What is Secret Santa?
Playing Secret Santa is a great office morale booster. It helps create a festive holiday atmosphere without excluding anyone. Though the specifics vary from office to office, the essence of the game remains the same: gift givers are randomly assigned to recipients. The challenge is to get something suitable for someone you might not know very well.
