Holiday Hoo-Rah

After we picked up Andy from the airport, we went to Allison's house for the NASC Holiday Hoo-Rah.  This is one of my favorite NASC staff events that happens during our year.

We spent a good amount of time just mingling:

Shortly after we arrived, it was time for the white elephant gift exchange.

There is a $15 spending limit.  Each year, there is a pretty good mix of nice gifts/gift cards and things that were found lying around the house.

It begins with each person drawing a number.  The first person opens a gift.  The second person can either steal the first person's gift or open a new gift, and so on.  If a gift is stolen from you, you can either steal from somebody else or open a new gift.  The game continues until all gifts have been opened.

Here are some staffers opening their gifts:

Even when you're not opening, it's fun to watch others' reactions:

After gifts were opened, many people left.  A few of us stuck around to play games... or to play with our new gifts!

Another great Hoo-Rah for the books!
