Secret Santa Game with a Twist

Secret Santa Game with a Twist

Our Christmas family tradition includes this twist to the popular Secret Santa gift exchange game.

Usually we are all together at thanksgiving, so we do a one person Christmas gift exchange draw.

All adults who want to participate agree to one rule. On Christmas day, when it is your time to name your secret family member you should try to be loving, amusing, and yet "roast" your person a little.

One can also deliver a tall tale about the gift, like you went all the way to China to get it, because Walmart was out of it.

We have a month to prepare these little speeches and they are usually very funny. Plus the one person gift exchange is so popular that our children say they cannot wait until they are old enough to participate.
