    We do want to thank the people who voted in the last election. Because of them we can keep our jobs with Santa here at the North Pole. We won't have to go work for wal-mart as we would have had to if that bad guy had won. Now we just have t o worry about our state seceding........again! Our area went blue, so maybe we can stay.
    Can we PLEASE keep politics off the Secret Santa thread?

    This IS NOT the place for it. And I say that regardless of whether I agree or not with views expressed. If a post came up that I agreed with 5000% and wanted to vote immediately for THAT person for President, I still would think that this thread is a totally inappropriate place for it and that people should not parade out their political views and give speeches here.

    This thread is for Secret Santa and to tease each other, something to make us smile, something to perhaps even make us forget about real life, which still has all sorts of difficulties regardless of who is in office and still would have had difficulties had all election results been flip-flopped. Lots of people come to this thread looking for a possible lift or escape on a tough day, enjoying others teasing each other even if no recent word from your own. Today, for instance, I'm packing to head for a family funeral. Others have already mentioned on this thread how much it gave them a lift on a particular tough day just to read a tease. And I know there are people right here on COTH having far more "reality bites" days than me (prayers to you, Tamara). This one thread above all is supposed to be purely upbeat and fun for us.

    This is not an appropriate place to air your political views, regardless of what those might be. Please, leave it off this thread.

    JSjumper: what is your favorite color? Your elf here has an idea and that could be useful. Hmmm...

    I am a "stelf" only because I can not figure out how to make an alter elfself. So we are out there either on purpose or because of our own stupidity

    Ooh, I haz an elf!

    ShoppingSanta, as far as stuff I need/want, the only other thing I thought of is some new earplugs (or ear bunnies as I call them... ha ha) for my silly horse who sometimes sees/hears dead people. His fuzzy ones are looking a bit the worse for wear lately, and I'd love a pair of these:

    And umm... yeah... not a huge fan of those polos! The only other things I seriously *don't* like are things with paint horses (running and hiding from the paint fans ), they're bad juju for me as I had a life altering experience with one. I know, I know, it's discrimination and all that but I can't help it!

    I do enjoy getting horse related things from my SS since my real life peeps are failures at shopping for horsey stuff!

    I think there are a lot of Stelfs... for the reason sunken meadow gave.
    I think it is easy to make an alter. Just get a free mail account. Make up a name, Come here, Log out of your regular name. and sign up for a new account using an alter.

    But some elves don't find it easy to create an alter or maybe have life get in the way, so please don't knock'em for it! I always try to be a visible elf, but, heck, it took me forever to remember my login the other day! Most stelfs deliver wonderful things and there's something to be said for coming home to find an unexpected present: just might make someone's day/month/year.

    We Elf Kings have traveled afar
    Searching gifts to wrap for our star.
    O'er seas and fields and mountains,
    Now we wait patiently.

    O-Oh! Star of Meghan, SS O'Mine!
    We can't wait to send your GIFT!
    Just a few more weeks until
    Secret Santa's big reveal

    If we warmbloods can make a ss elf, anyone can. Just make a new email address, we made up a new one, and then join up on coth with your secret santa name and that email address. of course we did it once with a hotmail address, which our new computer refused to let us access. And which chocomare had warned us about. So when we tried to sign up as "Eleanor's elves," we couldn't access it. So we followed directions and cane back with another email address with yahoo, using our nicknames, and signed onto coth as one elf, since we'd messed up the elves email.

    So don't use hotmail unless you know what you are doing around computers. We warmbloods wanted to make sure that Eleanor enjoyed Christmas this year. And now she's not feeling well! We hope the teas and bennies that we sent her did not make her sick!
    We didn't send the garter snake we found right outside our pasture.

    So as long as the elves are shopping and mailing, stealth will be ok. But try to sign on and tease and rhyme. It's fun. Make up new email address, say at yahoo, then come to coth and sign with elf name. Then go to email address and follow coth's directions and you're on as an elf. We never check our emails, just our PMs. And those notifications. Some meanies there, particularly on other threads.

    Just make sure you don't grinch. We're only here because last year someone told us what had been happening to Eleanor! We were shocked. Grinches are meanies. We sure wouldn't want to find a lump of coal in our stockings. Well, we hang stockings, but we cannot have anything in them because one of us is very demanding and would tear his stall down to get to his treats. So we hang them, but we get our treats out of a feed room. Just because we aren't patient.

    Maybe, if you still cannot sign up with our somewhat confusing instructions, you could get some other elf to let your person know that you are shopping? Not Chocosanta, since she's probably exhausted from all the work. But maybe someone could help you contact your person to let her know that you are there.

    A little tip for those using Chrome with the "remember me" feature: When you (or at least when I do) go to COTH, my sign in name is always in the box for the password. Just click on the username box, and it will appear there - otherwise you can just type it in. The password that will be in the box, is normally the password of the last user you were, so here's a tip: keep the password of your Elf username and your normal COTH user name the same. Super easy!

    Another tip for those with iPhones or iPads: if you don't want to set up a whole new email account, just use your iCloud email address. Mine is set to where I can check iCloud and Gmail all at the same time. Again, super easy! (Windows phones have a live.com email that you can also use)

    1. What sizes do your horse and pony wear?
    2. What are Chip and Moo's show names, if they have them?
    3. Are you more interested in getting horsey gifts or "normal people" gifts as I like to call them?
    4. Your favorite color(s)?
    Yay! Hi Elf!
    1.Chip wears a 78 in blankets, regular horse sized stuff for everything else. Moo is a 64 in blankets, cob sized head, probably pony for everything else.
    2. Chip is Casino Royale, Moo is Hometown Honeymoon
    3. Either/or is fine with me! I like both!
    4. Favorite colors for the horses are navy, hunter, or burgundy. Favorite colors for me would probably also be navy, I also like purple.

    My CANTER cutie Chip and IHSA shows!
