Secret Santa Ideas Chat

Maureen and I have been talking about our chat topics and we are happy to let you know about our first June Chat. The first chat will be Sunday June 1st at 2:00 EST (1:00 CST) in the USA and this will be at 7:00pm in the UK area....I hope.... if I have this figured correctly!!!
We will be meeting again on that same day at 8:00pm EST (7:00pm CST) for the USA folks who might not be able to make the early afternoon one. Each chat will last 30 minutes but you are free to remain for general chat afterwards. Please feel free to join us for one or both...in The Christmas Cupboard Chat room!!

Secret Santa Ideas Chat:
This chat will focus on the Secret Santa tradition many use at the work place or in different groups. Many of the ideas however could work for children’s parties or little token gifts for family and friends. To help us get the most out of this chat experience please have at least two ideas you can share. But if you don’t….come anyway…the more the merrier!!! Also this is a structured chat so topic rules apply. I'll post the rules below. It’s going to be great fun.
For those attending chat, I will be providing you with two links where you can view and print…some labels I have created for Secret Santa Treats and Booing Treats….but only if you are at chat…they will be posted during chat!!!

Theme Chat Topic Rules:
Our themed chats are a time to share ideas and talk about specific topics so we ask that:

1. You stick to the topic!!!
2. Allow wait time after questions to give all of the chatters time to respond. Sometimes it helps to type your answer but not send it until you see what new comments have been added while you typed!
3. Be courteous and respectful.
4. Try to be in the chat room a little before the chat is scheduled to begin.
5. Themed chat will last 30 minutes after which you may remain in the room for visiting and general chat.

We hope to see you at the chats!!!

Excellent - looking forward to hearing tried and tested ideas and people thinking out of the box as well!!

C'mon, UK and European members (you know who you are) this is the perfect opportunity to get together with your fellow Festive fanatics (alliteration at 9.50pm - wow!) and have a good old natter whilst actually picking up some great tips.

7pm Sunday June 1st - in the Christmas Cupboard - Secret Santa!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!!!!!

I thought it said 7 am for my time. LOL I guess I can't read.

Another question is where is the Christmas Cupboard Chat? I click on the chat link above (it doesn't say Christmas Cupboard) and it doesn't let me in. Says I'm invalid.
