5th Annual Chilehead Secret Santa

Buddah's Secret Santaberg Spicy Gift Exchange

In the spirit of giving, I present you the Chilehead version of Secret Santa. It is a holiday spicy gift exchange between people in our Facebook group: Chileheads 2. Since the original Chileheads group now has surpassed 5,000 people, (up 1500 from last year), I can’t risk the number of Secret Santas that might join in. Last year I created a 2nd group called Chileheads 2, which is now over 730 members. That group was meant to weed out all the pepper pics and the endless reviews and keep it more about the community that revels in spicy product making, great fiery recipes and festivals that people love to attend. Only posting this in the Chileheads 2 group, my hope is that it will keep the # of people relatively controllable for me to handle. Otherwise, Secret Santaberg might need more lil’ helpers.

4th Annual Chilehead Secret Santa

Buddah's Secret Santaberg Spicy Gift Exchange

In the spirit of giving, I present you the Chilehead version of Secret Santa. It is a holiday spicy gift exchange between people in our Facebook group: Chileheads. Well, since the group is now teetering on 4,000 people, I have to put a cap on it. Last month I created a 2nd group called Chileheads 2. It was meant to weed out all the pepper pics and the endless reviews and keep it more about the community that revels in spicy product making, great fiery recipes and festivals that people love to attend. Since this is a new group, I am posting the Secret Santa there for people to see. This will keep the # of people relatively controllable for me to handle. Otherwise, Secret Santaberg might need more lil’ helpers.

3rd Annual Chilehead Secret Santa

Buddah's Secret Santaberg Spicy Gift Exchange

I am getting a very late start on this thing this year. After this past Summer’s turmoil I thought I would just bow out of organizing this again, but after my trip to Houston and New Orleans, I felt a lot of love and wanted to bring some to my great Chilehead community. In the spirit of giving, I present you the Chilehead version of Secret Santa. It is a holiday spicy gift exchange between people in our Facebook group: Chileheads. If you wish to be a part of this, then I ask you to send me an email at albuddah@yahoo.com with the subject line “2013 Secret Santa” and you must include your mailing address. Also so people can see that you are part of it, add your name to the posting in the Facebook group as well as below in the comments. I will pin the Facebook posting to the top of the page for a while.

How does it work? Well, I, with assistance from my little helper, will randomly assign people to a Secret Santa, and you will receive an email before Thanksgiving with the person you are to get a gift for. The gift must be $25 or more(not including shipping and handling), with the more being whatever your little heart desires. I have learned that some people wish to give more, and there is nothing you can do to stop them from doing so. Times are tough for everyone, so if $25 is a bit too high, I am sorry if this will exclude you from this festive display.
