It all started yesterday when students picked a name for our upcoming Secret Santa gift exchange. After strict admonitions to “keep it a secret” because it will be “way more fun” and “more of a mystery”, each student picked a name from the bucket. Once they had all selected a name, there was a split second of intended secrecy, and then BAM – nothing more. Shoulder to shoulder they leaned in and whispered and giggled and connived and consorted until pretty much everyone knew who everyone picked!
Sooooo….our “Not-So-Secret” Santa gift exchange is now in full swing. We will exchange gifts next Friday (December 21st). Gifts should be around $25, but please note that hand-made gifts are also welcome! And please, please, PLEASE talk to your children about the meaning of a SECRET! Their understanding of it might come in handy some day!
Have a great weekend!
