JS SecretSanta

 What fun the SecretSanta game was!

Do you remember who YOUR SecretSanta was or who YOU sent a gift to?

My first SecretSanta was Wizardress, and I was SecretSanta to Xanadu. The next year Summerwind was mine and I was SecretSanta to Silvertag. Then JS crashed and at KCL we did it again. Blackbird (non-JS member) was my SecretSanta. Now, who was mine? Oh, dear... I'm getting old! lol

Those gals who organised the whole thing really had a job to do! I remember Ella doing it the one year and Amanda, as well as EvilFury during the KCL stint. Thank you all for all the work you did!

The down side of the organization of the game: some people signed up, got matched with other members, then never sent a gift or even commented on the whole thing.... they just dropped out without a word!

Some members set up special new journals just for SecretSanta. I have one called SecretSanta4JS. There were questionairs to fill out so that the Santa's could get to know their "person" better... making selection gifts easier. I usually sent some typical German Christmas things like a real Nutcracker, smoking elf, and/or CD with German Christmas music.

Anyone else with fond, or not so fond, memories of SecretSanta?
