I’ve been to two Yankee Swap parties in my life.
The first was a work party several years ago. I had an early number, grabbed the gift I wanted — a hot chocolate set and mugs — and then watched everyone do what I knew they would do, which was spend the rest of the party swapping the booze among themselves.
There may have also been one other gift that was passed around a lot.
And that was fine with me, since I don’t drink.
