FYI to all who signed up – here are the rules!
You bring a gift worth between 50 and 80RMB. You may write a clue on your gift if you like…Place your gift by the tree any time on Friday AND then write your name on a slip and put it in the box beside the tree. At 4:15 we draw one name from the box. (person ONE) Person ONE selects a gift from the tree and opens it in front of everyone. We draw the next name out of the box. Person TWO can “steal” person ONE’s opened gift and person ONE has to select again from the tree… OR person TWO can select a gift from the tree and open it. We draw person THREE’s name. Person THREE can “steal” person ONE’s gift or person TWO’s gift and that person chooses again from the tree…. OR person THREE can choose a gift from under the tree.
If someone takes your gift, you can’t take someone else’s, you need to choose from the tree! And so on until all names are called and then person ONE gets the last go – person ONE can take a gift from ANYONE – if they choose to. That person chooses from under the tree and the game is over!
