What fun holiday things do you do at work?
BLOG:  Secret Santa lives at WISC
We started giving out Secret Santa gifts at work.

We are just getting started on our Secret Santa month here at WISC-TV.  What do you guys do for the holidays at your office?

Susan Siman always coordinates a cookie exchange in December.  I’m not sure how it works yet but I know people end up with a boatload of cookies.

We just started Secret Santa.  Here’s how we do it.  We spend $5 a week on our person starting in December, and then the last week, we can spend $10.  Now, some people will overachieve, but I’m a big believer of trying to stretch my dollar.

The funniest things I don’t have pictures of, which include our grumpy photographer Lance, getting a DVD of the movie, Grumpy Old Men.  Hilarious.  We tried to take a picture of him, but it coincidentally didn’t take.

Eric Franke got a Sponge Bob mug set with hot chocolate.  He’s always mimicking Sponge Bob, so it’s fitting – it’s because he has two young boys.  They’ll love the mugs.

My secret Santa knows me VERY well apparently.  Got me two HUGE bottles of Frank’s Red Hot sauce.  I can’t say how much that’s appreciated because I just ran out!  So, this was a pretty cool surprise.  

Watch Eric open his gift

Anyway, I need a good idea for a finale.  Got any ideas on how we should reveal ourselves to one another?  We have nearly another month!  It has been very comical to hear people guess out loud who theirs is… and to hear things like, “My secret Santa gets me.”  

Love the mood here right now!  Seriously, what do you do?  I’d love to hear your ideas for the office.  @MichelleLiTV
