Watching all this unfold has been a joy for me. Almost as much as getting to browse tobaccos im unfamiliar with while shopping for my secret Santa. The real Christmas Day is always a bit stuffy for me. More fun since I had kids though.

Supposedly what Hef smoked exclusively, Alex. What that means to you (or anyone) I have no idea! And now, here's a pic of a bunny with a pancake on its head-

The jolly old elf, Santa, was past here today also. Forgive the cluttered photo. I just shoved things around on my reloading bench to get a decent pic.

From C&D, Small Batch Sansepolcro & Super Balkan.
Dunhill Nightcap (Always a favorite)
Yummy Peterson Irish Flake, 1792 Flake, and Lakeland Dark.
Generous bags of Gawith Black Irish Twist, Brown Irish X, Dark Flake Unscented, McClelland 2035 Dark Navy Flake, a pouch of Murray's Warrior Plug (which is outstanding).

Goodies,(which I can never seem to find and decide upon myself),
Mandarin Green Tea
Butterfields' Peach Buds candy
Gillespie's Peanuts
Two bags of Salted peanuts from Georgia
Two different dark chocolate bars of a type unknown to me.
Moravian Sugar Cookies
Two "Durn Good" season
And a bag of fluffly, tapered, bristle, BJ Long pipe cleaners.

WOW! Thanks Santa! :sunny:

Keep those eyes peeled. It was so windy here packages could have been blown down the street. I know that some have been delivered. Some are on the way. Some have not yet been sent. We still have a few days for mailing. And there may even be a few sneaky types taking advantage of the chaos :cherry: .


Ho Ho Ho! :santa:

My secret Santa delivery ended up being a two parter - one arrived this past Saturday (with no confirmation from target), and the second half got sent away today, with a hopeful delivery of Friday...

My poor recipient is gonna get buried! I can't wait to see the results.

Those aren't just stocking stuffers, they're stocking busters--great work, everyone! Warms my cockles to to see so much holiday cheer up in this thread...even as I fear for those of us not yet visited as Krampusnacht draws down around us. If I don't post for a while y'all will know it's cause I ended up stuffed in a sack, beaten with sticks, and thrown in the river.

Again.
