Secret Santa Is Part Of Holiday Fun

PALO ALTO, California, U.S.A. – Though most American high schoolers don’t believe in Santa Claus anymore, and some don’t celebrate the Christmas holiday itself, gift-giving still remains an essential part of the holiday spirit.

In December, Secret Santa gift exchanges are popular among friend groups and those in extra-curricular activities.

Everyone in the group is assigned to someone else, and without that person knowing, gets him or her a present.

Here is everything that I’ve gotten: a dress, body mist, an infinity scarf, a shoulder bag and a skater skirt. Not pictured: chocolate.
