It's that time of year, time to get the Secret Santa rolling again. Here's how it works:

Let me know in this thread if you are interested in participating. You must have achieved Veteran status or higher to be part of this. The cutoff date to get your name in will be November 25th (the day after Thanksgiving), no exceptions will be made to this. You will then be assigned, at random, another person from the list to play Santa for. You will send your recipient a total of six cigars. This will include 5 good quality sticks, which you think your recipient will enjoy. One of these five sticks should be designated as a New Years Eve smoke, typically people have done this with the highest end or most rare stick they send, though this is not required. The sixth cigar you send is the "Lump of Coal" cigar, and should be a smoke that would be worthy of giving to a cigar mooch or annoying relative.

The cigars should be sent in time to arrive before Christmas. Please take into account that mail is typically a little slower at that time of year. Also, please remember this is a SECRET Santa, you aren't supposed to let your recipient know you are their Santa. (Until the gift arrives, anyway.)

To get a better idea what to send to your recipient, take a look at any posted wishlists, as well as past reviews.

If you have any questions, you can post them here or PM me.

I would definitely like to participate again. The only piece of constructive criticism I have is that it would be nice if there were fewer "reciprocal Santas" this year (i.e. last year I got Barry, and Barry got me). Getting your Santa's package before you've had a chance to send yours to the same person is a little awkward. :biggrin:

Please count me in and thanks for doing this again Rebecca.
I am not concerned about what you think as I can tell you don't do it often.

I used to be a people person, but then people ruined that for me.

"I feel a whole lot more like I do right now, than I did a while ago"


Most wonderful time of the year.

Definitely participating.

I'll do what I will and I'll drink what I please
I'll smoke what I like 'till I cough and I wheeze
I'll drink and I'll whore and every pleasure realize
For this time tomorrow I may die


I sat this one out last year as I was quite busy, even though I did manage to be someone's Secret Santa anyway~!  :biggrin:

I'll join in this year as December is a shyte month for selling cigars~! :-(
