Without wanting to be a secret Santa party pooper, I enjoy guessing who mine is from. Can we not reveal or discuss the senders until we have all opened? Cheers!

Knowing as I do where the three remaining parcels are due to and where from, I have to say I would be utterly astonished if they get there on time.... :(

Received within UK and US - 8/9
Received outside of UK and US - 0/5

Coincidence?

Ummmm... This is a highly simplistic way of viewing the info available....

I, of course, know who was sending to all of the "outside of UK & US" people...

Well, I seem to have a second Secret Santa - not so secret, actually, but a very kind thing to do. My SS package went missing in transit last year so my 2016 Santa has sent me some other stuff. Thank you so much, Maarts - They're under the tree.
