    Mail man once again has come and gone without anything for me except local ads. Did anyone send me a coupon for Pizza Hut?

    It's a shame that the Secret Santa thingy flopped );

    I'd love to see more happy faces but guess you can't have everything.
    I did enjoy the things the others got and posted tho!

    feels really strange that it 'flopped' :/
    but knowing how the postal service acts, I would give it another couple of weeks before drawing ant conclusions. and also, maybe many who did receive just didn't post here?

    I got mine from, I told the sender but forgot to post here I guess.

    Not sure when I'm gonna have time to put pictures, but it was a Lego car, bouncy ball, and a few things made with his 3d printer, which was really, really neat.

    Thanks!

    I still haven't gotten anything either. I had an international santa, and I didn't look into getting tracking on it because it was already pretty expensive to ship. My santa hasn't posted about whether they got it or not. I did ship it in November, but oh well.

    I don't think that would be a good idea. From the sounds of it, most, if not all of us did send stuff, just the stupid mailing system is, well, being stupid. And for all I know, mine got to the person, but they are being quiet and such.

    But I'm giving up hope because the memory cards I sent back to people have got to them while who ever's package for me hasn't arrived.

    It could just be the mailing system...it usually gets bogged down during X'mas. (I'm going to get my dad to notify me for that.)

    I sent a package to Finland right before Christmas (bit too late to arrive BEFORE Christmas though...) and it arrived right on time. Same for a letter (well, small packet) sent early December from Finland.

    The postal system gets a little bogged down during Christmas, but mostly they're just busier, delays aren't month long. They're maybe a few days. Blaming the mail system is a little silly at this point.

    EDIT: Oh and I had packages arriving all over the goddamn place, I order most of my presents online...they all arrived on time riiight up to around Dec 20th or so).

    I dunno. Maybe people sent really late in the game? I sent mine around mid-November (it was international), and people are silly and paranoid. I know my post-man at home (I'm at university now), is fucking terrible - he works/delivers maybe two days of the week.

    Update: I got it! (I forgot I gave my university address, and it was stuck in the mailbox over the holidays.)

    I think the top is mints, middle is coffee candy, and the bottom is liquor/cherry filled chocolates. (The bottom got crushed a tiny bit, and it smells terrific!)

    *I ate the crushed one, and it's delicious! I love these, and this company uses dark chocolate...

    Candy and a small little house figure. (Are these traditional in Croatia?)

    Thank you! I love this little present and trinket. (It will be coming home with me after this semester.)
