No longer the Secret Santa 2016 topic you want to watch...

Posted by Really Big Al, Sep 19, 2016.

Hello all.  I was the Secret Santa coordinator for the 2015 holiday season and I would like to know if anybody is interested in being the coordinator for the 2016 holiday season.  It's really just a few hours of your time in total, if you start out on the right foot with a mechanism to track who is paired to whom and of course it's lots of fun.  

Send me a private message if you are interested.  The 2016 Secret Santa should be determined by mid-October and people who wish to participate in the event should be signed up by early November.  Wine purchases and shipments would then take place during late November, into early December.

Perhaps we can return to the notion of keeping our 2016 Secret Santa's identity under wraps, hence the private message response if you are interested.  Suggestions on ways to improve the process are welcome too.  Lessons learned are collected each year and I think the biggest concern is with the delivery coordination.

I have a little bit of past experience at this Al. Leave it to the pro, I'll take it from here.

I'll take that as an offer to run Secret Santa 2016.  Thank you Santa and please add me to your 'good' list.  I heard from a little birdie that OT might be added to the 'naughty' list, but alas that is not verified yet.  Do what you can to sort that out before the holiday season is upon us please.

What's the plan for this year, Secret Santa?  Do you want to strive for delivery in mid-December this year, instead of prior to Thanksgiving as we did last year?

Who else want's to participate in the Secret Santa 2016 event?  This is something you can brag to your grandchildren about down the road...

Seriously I want to wait until Summer is over before we even begin to think about Christmas. But if you insist on starting this thing up now then by all means run with it and I'll just observe from a distance.

I can wait until Secret Santa has his pants on.  Just let us know the details you envision for the upcoming season so we can be prepared with our wine purchases and wish lists.

I will play when time gets much closer like late November or even December. Need one day to purchase, 3 days to ship across country and a few days to settle before drinking.

How does this work - order from snooth and have them mail it or order from whomever and send it? I'd be happy to participate.

Come on, guys, it's still waaay too early. Getting tired of the subject already, and I likely won't even be participating this year, either.  Harvests aren't even in yet.

Weather hot and humid here again today. Wet and overcast and typhoony for most of the month so far. so summer's making its last effort but this ain't no Indian Summer yet. Good thing they're not trying to make real wine in this country or 2016 would be a nasty vintage with all the rain...

I hope Santa has noticed the cooling weather patterns.
