I love Secret Santa, but not when people can’t keep it a secret. A lot of different places do it…the office, families and even Reddit.com.
The principle is this;
You put the names of all participants in a box, hat, whatever, set a price limit and have everyone fill a paper with their name, likes, dislikes,etc…then draw a name, individually. They cannot get themselves. Give them a date for the reveal.
Reddit.com has the largest Secret Santa in the world on the internet. You sign up for Reddits.gifts. Fill out a form, wait till Matching Day when you are randomly matched, get your gift sent out by a specific date and post a picture of whatever you receive. Reddit has Secret Santa Exchanges every few months with different themes like Cookbooks,Autos,80’s,Plants,etc… There is bound to be something you are interested in. But, the Christmas one is the largest with the most participants.
Forgive me since this was more factual then fun. I picked up Pumas’ ashes today and am a bit stressed so a Migraine has started. Going down with pain meds in a few. I put the box on the shelf in the bag for now as, I just can’t deal. Maybe, when I move, I will find somewhere to put her.
Yes, my mind is back on that despite not doing well at saving money. The house… okay, trailer…is being painted outside, next month.
