Oheyo! Only 2 weeks to go until the deadline. 4th thread of the holiday. Confirmations are on the way. Please be patient.

Fill out the form below to join up! You’ll need to send it to sweetsecretsanta2020@gmail.com

Here’s a link:

///Form FAQs///

>WTF where’s the email copypasta? Why are we using a form now?
Get with the times grandpa! We used this form last year and it was a resounding success. Trust us, the old process really sucked.
>Santa, I can’t edit the form!
Select “File”, “Download as”, “Microsoft Excel (.xlsx)” and save a copy for yourself. Fill it out and send it to us as an attachment
>But Santa, I don’t have Excel!
If you have a Google account, you can also create a copy on your Google Drive.
Just click “File”, “Make a copy” and send us a link sharing the document with us in your email.
If you choose to use Google Drive, set the spreadsheet to allow anyone with the link to edit. This speeds up the processing time on our end.
>Santa! I’m /g/ as fuck and I don’t want to use Excel or the Google Botnet!
Scribble your answers on your screen and send us a picture of it!

///General FAQs///

> What is Secret S/a/nta?
A chance to give, receive and post gifts and be a part of an experience with other /a/nons locally, nationally, or even globally with a bit of X-mas spirit!
> Who is hosting this event? Can I help out?
Your friendly hosts are now Santa Loli, Santafaggot, SpoonSanta, Santa’s Elf, SantaCake SantaBucket, SantaTrap, and SantaGrunt. We are not accepting new Santas at this time.
> How do I join the gift exchange?
Correctly fill out the signup form and email it to us as an attachment or link before the deadline. Once we process it, you’ll receive a confirmation.
> Deadline to join?
OCTOBER 27TH 12:01 AM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME!!!
Dōshite!? Because we need time to match you all, and give everyone enough time to procrastinate until Thanksgiving and then draw cards, buy gifts, and ship them both in time for Christmas.
> Why should I trust this?
It's up to you. We’ve had multiple successful SS events hosted by us for the past few years.
Although the average amount of people not receiving gifts is low, the risk still exists. Please be aware that your mileage will vary. However, we do provide a grinched protection program which lets people send gifts to those who didn't receive anything at all... even after X-mas!
> Can I give you guys stuff?
If you want. I think Santa Loli might have a PO box by now, ask her about it. The other Santas will do what they feel like.
> I ALREADY JOINED, HOW DO I FIX SOMETHING?
If you need to make changes to your wishlist or address, or anything else:
please RE-SEND the application with the changes made as a REPLY to your first e-mail!
This means send the whole application! Let us know what changes were made
> Is the price of shipping included in the price tier?
No shipping costs are not included in the tier.
> When are the threads going to be?
Threads are created only on Fridays/weekends until we get closer to X-mas. The Santas will create them.

///COVID-19 Change FAQs Part 1///

> Holy shit, what happened to the tiers? How can I buy plastic butts for my anon?
Sorry, but due to COVID-19 shipping is fucked worldwide right now. It’s widely anticipated that this Winter will see a rise in cases and a corresponding decrease in postal service quality. For USA anons, the mail-in election will also fuck the USPS for most of November and likely December as well.
> But how does having less/cheaper gifts help with all that?
It means you’ll all be able to focus more and ship them out earlier. It’ll also limit financial exposure in case gifts start getting lost.
> Why are we still doing 10 cards then?
We would rather you send 10 out and get 3 back than send 5 and get 0. Post for letters has not been as affected by the changes as packages.
>>
>>210259758
///COVID-19 Change FAQs Part 2///

> Am I going to be responsible for lost/late gifts this year?
All gift senders MUST provide a tracking number to us this year.
Please send it as a response to your gift assignment. If your post doesn’t provide this service or you cannot afford it, then you must send us a picture of what you’re shipping. If and only if you do this, you will not be responsible for what happens to your gift after you ship it. Your anon will be anti-grinched if it does not arrive.
> What’s a handmade gift?
Take a look around in the threads. You’ll see plenty of examples of knitting, laser cut wood, horrifying waifu masks, and much much more. People bake cookies/brownies, or buy snacks and booze local to their country. You may not get out what you put in, but remember that giving is the most important part.
> Do you have any other helpful tips for me?
Start everything early. It will take time to receive your gift and to send it out.
Get stuff bought as soon as possible and ship it as soon as you can.
Pay attention to your local postal service’s guidelines.
Be aware that prices may have increased dramatically since you last shipped something. Holiday price surges are incoming.
SAL mail has been suspended indefinitely, so prepare to plan around that too.
Don’t send a hand-made gift or food if you’re feeling sick.
Don’t go delivering gifts IRL, even if someone lives nearby to you.
And please, do not lewd the Rona-chan.

