    Dancing Chocobo EoFF's Secret Santa 2015!

    Give Somebody A Reason To Smile This Holiday Season


    Wait, this again?

    That's right! Back again for the fourth year is the community Secret Santa event! For those of you that are new or drank too much eggnog last year and blotted out all of December, EoFF's Secret Santa is a great way of showing your appreciation for other members of the community. In conjunction with the Candy Cane Delivery, at EoFF we really want to foster goodwill and kindness to all our members.

    I mean, we try to do this all the time, but particularly during the holiday season!

    Sounds good, but what do we do?

    That's a good question. So here's how it works, step by step:



    1. Reply in the thread that you are interested in becoming a Santa. Easy as. The deadline for this is the 14th December.
    2. After sign-ups close, I will use a randomiser to assign everyone their Secret Santa!
    3. Everyone will have to give gifts to two members: one member is another Secret Santa. The other member is someone else who didn't participate in the event but is deserving of a present all the same! Presents for all!
    4. You can give as many gifts as you like! This is an on-line Santa, so we're not expecting actual gifts (though if you're feeling particularly generous...). This is more of a gesture of thoughtfulness expressed through the medium of Secret Santa. Gifts can range from images of a present we would give that person, electronic gift cards, to actual pieces of artwork, signature sets to use or pieces of literature. Most people typically give approximately 1-4 gifts per recipient.
    5. There will be a second deadline for the submission of Secret Santa gifts. All submissions will be through me, Formy, via PM by the 23rd December, 19:00 GMT.That gives you over a week, ample time!
    6. The Big reveal will take place on Christmas Eve! Again around 19:00 GMT.


    1-4 gifts? How will I manage THAT!?

    With ease. This is effectively an imaginary exercise, giving your Secret Santas the present you wish you could give them in person. It may sound like a pointless exercise, but Christmas can be a hard time for some people. Even the kind gesture of an electronic gift can really elevate someone's spirits.

    Moreover, it can be a great opportunity to poke fun at member's eccentricities, make hilarious in-jokey gag gifts, and the like. Seriously, go wild.

    Any examples of fine gifts in the past?

    Struggling for inspiration? Look at this selection of post Santa goodies and be in awe!

    A veritable selection of images and GIFs
    All expenses paid trip to the Golden Saucer!
    Mermaid Shell Bra. No, Seriously
    The best MS Paint has to offer!
    An expletive laden chainsaw katana
    Final Fantasy VII themed Nativity
    'Vintage' American Straight Jacket!

    And many more! Hopefully you've realised that when we mean 'gifts', we really mean 'anything'.

    You won't find these in your stockings.

    Sounds awesome! Lemme in!

    Great! Just post in this thread, clearly stating your intention to join in! Remember, you have until the 14th December to participate, but even if you choose not to, there's still the possibility that you may be drawn as a lucky second recipient. Because more love is good.

    Confirmed Santas!

    Awesome! I'm pleasantly surprised with the level of interest.

    There's still two more days left until the participation cut-off. I've just begun drafting a list of active EoFF members together to be the recipient of the 'wildcard' gift sets, and I've begun messaging a few people who I think could make great Secret Santas.

    Seeing as you asked me so nicely, go for it (I'd probably end up being the wild card anyway xD)

    It's the 15th! Thanks everyone who signed up for being a Secret Santa, but sign-ups are now closed! I will be sending PMs to the Secret Santas (via randomiser) their two recipients: another secret Santa, and a currently active member of EoFF.

    Stay tuned, and keep an eye on your Mognets Santas!
