Secret Santa 2017 [insert festive bells here]


Recommended Posts

Ho ho ho!

 

The festive Coldplaying tradition is a little late this year, I apologise. One of my edgy elves misplaced my calendar and I only just found it.

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 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.

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 5th!

 

* 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 don't know if I'll join this time. Last year my package arrived but I didn't receive anything and I don't know if the postal service lost it or if my secret Santa didn't send it :confused:

Ho ho ho! The elves are trying to find out what happened there. We'd love if you joined again!

The way I view it it’s more about the giving than the receiving. After all, it’s supposed to be *only* a Xmas card. Some decide to go further and send more goodies to delight their match. I’d love it too if you sign up and if I’m your match, I promise to track your mail all the way to you!

Speaking of things going wrong, I never found out whether my match last year received my package or not, despite asking...I think that's a bit sad too, it would be cool if people at least responded. Especially since it was in an area where the postal service might not be very reliable and you just never know what happened...

Im in! Agree with Moniru that the giving is the great part! I didn't get mine 2 years ago, but last year got a gift I treasure and look at every day! Thanks to @YeahWeDoYeahWeDo!

It's not about the quantity. I'd be happy just to get a hand-made card a candy or anything, I mean it. Plus, I don't rely on my postal service and my biggest fear is the package might get lost.

 

With that being said, I'll join!

Just a suggestion if you don't trust your postal service like me, register it so you can track it

One week left to sign up! Thanks to everyone who has joined yet, make sure to check if you are in the list in the first post: if you're not, you either haven't PMed me your details yet, or I've asked for a clarification.

 

Enjoy your Sunday!
