As I mentioned above, I received my package today! 

Now I really can't wait for Christmas (but I will). 

Thank you James (Reno McCoy)!

I was thinking this exact same thing today when I got my gift in the mail. That'd be quite something.

It was I, SantaFein, I mean SpideyFein. Enjoy your gifts and have a Blessed Christmas!!!! 

 

I got mine too, but am not sure who it's from. Can't wait to get my paws on it!

Hope he was a good boy, and waited for Christmas .

Mine either, despite the fact that USPS says it was delivered about 10 days ago. 

Kinda wish it was it was a requirement of signing up for this was that you agreed to post a photo of your gift when it arrived... both so that your SS knew it got there safe and sound, and so those running things could easily keep track of who was still without gifts.

Mail can be crazy this time of year, so hopefully people who haven't received something yet... will hear from their SS that it's on it's way and you'll see it very soon!

Such a fun time of the year.  :smile:

 

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONNER and BLITZEN!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes -- how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!

I was worried too, so I pm'd my recipient.

Arrived safe & sound!

The package from my secret Santa finally arrived. Right in the nick of time before Christmas. But... am I on the naughty list? hm

Do I have time to write a nice letter to Santa? :whistle:

Update: with approval from secret Santa, I opened and three packages appears to have survived the journey.