put them in a properly-sized metal tin. The less room they have to rattle around the more secure they'll be

Dollar stores usually have metal tins. I've packaged my cookies along side some tissue paper.

Pad them in plastic baggies and submerge them in dirt. That worked for my middle school egg drop project. Plus it will make packaging dirt cheap.

Signups underway for homocards as well.

>What's homocards?
A smaller Christmas cards exchange that runs parallel to Secret S/a/nta. For anons who are partial to the male anime aesthetic.
To participate, copy, paste and fill out the form below, then send it to homocards.santa2020@gmail.com
Signups are open until November 1st, 9 PM PST.
If you have any special request let me know in your email.


Name:


Country:


FULL Address (check https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Address for the correct format to use):


How many cards do you want to exchange (0-10):


I want to send my cards (choose ONE):
a) anywhere
b) to my continent only
c) to my country only


Card Wishlist (This is what will be sent to everyone who gets assigned to send a card to you. Describe here what you'd like to see in your card, e.g. you're husbando, OTP, favorite shows/manga, etc.. Male characters ONLY):


Lewd is okay? (Y/N):

>>210265364
I've never seen threads die so quickly in previous years though, makes for a much shorter advertising window for signups. I think the hard $25 tier is going to make a ton of former participants decide not to bother as well.

Do you think everyone's just going to start licking their parcels and letters once they get them? Just keep yourself protected with good hygiene after getting it and you'll be fine.

Retarded first-timer and hue here. I was looking at shipping prices and it seems some countries only have premium available. Please tell I'm doing something wrong and there isn't a chance I'll have to pay over 500 bucks to send a tiny piece of paper because some dude from Yemen decided to join in.
>>
>>210270793
Do you not understand how fast this shit spreads? The second you touch the letter your hands will get contaminated, then you'll touch your door knob to open the house door and before you know it your entire home will be contaminated. Shit's fucked, washing hands won't help you, you'll need to disinfect every little surface in the house at that point.

>>210271051
You can choose to send things to your continent only to avoid something like that.

>>210270924
Unless you already have severe medical conditions you’re not gonna die from the ‘rona.
Maybe just get some permanent damage to your lungs.

PSA for everyone - you can only sign up for one of the gift pools this year. Some of you anons have been signing up for both.
The spreadsheet is rigged to put you in the newfriends pool when that happens, but SantaTrap has been nice enough to put you in the whitelist tier anyway (if you're on the list.)
I've updated the sheet to be a bit clearer for people still applying. If you've already signed up, you do not need to fix your sheet.

The risk of participating seems pretty trivial. It is not like I will stop getting junk mail, so I may as well get something worthwhile out of having to clean out my mailbox. I will however leave it at just cards so I don't have to go out to any more stores than necessary to buy extras.

That applies to literally any circumstance that entails you setting foot outside of your house. If someone breathing on a grocery store shelf 3 months ago is enough to catch the bat-soup whoop then you almost certainly already caught it asymptomatically anyway.

You're being pretty ridiculous. The dose makes the poison, and the amount of remnant virus particles on a several week-old parcel is miniscule (if not zero). If you then touch it, only a fraction of those make it to your hands, and then a fraction of that make it to a doorknob, and then a fraction of that make it onto someone else's hands, and then a fraction of that actually make it into their body if they touch their nose. You're not gonna be put in an ICU because 5 viruses entered your nose.

>>210270637
>You do know that the virus can survive up to 3 months on some surfaces right?
It survives like 24 hours at most on cardboard in a normal setting. The longest anyone has gotten it to last is 28 days, in the dark in a sterilized lab environment where they were testing how long it could last at rest with zero exposure to UV light. By the time your stuff gets through the post to you, it'll probably be inert. If you're very paranoid, leave it in a transparent box in the sun for a couple days.

if it's truly that infectious you almost certainly already got infected back in the spring anyway and it had so little effect that you apparently didn't even notice.

