I checked and it was a year ago tomorrow that the thread was started last year. Is there enough interest this year in a Christmas get together? Gift Exchange? While Elephant this year or name drawing. Lets come up with some idea's. Last year was a LOT of fun (Sorry for those who got pooped on though...remind me who your secret santa was and I will make sure they are not included this year!!!) Location this year? Any and all idea's are welcome.

I'm in......true gift exchange...no passing off junk......unless you draw R-32..than anything goes.



Previously I drew names and IM'd everyone with their person. I was thinking we could do that or everyone who wants to participate in the gift part of the get together can bring a gift and drawn #'s once we get there. Then the 1st person opens a gift, then the 2nd person can choose to steal that gift, or open one of thier own. A gift can only be stolen 3 times and then it's frozen, then after everyone has opened a gift the 1st person gets to choose from any of the open gifts that are not frozen.

I like the idea of it being "secret" I'd just rather shop for someone in particular. As for my experience last year, given the source, I should have expected as much. In the end....[markm]these things happen[/markm]
