Ho ho ho!

*blasts Christmas music*

It's that time of the year again! This is the 11th annual Coldplaying Secret Santa. You could say it's about to hit puberty.

Here's how it works:

* You have the option to choose between sending a card to your own continent or another continent. For example:

Europe to Europe
or
Europe to North America, South America, Africa, Asia or Australia

* If you would like to join this year please let us know asap. The deadline for signing up is Tuesday 5th November, 11:59 PM CET.

We need the following information:
- Your name and address; please display it as you would write it on an envelope. The only person who will receive this information is your Secret Santa.
- Your email address (we need to be able to get in touch with you in case you won't reply to Coldplaying PMs).
- Secret Santa match preference: say "my continent" or "other continent" or "no preference". Please do not ask for a specific continent or country (otherwise it gets seriously complicated for Santa and the elves).

You can send your details to the SantaClaus account (click here to send the PM).

You will receive your Secret Santa match by the 11th of November.
We only have 5 days between the submission deadline and when I send you your match, which is why I must insist on the submission deadline: please join before November 6th!

* A couple of important points:
- Send your card as soon as possible (preferably before December) so that it will arrive in time for Christmas! Use airmail if that option is available.
You can ask your local post office how long it will take for your card to arrive. In previous years some cards never arrived and some people received their card long after Christmas (January/February) so please try to send the card in time, especially if it has to travel across oceans and so on.

- When you receive your match's information, please confirm that you have all the info.

- Send a PM to the SantaClaus account after you send your card to your Secret Santa match.

- Suggestion: Take a picture of your card/package before you ship. That way, if there is any lost mail, you can at least share the picture and description of the items you had carefully and lovingly prepared for other Coldplaying members.

- Post a message in this thread after receiving your card (with a photo if possible so that everyone can see what your card looks like) - or at least send a PM to Santa to confirm that you have received it.

The elves and myself would like to remind you all that you have just over two days left to sign up for this year's Secret Santa!

(@Coldplayernidia @Tom Cohen @jeremyy just mentioning you here since you expressed interest but I haven't received your PMs yet. If you no longer wish to join then that's perfectly fine & just ignore this :) )

Ho ho hoooo

Thanks to everyone who has signed up already. Today is the last day to do so!
As a little extra this year, one lucky participant will also receive an Everyday Life CD from an extra Secret Santa nicknamed 'Coldplaying'...

It's me, Santa! Live from the Grotto (I've got an internet connection there these days, technology catches up with us all)
