What Is A Secret Santa Gift Exchange?

It has many different names.  It comes from The White Elephant Exchange.  What is it?  It’s where amusing and impractical gifts are exchanged during Christmas. The goal of a white elephant gift exchange is to entertain party-goers rather than to gain a genuinely valuable or highly sought-after item.

The term white elephant refers to an extravagant, impractical gift that cannot be easily disposed of. The phrase is said to come from the historic practice of the King of Siam (now Thailand) giving rare albino elephants to courtiers who had displeased him so that they might be ruined by the animals’ upkeep costs.  Therefore, No One wanted it!

Depending on your budget and creativity you could have some real fun with this.   Now, remember that if you are doing this at a work party, BE CAREFUL.  LOL.  This could be worse than being the person who drank too much at the party!
