Thanks for starting the fun! Most of the matches have been made. We are currently working out a few "techincal difficulties" (those reindeer can be trouble sometimes). Please let me know if you haven't recieved your match.

I am sure they will get it straightened out soon enough.

What allergies do you have?
Do you have a color preference?
Is there anything you really need this year?
Is there anything you really want this year?
Do you have any pets?

Please let me know. My sources tell me you've been very good this year.

What are your favorite colors?

What are your hobbies?

Do you have a favorite scent - mint, vanilla, patchouli, anything?

Also, is there anything further about your family's food allergies you'd like me to know? I'd hate to poison the loved ones of someone on my Nice list!

I didn't get a password in my PM either.

HO HO HO!!! KAREN LOVES SNOW!!!


Lover of all things snow, Mrs. S and I are snow fans ourselves!

SO... why don't you pull up a chair by the fire and tell old Santa a few things about yourself.

What kind of snacks?

salty?
sweet?
crunchy?

What's you favorite hot beverage?

Do you enjoy Christmas music? ( Pretty sure I know the answer)

Any fur babies at home?

Do you collect anything?

Do you enjoy Mexican food?

Anything else you'd like to tell Santa?

Is there something you just don't like?

Time to feed the reindeer. They tend to get cranky when they're hungry. I'll be back later with more questions!

Just a friendly heads up, you might want to google veggie boards, and log in there, rather then come here, log out and log back into your own name. Trust me on that.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I live with an egg allergen, a dairy allergen, and a severe soy allergen (no soy, soya, or soy leicethin, please), and two gluten allergens.
I also live with a cat and 3 dogs. Thanks.

Ho Ho HO! KibbleForLola! Santa will be hurrying down your chimney this Christmas for sure! Now hop on my lap and tell me:

- What is your favourite cuisine?
- Do you prefer sweet or sour?
- What do you wish you could get where you live, but can't?
- Favourite colour?
- Is there any thing you really don't like?
- Any other ethical considerations Santa should take into account (palm oil for example)?
- What was the best present you ever received?
- What makes you happy?

I like salty, sweet and crunchy! Mostly sweet, though.
Favorite hot beverage would have to be....COFFEEEEEE! Strong and full bodied, but NOT flavored.
I love Christmas music and pretty much sing all day long...out loud...at work...which is quite annoying for my co-workers but they love me so I get away with it.
I have two senior cat furbabies, both 16 years old!
I am a bit of a pack-rat, which doesn't really count as a collector of anything worthwhile. My daughter insists I'm borderline "hoarder" but that's just silly. I hate throwing perfectly good stuff away!
I'm not much of a Mexican Food fan since going veggie and giving up cheese.
Not a fan of herbs or strong spices (like oregano, cilantro, curry, etc.) but I like the smell of cinnamon, nutmeg, peppermint.
Don't sweat it...just have fun!!

Santa has a few questions for you...
1) Tea or coffee (or neither)?
2) What do you like to do in your spare time (if it exists)?
3) Do you prefer edibles or non-edibles (or the best of both worlds)?

Talk soon!
Santa

Hey, question...at what point in this process do Secret Santas reveal themselves? Do we give it away inside of the package we send?

Ho Ho Ho, Scorpius!!!! Sit your bespectacled self on Santa's lap and tell me what you'd like from me.

I already have a few ideas, but tell me a little about yourself. Favorite snacks, candy, colors, etc. Any pets? Don't be shy about making specific requests, Santa lives to serve

You're welcome. This will be the second time for me. I did a spring exchange a year or two ago. I also didn't realize Santa lived in Norway. I thought he lived at the North Pole.

Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa is needs to speak with CycloneT about her Christmas wishlist!

-What sorts of things would you like to receive this year? Food? Treats? Books? Candles?

-Santa knows about your mango allergy. Are there any other allergies or distastes in your family that Santa should avoid?

-What are some of your favorite flavors and scents?

-What sort of treats and snacks do you like to munch on? Chocolate? Nuts?

-Do you like coffee or tea? What types specifically?

-Santa's sleigh will be stopping in the United States before coming to visit you. (This makes geographical sense due to Christmas magic). Are there any products from there that you know you would enjoy?

-Do you have any pets?

-Any other ideas that you'd like to share with Santa?
