    It's that time of year again.

    Some of you may remember this on Dubtopia and JD.net as The 12 Days of Christmas. But over the last few years we have been calling it Secret Santa.

    Here's how it works:
    • Simply post below if you wish to participate.
    • We will randomize the list of participants and you will be PM'ed with who your secret Santa is.
    • From the time you are PM'ed until Christmas eve (December 24th) you can deliver your gift to me.
    • Remember! Your gift will be PM'ed to only me NOT the person you are gifting for.
    • I will pass out what gifts I have received on Christmas day.
    • Minimum of one gift but you are free to give as much as you would like.
    • People who ask to participate and do not give a gift will not be prohibited from joining next year.
    It doesn't have to be anything special and definitely not paid for. Typically you can just Google an image of something that would be relevant to an interest of the person you're gifting for. You can make an avatar, a signature, something for their club, or even buy them something on Amazon if you're feeling extra generous (a few gave gift cards last year).

    Reply if you want to participate! Entries end 5 days from today!

    @Staff lets set a good example for the rest of the members by joining. I'll tag more members closer to the end date.

    Giving them to your assigned participant defeats the purpose of the word "Secret" in Secret Santa. Have you not done this in real life before where you receive a gift from an anonymous person or give someone a gift anonymously?

    You never give the gift directly, one person collects the gifts and then passes them out. Although there can be some variations of the Secret Santa "game" / "event" based on local traditions rather than a global "standard" (if there is such a thing), the basic concept remains the same. One person collects the gifts, then passes out the gifts based on the agreed set of guidelines. The whole idea is that the gifts come from "Santa," even though the participants were the ones that brought the gifts for someone else that participated.

    Well now you know why Spor collects the gifts and passes them out.
    And knowing is half the battle.
