The Big Secret Santa Wrap Up Post

For the most part I think this year went a lot smoother than last. As far as I know everyone received a package.  Below I've listed everyone involved and added a link to the blog post or Tweet acknowledging the package.  If you don't have a link that means I couldn't find any type of formal acknowledgment. If I left someone out or didn't properly link the post let me know.  If you don't plan on doing anything formal please let the sender know you got the package.

My hope is that by adding links you will find some new blogs.  If you have any ideas on how to keep improving on Secret Santa either leave a comment or send me an email.  Thanks so much for joining in this year.  I plan on bringing it back in 2018...
