I recieved a package at my PO Box. I think it might be my #CreepyChristmas #CreepyChristmas Swap.
If you sent me a package, and the tracking ends in ...9856.....I got it. I am just not picking it up until tomorrow and I wanted you to know it arrived.
If it‘s not from my partner.....ha, nevermind.

I have delayed this post as long I can. I didn‘t want to admit defeat, but now the hour is late. This is the time of evening when you, My Match, should be reading your book and eating chocolate.

I am a flood of sad emotion, Ms. Sarah ( @TheAromaofBooks ) as I inform you that is does not look like your package will be there today. It‘s in your state, possibly close to your city...just not close enough.👇🏽

Nute I hope that it will find its way to your home soon. I wish you a Happy Jolabokaflod Day still... 13mo
TheAromaofBooks No worries!!! I know the mail has been quite crazy lately. Presents are still presents whenever they arrive so I'm still quite excited!!! Thank you for sending it to me & I'll be on the lookout for its arrival. Thank you for letting me know - Merry Christmas!!! 13mo
KatieDid927 @TheAromaofBooks I say the delayed packages just stretches out Christmas even longer! 😇 13mo

Nute @dandy.punk That‘s the truth! Thanks for making me feel better.😊 13mo
lynneamch Remember that December 25th is the first day of Christmas. There are still 11 more days of Christmas to go! That's what I'm reminding my relatives whose packages have been "in transit" for the past week. Merry Merry! 13mo
Nute @lynneamch This is why I love my Litsy family, Ms. Lynnea, we never let a fellow Litten stumble down a rocky pathway alone. Thank you so much for the reach-out and the words of support! Merry Christmas!💚 13mo
LibrarianRyan @lynneamch I read a really sweet thing from a mom on Twitter. She is sending her kids Santa letters about his elf who had an issue with the present delivery but that he would personally send his elf twinkle to hand deliver it when it was fixed. It was cute. Also helps for anxious kids thinking Santa forgot them. 13mo

I have been trying to believe in the impossible...a timely delivery by the USPS. I have been trying not to develop a new bad habit...every hour on the hour perform tracking check, even in the middle of the night. I have been trying to remain calm...wondering if my match would realize it‘s not there. Hmm...that‘s far fetched. A book-lover always notices missing books!
It better arrive tomorrow!😬

Scochrane26 I have almost memorized the tracking number for the ones I sent out. 13mo
Nute @Scochrane26 🤣I hear you! That is so understood! 13mo
BookNAround Fingers crossed it gets there for you. My last one finally arrived at its destination today. It was a nail biter for a long time though. 13mo
See All 21 Comments
Palimpsest I can relate. I sent a package to the U.K. three weeks ago and I‘m still waiting for her to receive it. It‘s already late. Now I‘m just nervous she‘s not going to get it at all. 13mo
Nute @BookNAround Yes! Any day now I‘ll be down to the nail cuticle!😳 13mo
Nute @Palimpsest That is my worst fear...not just late mail, but misplaced mail that is eventually fated as lost mail. Good grief!🙁 13mo
MidnightBookGirl I was honestly surprised mine arrived, and I really had made peace that there was a chance it wouldn't be on time because of the mail. I think most people know, and certainly won't blame the sender. Also... if the book comes after the 24th, it's just going to make for an awesome day when it does show up- a great book and a treat? That would make any day feel like it's Jolabokaflod! 13mo
Hooked_on_books You‘re not alone! I‘ve become a psychotic tracking maniac! Plus, mine now says it‘s been delivered, but no post by my recipient, so I don‘t know what that means. I may be bald by the end of this. 13mo
Leftcoastzen It‘s a mess , a friend sent a gift in a flat padded envelope 2 day USPS from Chicago to Phoenix on Nov 17th , it got to me today.They seem to get bogged down in distribution centers for days! Most often tracking is paused or stops entirely. 13mo
Crazeedi My tracking numbers pop up on the site without me entering them! Thank goodness my swaps all arrived 13mo
Amandajoy We could start a support group. One of mine for my elf swap is stuck in transit (I mailed it on the 12th!) and another present I ordered for my husband looks like it won‘t be here by Christmas. I think it‘s stuck in Switzerland, we live in Nebraska and I had no idea it was coming from overseas. But it sounds like everyone will be getting presents well into the new year! 🙁 13mo
TheAromaofBooks It took 8 days for my package to get from here to our nearest hub... 20 miles away 😑 I mailed it 12/4 & it still hasn't arrived to its destination in Colorado... I'm going with the “this will just extend the Christmas season“ theory 😂 13mo
Liz_M This all sounds too, too familiar 😖 😭 I mailed my book on Dec. 7th from Brooklyn and it got stuck in NJ for over a week. It finally made it to the correct state on Dec 16th, but has been “currently in transit to the next facility“ ever since. 😤 13mo
Nute @MidnightBookGirl That is true...any day that mail is delivery of a book and a treat is an awesome day, but I am so disappointed by this turn of events. It‘s the first Litsy Swap in which I have participated and I feel like I let down my end of the bargain even with mailing more than two weeks in advance of the opening date.☹️ 13mo
Nute @Hooked_on_books Yes! This is a guaranteed way to lose hair!😂 13mo
Nute @Leftcoastzen That is a month of mail time!😐 Good grief! 13mo
Nute @Crazeedi I can‘t even imagine the relief that I am going to feel when this package is delivered and my match acknowledges receipt. Oh, happy day!😆 13mo
Nute @Amandajoy I am truly in need of a Swap-Stuck-In-Transit Support Group!When‘s our first meeting? I need immediate comforting!😆 13mo
Nute @TheAromaofBooks Eight days to go 20 miles. December 4th mail out and still no receipt on December 23rd. That data does not compute. I am holding out hope to the very last second. I wonder how late mail will be delivered on Christmas Eve? Keeping it positive...kudos to Postal Service employees...it‘s definitely an overwhelmed system right now and no doubt that they are working really hard. Here‘s to the Extended Christmas Season!🎉💚🎄😁 13mo
Nute @Liz_M That is the update message attached to my package as well, “Currently in transit to the next facility.” Right now I am celebrating that it is finally in the same state where it‘s intended recipient resides. Yay, that!😆 13mo
Crazeedi @Nute everyone understands the issues this year, so dont stress too much. As long as everyone knows things are in the mail, that's all we control. I participated in a swap earlier this year where my partner never mailed my package. Fortunately the ones in charge stepped up and sent a couple prizes so I go something. Your swap leadervknows you sent 13mo

