I vividly remember playing Secret Santa as a young adult. It might have been one of the best “grown-up” Christmases ever. It can be played with any medium to large sized group of people - co-workers, a youth group, scout troop, sports team, etc.
For those of you who have never even heard of Secret Santa, it’s basically a fun way to celebrate the holidays with a group of friends or acquiantances without anyone spending a lot of money on gifts. In fact, the intention of Secret Santa, as I was taught anyway, was to remove all feelings of obligation for buying everyone a present. The rules state you are only allowed to gift 1 person.
When I played, my co-workers were an amazingly creative team of writers and artists. Consequently, our Secret Santa was off the hook, which I’ll explain later.
