you know..all those hidden (as in the closet and top shelf)
treasures we all have. The previous presents that you privately thought 'what were you thinking when you bought me this?' as you
unwrapped it...those thingies you just haven't gotten rid of?? Well here is your opportunity. You wrap it up, bring it with you
and pick another present (treasure) to unwrap and bring home with you. If you're lucky, its something you can wrap back up next year and use it again!

There is a 30 year old fruit cake floating around my family and one of those big fat candy cane things I gave my brother when I was 13. They get passed each year to another family member, now to nieces, grand nieces and sons of cousins. I love parties like this. Unfortunately I have to work.

Ya, it was done as a joke the first year, in giving it back to the person who made it. They had a good sense of humour about it, and having been in the freezer and shrink wrapped, they just kept up the joke, right down to just crossing the names off and putting the new ones on. It ended sometime ago.

Hope all of you have a great party....I have attended 2 White Elephant parties so far this year....I ended one with a new fishing hat (including hooks, lures, expired license attached)..The 2nd one I ended up with boys size 4 spider man underwear......Have fun! We're thinking of you.