It has arrived! I‘m so excited! How will I ever be able to wait until December 24th? It will have to be hidden or perhaps taken over to the neighbor‘s house. Someone will have to vow an oath not to give it to me even if I plead or try to bribe. Oh, my!😳
It looks so festive. Thank you @Booksnchill 💚🎄

Booksnchill I have been getting anxious as the mail is so slow right now- so pleased it arrived!!!🎄☃️🥂 (edited) 13mo
Nute @Booksnchill I know! I hope that the package that I sent is received in time. It really does create a feeling of pins and needles as you wait to hear word. Thanks again for the holiday cheer!😊 13mo
Reggie I say give in and open it right now. Just take a picture of it and post it on the date. Just don‘t eat the chocolate first. Pics without the candies are dead giveaways you opened it early. If you open yours early I‘ll open my creepy Christmas early. 😈 😜 13mo
Nute @Reggie You, my friend, understand me. We totally get each other! I say it‘s a deal, but we just played our trump hand by putting the details out in a public arena.🥴 Next time, we must scheme covertly!😝 13mo

Stopped by the Post Office on the way home from work to get this package finally on its way! From start to finish this has been fun. Trying to figure out which book to send. Trying not to eat the chocolate in the middle of the night. And...incredibly enough, not having to wait in a long line at the Post Office...business handled within five minutes. Yay!

Oh, Hello, Match! I see YOU!💕

shanaymayer Love the idea of jolabokaflod! Started this with my boys last year! 13mo
Nute @shanaymayer Peculiar that I had never heard of this until last year (another cool thing about the Litsy Community - exposure to so many cultural traditions tied into literature and the reading of books). Very nice that you have shared it with your children. I love it!💕 13mo

LeahBergen Ooo, you‘re speedy! 14mo
candority @LeahBergen I want to avoid stores as much as possible as we get closer to the holidays, so once I had all my matches I went out and bought everything I needed! 14mo
CaroPi A couple of years ago a person from Canada got me in a swap and she send me some of that tea brand. Was for cold tea. So far is the best cold tea I ever had! 14mo
candority @CaroPi Oh, do you remember what kind/flavour it was? They have a lot of good iced teas! Unfortunately, most of the physical stores closed because of Covid, but they are still operating online! 14mo
CaroPi @candority unfortunately not. I even found the picture in List but the quality was not great 😒 14mo
DebinHawaii @candority I sent you an email last night. I guess I erased my swap match details accidentally. I am hoping to send the box out tomorrow so if there is any way you can resend, I would truly appreciate it.🙏🏼 13mo
candority @DebinHawaii Oh, I‘m so sorry! I didn‘t check my email today. I‘ll send it to you right now! 13mo
DebinHawaii @candority No worries! It‘s my bad for losing it. I was attempting to clean out emails & apparently took it too far! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Thank you! 13mo
candority @DebinHawaii I‘ve done that before too, so I totally understand. I just sent you the email 😊 13mo

So—I like all of the above. 😁😁 I like coffee/peppermint/old book scents and really anything coffee, book or pop culture related. Blue is my favorite color.

What swaps are open right now?

I saw some announcements in my feed last week but I fell down the rabbit hole of closing on my house (SOLD!) & now I can‘t find them.

Beatlefan129 I signed up for the Jolabokaflod swap and the Little Christmas swap. I think they‘re both still open 1y
AmyG @candority has a Best of 2020 swap....open for a couple more days, I think. (edited) 1y
REPollock Thank you @Beatlefan129 The #jolabokaflod swap was the one I wanted to sign up for and I couldn‘t remember how it was spelled! 1y

candority @AmyG Thanks for tagging me! @REPollock Sign ups for the #Bestof2020Swap are open until tomorrow (November 15). For this swap, you create a package of some of your favourite books and goodies from the year to send to another person! No pressure to sign up, just wanted to share some info! 1y
REPollock @candority thank you! 🎄🎅🏻☃️ 1y
BarbaraBB You sold your house? Exciting! Have you found another one yet? 14mo
REPollock @BarbaraBB I moved in with my partner many months ago, pre-pandemic. I had had planned to put it on the market back in May but there were so many delays because of lockdown restrictions. My county was hard-hit early on and there were repairs that couldn‘t happen because a big enough crew couldn‘t safely work together indoors. So glad to finally be done with it! 14mo
BarbaraBB I can imagine! Especially in these times with enough stress already! 14mo
