I hope so! It was so fun last year. I think someone needs to volunteer to organize it.

Not me, though.....(backing away slowly)

If none of the previous organizers want to do it this year, I'd be happy to coordinate. Just let me know.

I participated last year and I had a blast. It was sort of like a Secret Santa. We sent our real names and address to the coordinator.

The coordinator gave each of us one real name and address, along with the nc name so we could look at preferences, and we sent off a gift. We also had a value limit - maybe $20?

To prevent delivery issues, we used delivery confirmation last year IIRC.

The recipient then posted on a thread to let us know that she recieve her package.

I was actually just thinking of this yesterday but didn't get to post. Usually it's all prepared by the end of Oct so we can shop and mail. Kinda late, but heh?
I thought maybe no one mentioned it since the economy was so bad.

I have participated in each winter holiday swap, fun!
