    I am willing to help, maybe be an elf or co Santa?

    Though, I am possibly closer to the North Pole than many of you, I am not in close proximity to anyone. Therefore, if there is to be wine and drawing from a hat, it would have to be via Skype or such.

    Though, if chief Santa & elf return that is great and I am happy to let them do as they have done:cool:.
    Also if anyone has already thought about doing so, with a friend or wants an assistant within the UK, again, I am fine with that.

    Sorry, I'm dreading Christmas this year with all that has happened in my life, don't think I'm the one to inject the Christmas Spirit into the group

    I wonder if someone should contact our previous Santa and Chief Elf just to confirm whether or not they want to do it. If not we can move things on properly. Anyone in contact with them?

    Not sure who the Chief Elf was last year...?

    I contacted @huckybuck today, she confirmed she IS coming back, BUT, doesn’t feel she could do the secret Santa as she has broken her own rules of not being around enough.


    So folks the position is open! :D I am happy to to be second elf and crack the whip and monitor any naughtiness, which was managed by @Citruspips last year.

    Who wants to be the big boss? :D

    Yay pleased to see we are seeing if this is possible this year, even my husband was asking if the secret Santa had started yet :D

    I would love to volunteer but sadly I know what my life is like and the moment work kicks off I disappear and hardly have any time. And unfortunately I know that is going to happen over the coming months due to what we are gearing up for.

    If Ted could actually use computers I know he would love to be Santa but sadly he really can't :(

    Oh... I’m not sure I’m chief elf material :oops:

    this is starting to sound like an episode of the apprentice!!

    I would love to take part again but since I’m not going out shopping anywhere near as much as I did I’m not sure my gifts would be up to the usual standard (normally I Christmas shop in all sorts of odd places). But if recipients ok with that (sorry went off on a tangent).

    watching this thread with interest

    I honestly think we can bend the rules for @huckybuck if she wants to take part as a participant! Not that I am Santa or an elf... But it's not like most won't know her cats and she can just promise to fill catchat with HB pics from now until we start the December advent countdown and we need to see all the pics of the HBs in costume!

    So thrilled to hear HB is coming back, and that we are doing Secret Santa again!! :Kiss:D I would be happy to help if needed.

    I also agree that HB should be allowed in with diplomatic immunity as she has organised this for so many years and brought such joy.

    Yayy!!

    I agree that @huckybuck and @Citruspips should join in if they would like, as they have organized before for us.

    But we only need two organizers I think. So I will bow out and leave things to @MilleD & @ewelsh .

    If everyone agrees I will step into @huckybuck very professional boots and be Santa this year only!


    I come with my own elf who will be announced later! IF you are all happy having me as Santa?

    I intend to make a few changes this year due to the current circumstances. :Smuggrin

    Whoopee!! We're up and running!:D:D:D

    Taking a little private bet as to Chief Elf but could Duracell be our Honorary Assistant Elf?:p

    I am happy with this. Are you open to bribes so I get some easy clues this year??? :D (your answer to this may change my original response about being happy :D:D:D).

    Bribes will not be tolerated, or you will loose brownie points :D




    This power is going to my head already :Happy

    Yay... yay...

    . I’ve started lists I’d ideas already (most of which might get crossed off when I discover the changes or who I’m buying for... but always good to be prepared)
