You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why Secret Santa is coming to office and holiday house parties near you. The King of the Christmas gift exchange, Secret Santa, is a beloved tradition that has taken the holiday celebrations by a storm. The fun part about this little tradition is not only the gifts but also the suspense and mystery of guessing who was your secret Santa and who got the secret Santa gift idea. This classic game is simple and is supposed to be played with a group of people.
Everyone draws a name to become someone’s secret Santa. They are then supposed to buy a gift for their chosen giftee and on the day of the big reveal place it under the Christmas tree. The giftee then has to guess who their secret Santa is before it is finally revealed. If you are wondering who to thank for this amusing game, then here is a piece of trivia for you which you can use at Christmas parties to impress people. The roots of this quintessential tradition can be traced back to the Scandinavian tradition of Juklapp or “knocking Christmas”. Like the name suggests it involves knocking on someone’s door and throwing a gift inside when it opens and then running away. Luckily, the tradition has now evolved to a much simpler gift exchange.
However, that is not to say that the actual gift selecting process is easy. Choosing a gift for your coworkers or even your friends and family members can be a difficult and stressful ordeal.
