Every time it starts to get cold... I think about Santa thing. I can't believe it's almost that time of year again!

>1 mellymel171328: Cue the SantaThing hype train! This year has gone by fast. Get your book-picking mittens ready!

Official statement: I can't announce dates just yet, but don't worry, they're coming. :)

>2 lorannen: already so excited. Let me know when you can so I can prepare the yearly Donation thread. :)

Why do people always want to rush the end of the year? There is at least one holiday (two if in the US) between now and December. Can't we just get through one holiday at a time?

>5 gilroy: I don't feel that I am rushing it though. :) I am just getting excited to start Santa Thing (a book exchange LibraryThing does every year!) It is starting next month! The dates aren't out just yet but I look forward to it every year.

So I am not really thinking about holidays just the event. :)

>6 mellymel171328: It's called Santathing. This suggests it's related to the later holiday of the year. That's rushing it past Halloween (and in the US Thanksgiving.)

I'm well aware of WHAT it is, thank you.

>8 gilroy: I'm very sorry if I have offended you. :( It was not my intention and I just wasn't sure if you had heard of it. I also mention it a little early to help people to remember to budget for it. I have to budget for everything and there was a couple of the earlier years that I forgot.

Again, sorry that i offended you.

Gilroy, did you know it takes zero effort to ignore something you don’t like and not crap on someone’s day?

Out 20, 2017, 8:16 am

>9 mellymel171328: Well, it would be more helpful if you said "Hey, just a reminder to start building for budgets" somewhere in the post. It wasn't made obvious.

>10 AngelaB86: You're amusing.

>11 gilroy: I felt it didn't have to be. I feel personally attacked for showing excitement for something that I immensely enjoy every year. What I don't understand? Is why I'm being ashamed for just being happy? I haven't forgotten about the other holidays at all. I have two children that I enjoy it with but I am still excited about SantaThing.

>12 mellymel171328: My initial comment wasn't directed toward you, but a general statement. If you took it as a personal attach, my apologies.

It certainly has to start before US Thanksgiving to give time for sign up, chosing books, ordering, and delivery all before Christmas.

Out 21, 2017, 1:39 am

When is US Thanksgiving?

Out 21, 2017, 8:51 am

November 23rd

>15 guido47: It's the fourth Thursday of November, so the exact date varies a little bit.

>2 lorannen: Woohoo!!! Thanks for touching base on this thread. SantaThing usually debuts a week or so after my birthday, so it's like an extra birthday present and winter holiday gift wrapped in one.

>5 gilroy: This was a rude and completely unnecessary comment, and you know it. The OP didn't need to justify it as about 'budgeting' for it to be a useful post for those of us who eagerly watch LT this time of year for SantaThing announcements. Not every post on Talk is meant for every LT user. Push the red X the next time, dude, instead of derailing what should have been happy thread.

And forgive me for being annoyed that every year in the 2 months before xmas bug fixing and new development grinds to a halt as staff attention is focused on SantaThing. I know that many people like it and I have long since gotten my money's worth out of LT, but given the lack of new development in core LT features (Add Books redo comes to mind) in the last couple of years, it's still annoying.

I've started watching and waiting....
I wish I had emoji available on my laptop to show my excitement over this... hold on...

Yep, even though it's (gasp) not Thanksgiving yet!
(which I also LOVE ;))

>20 avanders: It is hard not to love Thanksgiving.... it's just so yummy! :)
