    10 Years as Papa Elf

    Where has the last 10 years gone? I took over the reigns of Secret Santa in 2007! I wasn't the first to host Secret Santa. there was a couple before me. Looking at the archive to see my first Secret Santa thread, its interesting to note a few things. ( I started the Secret Santa thread way earlier than Nov 1st. I gave myself the Papa Elf name that year. My first Secret Santa had 80 participants!

    Through the years, I moved the start up date to Nov 1st and then started the Papa Elf Special.

    It has been suggested I make the sign up automatic where I use a secret santa website to organize it,, but I have yet to find one that works the way I want it to. I thought about writing my own, but I haven't had the time to do it. I already have this years Secret Santa started, so maybe next time, I would have a site up and working. (If anyone would like to help with developing the sight, please let me know!)

    Anyway, Please check out this years Secret Santa. It would be great to have 80 participants again this year! (

    I can help with the website design.

    At the same time, you might want to consider just using a google form. All the inputs get entered into a spreadsheet automagically.
