Posting photos:
Alternatively: Upload your image to somewhere on the internet (a list can be found in the wiki here, and I also can recommend imgur). Once the image is uploaded, right click on the image (control-click or click with two fingers for those of you with macs), click on "copy image URL". Then in your post in this thread, paste the image URL that you previously copied between two image tags, so the result looks like:
[img]your URL here[/img]

Was greeted by your package when I arrived home from our holiday trip. Thanks for being such a great Secret Santa. I was going to save it for Christmas Day but my wife convinced me that I should open it as it might have perishables in it - she is a choc-a-holic and I think she must have sensed that there were truffles inside!

In addition to the amazing truffles, there were water bottles and a day pack that will be very handy on our many trips.

THANKS rxfleming!

Received gifts from two more of my Secret Santas.

One box contained two beautifully wrapped presents and a card that said do not open unitl after I open the presents. I am holding out on opening them till Christmaas so will post more information then. I do not know who the Secret Santa is but I do want them to know the package arrived.

The second Secret Santa is also anonymous. I received a card letting me know that two packages would be arriving, The first package arrived and contained an awesome deluxe scratch off map that will help me track where I have been and inspire me to make future trips. My description does not do it justice. I have been thinking about marking all of the places i have been but have not gotten around to it. This map will make it easu and fun. I will post more when I receive the second package.

A very big thank you to both Secret Santas.

Hopefully you also received a little notice card saying a little something had arrived for you!

Got a gift from Santa in Hiroshima. It was on my desk coming back from a meeting. (shipping to the office this year as the travel schedule is pretty hectic) If I have space, it will be under the Christmas tree when I go back to Denmark, otherwise I might "cheat" and open it early at home. (the box indicates bottles, which I am looking forward to)
Thank you Santa.

My own purchases are completed and ready to ship tomorrow.

Gang, I have had a few people want to get into Secret Santa after the deadline passed. If I get enough people, I will do one more assignment round this weekend.

If you want to join or set an extra assignment, please let me know ASAP!

Santa,

I hope the Elves didn't keep you awake last night. They (we) were celebrating the wonderful new of our boss. On behalf of everyone downstairs in the workshop, Mazel Tov on your marriage.

You have a ways to catch up with Mrs. HeadElf and I. We just crossed 37 years.
