Survive France Secret Santa 2014


(Suzanne Fitzgerald) #1


To SFN Members Old & New in 2014


The last couple of years has seen Survive France Secret Santa gifts flying all over the world from the USA to New Zealand, Dubai, the UK and France of course.


What is Secret Santa?


The basic concept of the Secret Santa game is simple. It is open to ALL SFN Members and you simply have to message me to say you wish to join in.


Once I have all the names (by the deadline of 30th Nov) I will then put all the names into a Christmas stocking and my lovely 3 girls will have the fun of doing the drawing of names. I will then message you to give you the name and address of your lucky recipient.


Remeber it's secret so you should not tell the recipient member who you have been tasked to gift.


When the Secret Santa wraps their gift, he/she just labels it with the recipients name but doesn't indicate whom the present is from. (Remember, most of the fun is in the secrecy.)


Sounds fun - so how do I join in?


Please send me a friend request to confirm you wish to join in the fun and then once I've accepted your friend request please message me your name and address. It's important you message me after I've accepted your friend request otherwise when I accept I will lose your details (lesson learnt from previous years)


Gifts should be a maximum value of 7.50 euro and don't forget you will have to pay the postage so best to aim for something fairly lightweight as your gift could be going to any member anywhere in the world.


I will need all the names by 30th November and I will do the draw on 1st December and message you on that day with your recipients details. Please ensure you post your gifts by 13th December for Europe, those SFN members in more far away places from France I'm afraid your gift may not arrive but Christmas but be assured it should arrive even if not until April...(oops).


Don't forget its SECRET SANTA so don't reveal who you have been given as your recipient...


Have Fun!

Thanks Secret Santa! You'll be pleased to know your present arrived safely on the other side of the world. I just got back from a summer holiday and there it was! Thank you very much. I hope you all had an enjoyable festive season. After a miserable spring and early summer here (in New Zealand)- weather-wise - it's now just glorious. Wonderful!

Happy to see that the present I sent out arrived and hope that they liked it. I must have been on the naughty list and Santa passed me by. Maybe next year! :(
