The annual Holiday Season is getting closer! And for the third time in a row, I will be organizing the global Instagram event ‘SECRET SANTÉ’!
From today (November 15) until the 1st of December, you’ll be able to sign up, by getting in touch with me through Instagram! Join, and experience the joy of giving and receiving!
For those who have NO clue what I’m talking about, keep reading:
What is Secret Santé?
It works exactly like a regular ‘Secret Santa’: Everyone who decides to join will (anonymously) get an account assigned, by me, of another person that has joined.
It is then up to you to create ‘a tribute drink’ for that assigned person, and (logically) you will also be receiving a tribute drink yourself, from the person that was assigned your name.
What is expected from you if you join?
1) You have to create 1 (one) drink for the person you are assigned. You’re supposed to keep this a secret for everyone, so when you finally upload your drink, only then is revealed which fellow Drinkstagrammer you had and what drink you made in honor of him/her. Hurrah! Fun times AND surprises!
(You get complete creative freedom to post whatever tipple you want: whether it’s a cocktail or mocktail, a Gin Tonic or a dram of Whisky… Just make sure that in one way or another, you’re honoring the person you got assigned (take a look at their feed, where they’re from, their bio, maybe have a look if they have a blog or whatever)…)
2) You have to use the hashtag #SecretSanté (mind the é!) and both tag and mention the person you’re creating your drink for and me (@ServedBySoberon). This way both your Santé and I are sure to be notified of your submission! (Because of time differences, overnight posts are sometimes overlooked and that would be too bad!).
3) Your drink should be uploaded between the 15th and the 31st of December 2019.
(IF because of any reason you’re having issues creating a drink, or having issues with the timespan, just get in touch with me, I’m following up everything as closely as possible and will make sure there’s a solution for everyone and everything.)
What do you get in return?
Someone else will be creating a custom drink for you as well! This way we’re spreading the Holiday Spirit, proving once again that we’re a fun community that really goes the extra mile for each other.
How do you join?
Get in touch with me via Instagram DM! Do make sure you get a confirmation!! Last year we had 150+ people joining in, let’s see if this year we can reach that again!
Submission can be made UNTIL the 1st of December, so I can get back to everyone as soon as possible (by the 7the at the latest) and everyone can start creating their drinks in time!
And, lastly: It does NOT matter how many followers you have, how active you are or where in the world you are located, this is all about being part of a beautiful global community. Just make sure your account is not set to private.
Cheers to the Holiday Spirit!
Disclaimer: Even though I am ‘the person behind the event’, I am in no way responsible for the creation of the drinks, nor the fact everyone that joins in will end up creating a drink. Though, I promise that if, for whatever reason, your ‘Secret Santé’ fails to upload a drink, I personally will create a drink for you in the aftermath. Because everyone deserves a drink!
