Josy (aceofhearts83) | 668 comments Since I won't be around much over the weekend and I don't want to leave my giftee hanging, I'm going to reveal now that I've been Secret Santa to Allison :)

Allison, I hope you enjoy your books and I'm wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a fantastic new year!!


I also want to use this opportunity to once again thank Heather, for organizing this event every year, my awesome Secret Santa Sunshine, and all the other amazing elves who visited me during this event and sent me more goodies than I could have ever imagined :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you 💕💕💕 for spoiling me so much and making this event so much fun!

All of you are very special for bringing so much happiness and joy to so many people during these last few weeks :)

I hope you all have a peaceful and relaxing Holiday Season and an awesome new year!!

Jewel | 226 comments I'm not sure how much I will be around this weekend, myself, so I'll go ahead and reveal that I was Secret Elf to Sunshine! Sunshine, it has been a pleasure and I hope you enjoy your gifts! I do recall you acknowledging them in the Goodie's thread, but they are still showing as unclaimed on Amazon, so be sure to do that.

As for the Elfcapades, I also went by 2 super secret under-cover elf names this year....I started out as Elfness Elfingshire, but then decided on Mistletoe Minx. I guess I have a whole year to come up with next year's Elf.

I also want to thank the AMAZING and GENEROUS Elves this year that made these Elfcapades so much fun! Every year, this event is more and more fun. Until next year!!

I was Secret Santa to Kat and was luckily able to get round the pesky cross-border gifting by sending a physical book!

Hope you enjoy it.

Thank you to my lovely gifting elves as well, I'm not sure who my Santa was but I received so many lovely books and Gift Cards this year :)

Thanks, as always, to the lovely Heather for organising it all.

Shh...it's a secret was the name I went by and I promise next year to be more creative🤔

I wanted to give little gifts to my Goodreads friends who participated this year just to say I appreciate you. I hope everyone of you has a wonderful holiday.

Lastly, I want to thank the secret elves who gifted me. I really appreciate your kindness. You guys are wonderful 😘

First of all, thank you again to Heather for organizing this SS exchange : it's a special moment of the year that I've come to cherish a lot.

Thank you also to all the elves. I'm so glad to see many of my usual GR friends here, but also many regular elves and some newbies. You are an awesome bunch of elves and no doubt the real Santa would love to have you in his squad 👍

Finally, I thank all the elves who visited me with their hands full of so many shiny goodies. I now feel like a little kid jumping in front of the Christmas tree, eyes bulging and wondering where to start. Thank you for all these books and for your friendship 😘 ❤.

SimplyƝì₭ (simplynik) | 43 comments This has been another great year. I had a few secret elves so I am very thankful. As I think of it, I have done this for maybe 3 years and I have never been claimed.. ugh. It's ok really.

But I am proud to say I had Michaela W.

OMG, Christelle! I had completely forgotten until I went back to last years comments. Wow, that was super clever and now so obvious, LOL. :D

I am not planning to reveal my Elf name. ;) Buuuuut, now that I see how this Elf naming business works, I have some new ammunition to prepare for next year. And I admit now that I will be using more than one Elf name next year. Bwahahahaha!
