Join us to enjoy sweet treats and the fun game of Thieving Santa. In the game, each guest brings a gift wrapped white elephant or something unique or funny or something nice they want to part with (nothing offensive or too expensive). Each guest picks a number from a bag with numbers equal to the number of guests. After the party has been going a while, the person with #1 picks a gift and unwraps it. Next, the person with #2 can either choose to steal #1's gift or choose a new gift and unwrap it. The game continues with each guest stealing a gift already opened or choosing a new gift and unwrapping it. A gift can be stolen only three times before it is declared claimed.
Guests are invited to bring a sweet to share.
