Secret Santa 2016 ~ A Sleigh Full of Gifts


Recommended Posts

Ho ho ho!

 

With only about 80 days until Christmas, it is time to get in the Holidays spirit again! This long Coldplaying tradition is a great opportunity to connect with fans all over the world!

 

Here's how it works this year:

 

* 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 Sunday 6th 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 10th of November.

Given our tight schedule, we only have 4 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.

- 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.

i've been here since this project first started but have never participated. i think this might be the year for me to start! :P

You know, since you weren't active around the time I came to this forum my brain always mistakenly thinks you are a newbie.

Then I see that you have more than 25K posts and a join date during the X&Y Era and I think, oops, NOPE ! :D

Count me in, Mr. Claus. Like @iranaway said, it was a great way to get acquainted!

I've never done something like this before, is it just a card or a package or something?

You have to send a card, and maybe a little something, but just if you can. There's no need to send a package because shipping costs could be too much. Something you can fit in a small envelope would be perfect, I think.

The pictures people posted last year of their cards showed more gifts, some not so tiny. They looked like more than I could do, so I made most of my gift. There is no pressure. Do what you can and want to - and most of all, have some fun with it!
