Make sure your cubbie is organized enough so that your Secret Santa/Hanukkah Harry/Kwanzaa Kevin/Bodhi Ben/Ramadan Ralphie/Yule Yorick/Divali Dennis can get your treats to you if you are participating! Remember, you need to have something for your recipient on Tuesday and on Friday this week. [See the handout on the right if you need more information!] PLEASE don't forget—it's not fair to take someone's name and then leave him/her gift-less.
