Hello again, everyone! :wave:

I want to remind you that time is really running out to sign-up for this year's Summer Secret Santa 2018 event! I will stop accepting anymore wishlist submissions this coming Sunday night at 9 PM Pacific Daylight Time.

It only takes a few minutes to write down what you would like for the Summer event this year. If you have completed your wishlist, but if I haven't seen it year, please don't worry as I will get to it as soon as possible. :)

At the time of this update, 319 participants have signed up for this event and 56 participants have signed up this month so far.


Be warned that when the countdown timer above reaches zero and the final red light turns black, sign-ups will close! If you don't submit your wishlist by the deadline, you will not have the opportunity to participate in this year's Summer Secret Santa 2018 event!

You will not be reminded again after this journal entry.

The day after sign-ups close, we are going to be going over the list of participants (on two pages) who signed up for the Summer Secret Santa 2018 event and organise the pairs at random. One all of that is done, we are going to work as a team sending notes with the complete details of which receiving participant (partner) you will be assigned to do the drawing for.

If you don't have time to participate in this event, you will have the opportunity to participate in the Secret Santa 2018 event. Sign-ups for the event will start on Monday, August 27, 2018 - that's 98 days out.

Thank you for understanding! :hug::heart:

If you got any questions or concerns regarding this journal entry or the pairings of this year's Secret Santa event, please comment on this journal entry below.

:star: GENERAL QUESTIONS :star:
1. What is Secret Santa?
According to Wikipedia, Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift.
It it an event where deviants like you draw for one another and get art back in return. Wishlists are anonymous until the day arrives to hand out the gifts and send your gift and receive yours exclusively from Secret Santa! At the Secret Santa Network, we're ready to handle as many gifts that we can possibly get though!
Summer Secret Santa is very similar to the Secret Santa event held on Christmas, but it is instead held in the late Spring and Summer with sign-ups starting in the late Winter. The Summer SS event usually focuses on the Summer, hot weather as

Keep up the awesome work, everyone! Especially with the changes made this year, we need more participants in this event throughout the sign-up period! :D
Hello, everyone! :wave:
The Secret Santa 2017 was once again, the greatest event ever to be held on dA! With over 600 participants in the event, it was a huge success! :w00t::heart:
And now, with 302 days until Christmas 2018, it's now time to move away from the Secret Santa 2017 event. As the daylight is slowly starting to get longer and the weather starting to get warmer, NOW IS THE TIME to start thinking about being a Summer Secret Santa for Summer 2018! :dance:
Existing participants from past events, including Secret Santa 2017 are eligible to participate in the Summer Secret Santa 2018 event. Participants who dropped out from the previous event or are b

Thank you for the explanation! Two questions: Am I allowed to request a character from anime/manga/videogame instead of an OC? and what's the deadline for submitting a completed artwork?
