REASONS WHY WHITE ELEPHANT/ YANKEE SWAP (WHATEVER YOU CALL IT) IS BETTER THAN A SECRET SANTA

  1. it's funner to shop for a gift suitable for any person under a certain price limit
  2. the swapping gets intense. if more than one person really want something things get really heated
  3. you can have last minute invites without feeling totally awful
  4. they do it on the office once and it goes horribly wrong but it's still a great episode so it doesn't even matter
