Christmas Eve at the Tollas family home has become one of the favorite occasions of the Christmas season.

Everyone brings a dessert or yummy snack.

Each year there is what is called a “White Elephant” gift exchange.

Here is the White Elephant.

Each person brings a gift to put under the tree, then each person picks a number out of a hat. Number 1 gets to choose his present from under the tree, number 2 can then either steal the present from number 1 or pick a present from under the tree, and so on.

Number 28 has the choice of 27 previous picks to steal from. As you can imagine, lots of fun and outrage.
