It is just a hash tag that all the cool kids are using these days. Here's a link:

I received a gift from Token385 with a card enclosed stated there were a few gifts from home. (In a strange twist, we are both from the same hometown!) Stranger yet, they arrived while I was in Wisconsin.
Included was: A Titleist logo waffle hat, and golf towel from Lawsonia Golf Course
a half dozen Titliest DT TruSoft logo golf balls in a picture package
two Wisconsin drink glasses (with all the important local sites.)
And two boxes of Hughes chocolates. (I'm going to need to hide these, probably from myself, or they'll be gone in one sitting.

Thank you very much, I look forward to losing some of the golf balls.

You are so welcome. Not to mention the many questions floating about in my head. Someday we will have to talk and exchange hometown stories.

Join! I am a lurker since I don't get to travel nearly as often as I would like but I signed up for the first time last year. It is great fun!

You're correct MissChele, Secret Santa is lots of fun!

Santa brought me more gifts today, exactly what I was hoping for! Books on "Antarctica - An Intimate Portrait of a Mysterious Continent" and "Katie Gale - A Coast Salish Woman's Life on Oyster Bay" and a DVD of "Antarctica - A Year On Ice." Plus an Amazon fireTVstick. So now I can learn more about where I work (for a Native American Coast Salish tribe) and prepare for some upcoming travels while I recover from my recent surgery! Thank you Secret Santas!

My second gift arrived via my alternative address, and was brought to me today. It has been put under the tree awaiting tomorrow evening as the tradition is in Denmark.

Thank to my secret santa shipping from the UK. Pictures of the content to follow when I open it.

Remember to PM Santa wharvey with what you received.

Merry Christmas form the North Pole workshop. The elves and I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family. And to our friends in Australia and Asia, we'll see you soon. As of this writing, it's Christmas Eve morning in that part of the world. I'm half way done preparing the sled for Santa. You can follow his travels here... https://www.noradsanta.org/

The Elves and HE53.

I just received part 2 of my gift from Rob. The items are beautifully wrapped and seem to be from Maine! The items are now under the tree. I will post photos of the items when they are unwrapped.
