Awww. This was touching and moving. I love true stories, especially good ones. And, this was really good! Thanks.

God bless~
I enjoyed your story. It sounds as though your family have an hilarious time! My extended family tried something like this once but we bought serious gifts,not silly gifts, and unfortunately one person delighted in saying she didn't want each choice, upsetting the people who had carefully chosen them. So, we reverted to the Kris Kringle with no swaps. Obviously the trick is to have silly gifts, or maybe a less touchy family! You've done a great job with this.
I have played variations of this game at office parties and various Christmas dinners but I like your family version much better and think next year we must start a similar tradition. Thank you for the suggestion in your well written and funny entry.
You are a gifted story-teller, my friend. Makes me want to crash your Christmas party and join in The Game!
