Snupin Santa is a Secret Santa winter holiday fic and art exchange for the Harry Potter fandom's Severus Snape/Remus Lupin pairing. The exchange is archived at The Snupin Santa Holiday Fest Archive and uses Efiction to host stories and art from the first exchange in 2005 to the present (2009). Stories are posted anonymously throughout the month of December, and the reveal post/masterlist is posted in early January.
The exchange consistently has a large number of gifts. In 2005, 37 stories, 9 works of art, and 8 sets of icons and other creations were given. In 2006, there were 77 stories and 21 art pieces exchanged. In 2007, there were 77 stories or combinations of story and art; 20 works of art or icon sets; and one translation. In 2008, there were 65 stories and 12 works of art. The archive to date (November 2009) has a total word-count of 2,374,276 and a total of 77 works of art, representing 121 authors and artists. The conclusion of the canon series has not had a significant negative effect on the popularity of the pairing or the Snupin Santa exchange.
