Yes, I know it's only half way through September, but I also know how long this takes to set up!
If anyone would like to take part, please pm me with your real name as well as your ship name, your address, and whether you want to send only to your own continent (ie N. America to N. America, Europe to Europe, Britain to Britain) or if you are happy to send anywhere in the world. Please also give me any special instructions - such as being allergic to particular things or having a special interest in something.
I will try and pair you, the Santee, with a suitable Santa. The idea is to chose a gift of approx £5 value (in the local currency) and send it to your Santee so it arrives before Christmas. (Pleasse remember you will have postage charges on top of the cost of your gift)
You therfore have until the last wek in October to register. I will then attempt to send out Santee's details the first week of November, giving prospective Santas time to get presents and post them. I know that last postage dates for some countries will be a bit tight even then, so this is why we need to start early!

I'm one of those people who needs things sent to my real name. I live in an apartment building and the postperson won't know what mailbox to put it in if there's a package addressed to la vie en rouge (I think this may be true for other people?)

You have until the end of October, so Earwig and Morth East Quine, you are OK.

When I send out details of Santees, I give the rl name as well as shipname - unfortunately, I thought that Robert Armin was a real life name a well as a ship name, and as a result poor Robert never got his present.
