Christmas is fun! And one event that makes christmas fun for me is our kris kringles! We print our code names in pieces of paper and roll them up.. then each of us have to draw / pick one piece and the name written on the paper we picked will be the "special person" to whom we'll give a christmas gift.. It's funny because first of all, we use codes/nicknames which are really weird so that others will not know our identities. And it's really up to us, what kind of gift we will have to give to our "special person". :-) Also, every week, we decide on the "little somethings" we have to give to our "special persons".. Like for example, this week we have to give something cute, then next week, we have to give something smelly, then next, next week something long and soft..those types. And we really get excited on whatever unexpected things we'll receive every week! Its fun! So, do you also have this kind of fun at work or at home this christmas season? Do share your funny activities! :-)

ya, it is fun. Its one of the things I look forward during Christmas season. I just had something red, yellow and green last week. I'll have to buy more for next week. Its really exciting how you look forward to knowing who you're mysterious manita/manito is. I'm so excited for Christmas party days!

this is really fun! our family have kris kringles too... we draw lots starting on the end of november and every week there is a theme..(something sweet, somthing long, something blue, yucky, useful, the list is endless and hilarious!) Then 2 weeks before christmas, we have this christmas list board where all of us can post our top 3 christmas wishes (we have agreed limits first like below 1000 and not below 500 somthing like that). This gives us an idea of what our "monito/manita" wants as gift. Its really fun and a great way to teach kids that gifts doesnt need to be super expensive, we just give what the other person can be happy about and all in the spirit of fun.

You are right! This kris kringle really gives christmas celebration a twist of fun! Its also like a time to get close with members of the family or if in a work environment, its a way to build camaraderie and rapport with colleagues. :-) Merry Christmas ChipS!
