How do you play Chinese Christmas gift exchange?

The person who drew number 1 takes a gift from the pile, opens the gift and sits down with the gift in plain sight, generally on her lap. Then "2" then takes a gift, either from the pile or from 1. Then 2 sits down with the gift displayed. If 1's gift was taken, then 1 gets to take another from the pile.

Also question is, why is it called Chinese Christmas gift exchange?

So apparently there's a game calledChinese Christmas” in which people bring unwanted gifts to a party and then try to steal the best games away from each other. Because that's how Chinese people are, yanno. Other people apparently call this the “White Elephant” game.

Likewise, what is a Pollyanna gift exchange? It's a way to give gifts, as you say, to other members of a group, such as fellow workers in an office, other members of a club, or within a large family. The formal term at one time was Pollyanna gift exchange, which turns up a lot in newspapers from about 1947 on, but now seems to be virtually extinct.

Also asked, how do you exchange Christmas gifts?

Make gift-giving take longer (for the kids!)

  1. Try a treasure hunt. Save a few stocking-stuffer gifts (anything small and inexpensive), wrap them up, and hide them throughout the house.
  2. Play a game. Try Finish the Carol or Word Guess; either works for a family or friend gift exchange.
  3. Use a bottle.
