A Note to All Secret Saturns
I will personally guarantee that everyone who signs up for Secret Saturnalia this year will receive a gift so please don't let that concern hold you back from participation. If for whatever reason you signed up and then don't get a gift from your SS please send me a PM around Christmas and I will send you a replacement gift.
Also, please do your best to take photos of your gifts when you receive them and post them, either here or in a separate thread, in a timely manner. It can be a big let-down to a gift giver to have no feedback from their recipient about their gift! So please don't forget, it is just funner for everyone that way!

All of them are nice gifts. Your Secret Santas have all been very generous.
Since we are showing off other previous gifts, here's the rest of my Saturnalia gifts.
SS Pairing Update
I am going to try to get the second round of pairings together at the end of the week! If you wish to participate it might be a good idea to try to get your PM to me by Thursday / Friday so you can make the round and still have plenty of time to select a gift and get it shipped.
@Curtisimo for getting going.
I was about to send my giftee a slabbed ancient along with a gift-wrapped pair of pliers - but then I found something better. I found a variety on an ancient coin. My giftee had mentioned in a thread that they didn't have this variety. I hope they still need it because the gift is on its way.
Happy Saturnalia everybody.
Io Saturnalia CT Ancients Forum!
As a reminder, I will be sending out the recipient information for the second round of pairings tomorrow evening. If you wish to participate I highly recommend sending me a PM before tomorrow afternoon as our next pairing after tomorrow won’t be until Dec. 3 when the entry period closes.
