Why there are rules

Call it what you want, the “Yankee Swap,” “Dirty Santa,” “Grinch Exchange,” or “Thieving Secret Santa.” If the party last night was any indication, “White Elephant” gift exchange is one of the most amusing things you can do with a group of friends. For kicks, we tried it without the “3 steal limit” rule.

A rule, which we then reinstated after a set of hotly contested ceramic bowls were stolen for the eighth time.

I came out with a very classy print that will be the first “not clock” item that will be hanging in my apartment. I’m very happy with it.

One lucky individual went home with a copy of “Naughty College Schoolgirls #12.”

At the moment of that gift’s unveiling, I believe we all discovered the true meaning of Christmas.
