taco, soon as i am up to dealing with the ol' computer, :)


so you'll know... :)
and you won't get 'banished' ;) if you open too early, :)

I think I'm qualified to sit on one side of this committee. My vote is don't 'tell' anybody you opened it until at least Christmas Eve.

Obviously I am standing firmly in the 'open it when it arrives' camp. MH you had mentioned that you celebrate the solstice. I am not familiar with the tradition but wouldn't that allow you to open on the 21st?
