Christmas Party #1

My first holiday party of the season was tonight. 17 of us (2 missing in the photo) met for dinner and a white elephant gift exchange. I'm usually the naughty one who steals peoples presents. I've probably stolen presents from every member of this stamp club at one time or another. This year I decided to refresh my karma, so to speak, and chose from the pile of unopened gifts rather than steal from my friends. And I got a great gift of Asian papers and kimono cards that I'll use in lots of projects. This fun little party brought me a little closer to feeling the Christmas spirit.

Nice way to kick off the holiday season. We have a similiar exchange using ornaments, it gets ugly, very ugly.

I've played this once, and "a good time was had by all."

That's a big group of friends. How long does it take with that many people?

I don't think I have 7 friends let alone 17....you are friendship blessed.

It sounds like you got a deal with your chose, Mad. Better than most White Elephant gifts I've ever received.
