'Tis the season to celebrate the solstice. Please join us in our home for the the fourth annual C.A.S.H. Solstice Celebration. Bring a gift for the Bad Santa/White Elephant gift exchange. Hors d'Oeuvres will be provided; bring your favorite beverage. Children are welcome.
This year we will be doing a kids gift exchange as well. Here are the details. Adults
Each gift will be placed under the tree downstairs.
At some point in the evening prior to the gift exchange, each gift will receive a 2 part ticket. One half will be taped to the gift, the other half will go into a bucket.
At the time of the gift exchange, each participant will go to the gift that they brought and pull off the ticket. This ticket determines the order in which they select a gift. At each turn, a random ticket will be drawn from the bucket. No one will know who is choosing next until a ticket is drawn and each ticket drawing is considered a turn.
During a turn you have a choice to open a new gift or steal. If stealing a gift then the person who has had a gift stolen can either choose a wrapped gift from under the tree or steal someone else’s. One gift cannot be stolen more than once in a single turn.
At the end, the first turn will have the opportunity to keep their current gift or steal by exchange.
The kid’s gift exchange will be upstairs; I will provide a small tree for kids only. We don’t want any gifts from the kid’s exchange getting mixed up with the adult exchange. The adult exchange will be held immediately follow the kid’s exchange. We will need a parent to volunteers to manage the kid’s gift exchange.
