Came home to a wonderful box of winter accessories (gloves, hat, neck warmer, jacket) and a very cool boardgame - Pandemic - that I've played before and enjoyed a lot. Many thanks to my anonymous Santa!

I received a nice package today from an anonymous santa. Was a framed 3d paper picture of 42nd street with marquees from various broadway shows and the frame has flashing lights similar to a broadway marquee. I have a couple signed framed playbills on my one wall and this will go great on the wall with them.

MICP3208 sent me a package a couple weeks ago with some wrapped gifts that I was going to wait to open but decided not to put up a tree this year with so much going on and since this is the last night I have nothing going on until Christmas opened my wrapped gifts. There were a few items with Delta logo on them that I didn't even know they made (Coffee cup, baseball cap and a really nice pair of slipper style socks), an amazon gift card book mark, a cute cat calendar and a toy for my kitty's that they love.

Talking Santa dropped some nice stuff

So, a couple weeks ago I came home and was informed that a parcel was deposited at a nearby Deutsche Post outlet. Went there a few days later and picked it up.

The tape on it, clearly indicating that some government agency had tempered with it, made me quite suspicious.As you can see it obviously was the TSA so it could be anything, most likely a gun😎.


Upon arrival at home I of course opened it and was surprised to find the most toxic 🙈content in a small package. I was astounded to see that the TSA, even so obviously having nothing to do with this, having let this one through, a combination of nutrients that could easily instigate an enjoyable and durable sugar highÖ
See the documentation for evidence here:



For health and security reasons the content had to be destroyed immediately.
That task was not easily completed and thus, as promised by the accompanying letter, in the meantime another parcel arrived.



Iím looking forward to open it sometime in the future with a nice meal.
So, this was the first Secret Santa 🎅 to from whom I received lovely gifts 🎁 this year.
Thank you Andrť!

I can confirm now, that as of today the task of destroying this dangerous amount of sugary nutrients has reached completion of exactly 97,38%. Only a few pop tarts are left.

Hope you enjoy everything and the tiles are a multi pack so you get to share with your wife!

Also, I would like to point out this Secret Santa triangle: Mdbe was Onetess SS gifter and Ontess happened to be my gifter and now me to yours Mdbe!
I did gift Onetess last year and the gifts she gave me this year are still nicely wrapped by my tree waiting to be opened.

Talking And another foodie package came

After a couple of days yet another package arrived at my door.
I had just finished eating the incredibly tasty Cheddar. Note to self: organize more of that stuff, quickly!

This time it was a gourmet surprise.






The Duck Rilette was a real surprise. It tasted exactly what one might expect of actually lovely homemade food!
And the Chips were a real surprise too, as I love chips / crackers and have been able to sample quite a few special ones.
But these deserve special recognition as the most Ąflavor promise to fulfillment ratio worthy onesď! Just awsome.

Thank you so much!

Thank you Redhead for all this chocolate I'm not sure my doctor will be as happy, so I'll just eat it as fast as I can

Seriously, though, thank you very much.


Secret Santa gift from Redhead.

Thank you Santa @gsegall!

My gift included lots of survival/multi-purpose tools that brought much nerdy excitement to my inner doomsday prepper.

As a bonus, I've also spent the last hour annoying my husband with the strobe flashlight and whistle while he eats the candy that came in the package.

-raises hand-

I am so sorry to be asking, but I can't find the post with the right information for my question.

We're supposed to PM Wharvey with the list of items we've received/sent to our Secret Santas, yes? Or am I misremembering this from last year? Anyway, if so, is there a specific format to send this to Wharvey? I feel like I'm missing something that I just read...but I can't find it if I did.

Thank you in advance.

Yes, thatís still one of the rules. Iím not aware of any specific format, so I just send him a message with all the info he needs, i.e. sender, receiver, and detailed contents. I just try to keep it short because Iím sure he gets lots of messages.

Got a very cool green Kava shoulder sling and a Jane Goodall book for my daughter. FT is wonky today and keeps giving me errors. Will try to post pictures later

I love the color on the bag! No one will mistake it for their plain black bag
