Santa C has a busy season ahead. And he's asked a couple of green li'l elves to help him out.

Yup, folks! Secret Santa's back.


Simply, m'dear lovelies, the whole point of secret santa gift exchange is to send a poem, a story or a piece of art or any totally creative idea to a randomly paired YWSer! What better than this to usher in the holiday spirit, eh? (Besides being besieged by an Invasion.)

All you have to do is:

-Post below with the following info:
Code: Select all
[b]1.Favourite colours:[/b]
[b]2.Favourite activities:[/b]
[b]3.Randomosity is the best policy :[/b] Anything goes here

-Last date to post/submit your name is December 10th, 2011.

-You will receive the name you have to send the gift to by December 15th 2011. (You can pesterPM me or Mira if you haven't received it by then)

-If you can't send the gift on Christmas day, feel free to leave it with a tag 'Do not open until Christmas'.


-If you have any questions, post 'em here!

And no worries if you don't celebrate Christmas! I don't! It's just a time to have fun and bring a smile to those around you. ^___^


If you have any questions, feel free to PM me or Mira, who's agreed to help me out. Whee!

1.Favourite colours: Yellow, Silver, Deep purple and royal blue.

2.Favourite activities: Writing, Daydreaming, World-building, plotting ways to spill love to random people (not in a romantic way, of course), and scheming on how I'm going to change the lives of the kids in my country (Canada). I also like reading Jon Foreman's (not to be confused with George Foreman) blogs and different bios of William Tyndale, because they're my heroes-- oh yes. I also tend to obsess over Switchfoot music.

3.Randomosity is the best policy : I LOVE SURPISES. So surprise me! (and if you know them, my charries are quite obviously my life)

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest.
The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time.
Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus.
If I were to pluck on your heart strings would you strum on mine?

So you randomly send a random someone a random creative something? And... then what?
