Secret Santa Birthdays
It's just like Secret Santa except more fun and occurs more than once a year. At the end of our January full staff meeting, our Secret Birthday Santa Santa (a.k.a. Theresa Hubbard) asks all staff members to draw a month out of the yellow fire warden hat. The number of monthly entries corresponds to the number of staff who celebrate their birthday during that month (i.e., five staff birthdays in April, five slips of paper with April in the hat). For each staff member, santas can spend $50 for each staff member with a birthday that month (i.e., five birthdays in April, $250 budget). They sleuth during the month trying to uncover what the birthday people like, then they plan a celebration that incorporates those items... or doesn't. Festivities and frivolity ensue.
