Okay Folks, It's that time of year again! Just look in your local stores and you'll know what I'm talking about! Not even Halloween and already there are Christmas decorations in the stores!

This can mean only one thing ... The Holiday Gift Exchange/Secret Santa!!!  :santahat;
Please join in!

(What follows are the tried and tested rules and regs.  Please read them carefully before committing yourself to the fun of gift buying and gift receiving.)

Attention: Members with less than 50 posts must be approved before you are allowed to participate.

Here are the details:

--- This is a "Secret Santa" type of exchange.  I will randomly draw names to assign people. You will not know who is sending you a gift. You will only know who you are sending to (you can identify yourself in the package.)

--- Gift(s) value should be around US$10.00-$20.00, but no less than $10.00.  Forgive me if I don't mention any other currency because the way things change, I'm bound to get it wrong!

As far as what the gift should be, that's up to you.   You may want to research your person's posts to try to get an idea of what they may like. Use this thread to list your likes and dislikes, allergies, etc. to give ideas as to what your Secret Santa might send you.

--- You must sign up by PM'ing your info to me (Cebushan) NO LATER THAN October 20th. To be included on the Holiday Exchange list you must send me your snail mail address and phone number (optional).

--- Names will be drawn and announced (by PM) on November 2nd.

--- Gifts must be mailed out NO LATER THAN November 23rd, and sooner if you are sending overseas.

If you want to participate, please PM Cebushan your info.  We will have copies of all the mailing addresses, and of course whoever is sending you a gift will have your address, but it will not be posted publicly.  I will not send out phone numbers, those are for office use only.

Please use this format in the PM:

   Screen name
   Real name (first and last)
   Complete mailing address
   Phone number (Optional)
   If you are willing to sending a gift overseas (it may cost a little extra for shipping)
   Outside of the US must have a phone number.

I will post a final list of who is participating as I receive the information.

If you sign up for the exchange and fail to send a gift you will be banned from IHD for 90 days.   

If you have any questions, please post in this thread or PM Cebushan.

Those who participated last year had a most marvellous time! (It is a lot of fun to see what fun things you get!)

Ready, Set, GET SHOPPING!!   :christmastree;   :rudolph;

 :usaflag;   :canadaflag;   :ausflag;   :ukflag; 

So far participation looks like this:

I checked last year's posts and sent messages to several people that took part last year. We'll see what they have to say.
