Today we celebrated Christmas with my extended family and played a Kris Kringle game my Mum introduced a few years ago. It’s lots of fun so I thought I’d share it with you.
Everyone has to buy a Kris Kringle gift that costs no more than $3. It has to be wrapped without any tags and then all the gifts are placed on a table…
The way the game works is that the first person picks a present to open. Today it was my aunt, then the person with number 2 picks a present and if they like it they keep it BUT if they don’t like it, they can swap with number 1! Same for number 3, who can either keep their present or take #1 or #2′s and so on…as I was number 15 I could either choose to keep my present or swap with any of the 14 people who had chosen before me!! You want to be one of the last numbers because then you can choose from all the presents!
It’s loads of fun and works really well especially when people choose fun items such as this one, which certainly did the rounds!
It’s a lot fun and a really different and humorous way to do Kris Kringle!!
(Note: nNot all the presents were totally wacky! Others included Guilyan Chocolates, homemade almond chocolates (I got that…YAY!), bottle stoppers, a fake Rolex…at least I assume it was fake ;) and a sudoku book amongst other things…just in case you were wondering!)
