I love wrapping presents

Christmas present
I couldn't stay away, could I? I love wrapping gifts and this is one that I'm taking to my in-laws tomorrow where we play the Dirty Santa game. If you want to play, you bring a gift worth $25. All the gifts go into a pile and you count them. You then take slips of paper and number them, then put them into a bowl. Everyone who has brought a gift now chooses a number. Number one goes first and they choose a gift from the pile. Then it's number two's turn. They can either choose the already opened gift from number one, or choose another. It goes on this way until the last person goes. There are rules to follow, like not choosing your own gift until it's opened, and that a gift can be stolen no more than three times, and maybe there's another rule too but I forget. It's fun and now the grown children are participating, which makes it all the more interesting.
I want to thank you all for visiting me here on my Picture A Day site. I love reading your comments and sharing my photography with you. Have a beautiful holiday.

That's exactly what we do for Hanukkah.. except we're cheaper.. our roof is $5.. and it's supposed to be a tacky/humorous gift. :) Your wrapping is beautiful. Have a great Christmas, Kate. :)

How about coming over and wrapping my gifts? I always have the best intentions, but somehow they end up in knots.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
