Christmas is right around the corner, so for a lot of folks, that means the annual Secret Santa party (or maybe more).
It might be at your office or at your aunt’s house, but they’re all pretty much the same, right? Sometimes these parties are a lot of fun and other times…maybe not so much…
How about we Ha Ha Ha while we Ho Ho Ho?
1. Oh, great…
That moment you pull a name for Secret Santa and realize it's somebody lame.

2. Works for everyone.
Nothing says “I love you” like diamonds. Nothing says “I drew you in a workplace Secret Santa” like Starbucks gift cards.

3. When did I do this?
when you're an adult, Secret Santa is online shopping drunk at 3am so you don't remember what you bought when it arrives four days later

I’m such a Secret Santa that you won’t even know if I got you anything.

6. The important stuff.
A colleague has just been fired from work and someone else put their hand up and asked how it would affect the Secret Santa

7. Believe in yourself.
no one wants to do secret santa with me and i assume it’s because they know i’m too good at it and they’ll just feel bad. that’s what i choose to believe.

8. That will be returned.
I'm pretty sure the woman who asked for a gift receipt with her package of gum would be the worst Secret Santa ever.

9. Have to think outside the box.
Secret Santa is infinitely harder when your gift recipient is a dermatologist. There’s no way I’m passing muster with a scented soap or lotion this year

10. Wait, it’s not?
I'm sorry, I thought that a Secret Santa's job is to share all the secrets they know about the person with everyone in the office.

11. Gonna be a great Christmas.
Sorry I got you 28 packages of baby carrots as your Secret Santa gift but there was a sale and it was within our spending limit.

12. The only three reactions.
The three possible reactions to pulling a name out for Secret Santa:
1. "Oh god no"
2. Oh, okay"

13. Keep it to yourself.
HR said I can't complain publicly about my secret Santa gift. They ruin every holiday.

14. Poor guy.
Santa is only Santa because he drew absolutely every child in the world's name in a round of Secret Santa.
— Jenny Jaffe (@jennyjaffe) December 8, 2015
15. HELL YEAH.
Do I want to play Secret Santa this year? You mean do I have gifts I want to re-wrap and get rid of? HELL YEAH.
