Sad but there's sometimes a non-giving Santa.
I'm concerned that one, which was sent via email, may have ended up in a spam folder, and the recipient thinks their Santa has neglected them.

J.F. from the University of Reading
sent an incredible package.

1) Jamie's Comfort Food Cookbook, My first from Jamie and I'm ready to cook!
2) What if? A book that others are very excited about, I was going to get one for myself, but now I have one. I'm anxious to see what its about.
3) Skross Swiss Travel Power Adapter, totally kick ..., probably would work on the moon!
4) Chromecast. I've been resisting the urge, but it will fit perfectly with my addiction to "binge watching" tv from across the pond.

Thank you so much for the gifts.

Tone

I'm still waiting to hear if a package sent last week overseas arrived. The postal service tracking only notes: "International shipment has arrived in a foreign country."

I hope it's in the RIGHT foreign country!

Just a suggestion that it might be worthwhile to check the mailbox/porch/etc. this evening and tomorrow as packages are dropped off well after 5PM this time of year.

Wow, I received another package from SS revaharj!

A beautiful scarf, a Petco gift card for Marino and a travel mirror with quilted case and gift card from Sephora, plus a handwritten card/note. Thank you, revaharj - these are all much appreciated!

Wow, got back to Canada today after a harrowing trip through EWR and $1600 in compensation from United to find multiple packages from my secrety santa.

An awesome bar mat from my fav brewery in the UK, Blacksheep. A great Book on beer which I have already started reading. There was also a gift card to a great place here in town that I didnt even know about that was somehow hand delivered with a card..... I am clearly a lucky guy this holiday season.

Thanks SINCURE for the great gifts, all the best to you and your family this holiday season.

You are very welcome. There should also be a box from Canada post with some stuff in it. I may (or may not have) put who it was from. Can't remember

Its Christmas eve!

I'm still waiting to receive one of my SS pressies and I won't have it until after Christmas now. Gives me something to look forward to!

Ho ho ho! I received a box of delicious goodies from Southern New Jersey/ Pennsylvania from my Secret Santa #2, Erik. Picture to follow (should I be able to pry these treats from the hands of my family.) Thank you so much!

I've seen other people with these and always thought they looked ridiculous but then my phone has been dying every time I've traveled recently (too much time in old United interiors!) so this is very much appreciated.

-Fancy earplugs
Perfect for all the concerts I go to, hope I don't lose them when the show gets wild

-Giant magnetic bottle opener
As soon as I get a fridge in my new place it's going right in the middle. The piece de resistance!

Awesome gifts, thanks so much.
Hey no problem! I'm glad you enjoyed the gifts... was hoping you'd like at least one of them . I'm also relieved that you got them since the tracking didn't update at all. I thought it was at the post office this whole time! Good to see that you got them. Have a nice holiday!

I could have used this to motivate the Elves for our last minute crush. But alas, our work is over now. We loaded everything in the old mans sled just a few hours ago. Santa sure is a slave driver.

At 1230 (1530 GMT), the Elves are going to join in the fun here >>> http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/commu...annuka-do.html

We'll return to the workshop on Friday afternoon. Sadly, Santa or I may be contacting a few of you.

Mine came fast and furious yesterday! Thanks so much for the box of goodies. Can't take a pic as the coffee and jamberries go into my own stocking! The packing cubes will also come in so handy!