The two other years I participated in homocards I got some truly lovely cards of my husbando, would love to add some more to my collection folder.

US cards go just fine. It's the Asia and South America that cause issues. I rarely see my cards posted that go there.
>>
>>210291429
USA is usually the best cross-continental; it's when you send it to the dark reaches of the Amazon rainforest, or some rural hamlet in china; or worse yet, when you send it to the dark land of A*straila and you get a message that they recieved it some time in early-mid summer.

as heretic as it may sound, I don't actually have a waifu of sorts as I can't seem to feel strongly enough for one. I do have several waifu-tier girls in mind though. if I want to receive 5 cards, can I list 5 different girls or do I need to decide on just one? what's the better option?
>>
>>210292198
i list my favorite girl but also girls from other shows i like in case they dont like my waifu enough to draw her
>>
>>210292198
You can list as many as you'd like, whether it's for one card or all of them. The fun of it is seeing them all in one place, though.
>>
>>210292198
You don't have to list any waifus in particular, you can list whatever you want. I usually just list a few shows/manga I want cards themed around and let my anons pick whatever they want.
>>
>>210292256
>>210292268
>>210292272
oh okay that's cool. I think I'll give my favourite shows along with my favourite girl from each then
>>
>>210292198
Just list them alphabetically and specify that you don't particularly like one more than the others. Then anons will probably be more likely to focus on different ones.
>>
>>210292976
this is what I think I'll send

>My favourite show is ______

>I also really like ____ and ____ - best girls _____ and _____ & _____

>_____ and _____ from ______ are really cute too

>If you are erotically inclined then ______ makes me feel things

the last bit sounds cringe but I have a feeling some anons will want to make lewd cards. does this sound good?

Wow, hard. If you have a porch that strangers may have entered then you can wash the door knobs too, but you don't really need to do much more than that if you can keep from touching everything you see until you've washed. Use feet, knees, and elbows wherever possible.

You could even open the mail, read it, put it on display, then wash your hands. Just don't rub the card all over your body and pillows.

So is it mandatory to give a gift in order to receive one?

Are you going to tell us when we're supposed to be sending the gift to our target?

I might have to change addresses in the future so is it okay if I put my school's address instead?

I've been procrastinating on signing up because my wrist injury's been so bad this year I don't know how many cards I can draw/write, but in previous years nobody called me out for writing cards with my left hand so I guess I'll just draw with my left too!

How much time do you typically put into your cards? I see people talking about how much love and effort they put into it, but most of the cards I get are just get simple 10 minute pencil drawings with a generic message.
>>
>>210347484
maybe it took them alot of time trying to put together what they wanted to draw for you. you only see the card they sent you not the ones they scraped.
>>
>>210347484
Depends on the character(s). Some take less time than others because I draw them freehand (usually with a screenshot to reference), ink, and then color; after that I paste them onto the construction paper and decorate from the inside out. Maybe 30 to 45 minutes each depending on how productive I am, although I’m self-motivated by my creativity.
>>
>>210347484
It depends on the person making them. There are some great artists that can make fantastic cards in 15 minutes, other people like me take hours and several practice cards just to get kindergarten-tier scribbles out.
>>
>>210347484
Two or three hours, drawing from scratch isn't a terrible pain but factoring in coloring tends to make it a bit more painful.

It depends on what I'm doing that year, but honestly, for me, the hard part is drawing, I just can't up up with stuff right away. So at least 45 mins I think.

This is my first year doing secret santa but reading this thread now I'm getting a little worried. On my wishlist I mostly put anime/manga I like but I did put a little bit of non-/a/ shit at the end just to give the anon a better idea of what I like. Was this a bad idea? Should I remove that stuff and email the santas? Will it get me charcoal?
>>
>>210360830
what did you list?
>>
>>210360830
It's pretty common for anons to list /a/-adjacent stuff like 2hu or VNs. So long as your list is primarily anime/manga and the other stuff is at least in the same neighbourhood you'll probably be fine.
