Hey there, everyone! :wave: It's been a while since I posted my last blog. :)

We're getting closer and closer to reaching 2,000 members and we will soon become the first Secret Santa themed exchange group on deviantART to reach 100,000 pageviews! How awesome will that be! :excited::heart:

Anyways, just a quick heads up that there are now less than 100 days until Christmas 2018!

Right now, this week appears to be the quietest week of the sign-up period. 14 participants have signed up as Week 3 is coming to a close and a total of 182 participants have signed up for the Secret Santa 2018 event so far! Although this is really a brilliant start to the event so far, we're starting to slowly level out. As the month of September is more than half way over, 62 participants have signed up this month.

Still, a lot of work needs to be done during the rest of this month as well as into October and November (up through the Sunday, November 19 at 9 PM PST when sign-ups close).

Now is the time for anyone who has not signed up for the Secret Santa 2018 event at this group to do so! To sign up for the Secret Santa 2018 event, go here: fav.me/dclc6pd

You can post your wishlist in the journal entry or Sta.sh on your deviantART account. Under some circumstances, you can reuse your wishlist from previous events that were held in this group in the past. You can also post your wishlist in group notes too! :D

If you have any questions about this latest journal entry or the event, please let me know and we'll discuss. :)

But other than that, please keep these wishlists coming, I would like to see it! :dance:

I can't make any promises, but we're hoping that we can get at least 200 to 250 participants before the month of September comes to a end! :D

According to Wikipedia, Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift.

Wishlists are anonymous until the day arrives to hand out the gifts and send your gift and receive yours exclusively from Secret Santa! At the Secret Santa Network, we're ready to handle as many gifts that we can possibly get though!
Summer Secret Santa is very similar to the Secret Santa event held on Christmas, but it is instead held in the late Spring and Summer with sign-ups starting in the late Winter. The Summer SS event usually focuses on the Summer, hot weather as

hiii,, I am a member of the group and I'd like
to tell you that this Secret Santa is a group
that hosts events wherein artists gift themselves
artworks during certain occasions like Christmas~<3
Every artist that joins will fill out a form and be
given a secret artist to draw their OC! c: When you join
you will be noted a random wish list of a random
artist to draw their characters with specific clothing,
setting, expression...etc. unless it wasn't stated. You
will also receive a gift art from a random artist on the
day of the event, in this case, Christmas Eve ~ <3 ;w;
If you are still confused, I recommend browsing through
the groups journals or contacting an admin for help >A<)

Have a lovely day, hun! cx
