The Official Atari Age Secret Santa 2019 thread

Recommended Posts

I waited until Christmas Eve if I remember correctly. That probably won’t change unless I need a pick me up or I just can’t stand it anymore! :)

I dug into the candy early on, but saved the wrapped gifts for actual Christmas. I think many might be doing the same, at least as long as the gifts are individually wrapped.

I tried to do that as well. I was 100% successful in eating the candy as soon as the package arrived and I think I opened my gifts about a week before Christmas.

Last year, I was urged by my Secret Santa to go ahead and open my gifts, so I gave in and opened them early. I may wait until at least Christmas Eve this year.

So with the return address on the shipping box, I bet some folks will figure out who is who. Guess it doesnt matter all that much. 

 

And how dare some of you open presents before XMAS!  ;)

Life is busy, doubly so around Xmas. If you have free time to indulge yourself and have some fun, I say make the most of it - that's just me, not endorsing it for anyone else :)

I'm more in the boat of "just go for it!". More time to enjoy the new things!

 

Also, how can you resist the urge to not press the beautiful, shiny button!? The jolly, candy-like button!?

Oops, I just ate all the candy I had planned for my SS gift. 😊 Well, off to buy more candy it is.

NEVER had that happen before.... 😂

Everything for my Secret Santa is wrapped. I just need some candy and a box from work to put it all into and I can think about sending it on its way. :)

 

So excited!

Look what I found today in my office!

MANY, MANY thanks to my (not so secret but surely stealthy and very fast!) Santa!!

 

Now I gotta wait exactly 1 month to open it... :P

Yeah, in particular if it is a package from Amazon delivered by drunk reindeers.

 

By the way, I bought different candy intended for my Secret Santa four (4) times and ate the first three ones.

My gift apparently is stuck in customs since 5 days ago. We'll see whichever ransom it takes to get it from there.

Well, look at the bright side: at least you are not tempted to open it too early! 😉

Whenever I hear "Look at the bright side," whether it's the Christmas Season or not, this gag always comes to mind...

 

 

... also happens to be from one of the best Christmas specials ever made, IMHO.

 

All my items have been gathered (despite a minor setback from an eBay purchase that did not accurately match the description -had to get a little crafty to solve that). Now it's time to wrap things up, as they say.

All of my presents have been completed by stuffy and his elf minions. It’s time to get the sleigh packed up and ready to go.

Me and the elves are now rocking out to our favorite Christmas song:
