The land goes white.
My dear little friends,
'Tis time we do our right,
And in return will you all receive my gift.
I cannot believe that one year has already passed by so swiftly after I’d played the wondrous game, ‘Secret Santa’ which is truly a great souvenir for Christmas. And it all feels like it happened just yesterday. I can still remember the picture I was choosing for this post and the tiny poem I wrote for it too.
Time really does fly when you are enjoying your life.
And I am really glad that I played that game. Last year I got a gift from Deeksha. It was a laughing Buddha and a pen. Seriously. I couldn’t believe that she gave me that. And she started to act all goody goody about the gift.
But still I had to be content with what I’d received because after all it was Christmas. A time for joy.
I played it again this year too. It was twice the fun and a bit of a menace too. Thanks to Deesksha, once again.
She got the name of the one girl she hated the most in the class (because of a fight she had with her long ago) and she was like, “I’m sorry people but can we exchange the chits again. I don’t want to give this person the gift. Please let us exchange”. I wanted to tell her then and there that – “No way! You have to give that person the gift. That is the essence of Christmas. To forgive and forget.”
But let’s just say that she is one hot-headed stubborn… girl. She didn’t pay any heed to my advice and I felt like shit for wasting my time over her. So I angrily went over and re-made the chits.
I still hate her though.
And so we played again and I was so happy with the person I got!
It was Ujjwala. My bench mate. I promised myself to get her something really cute and sweet that will make her smile till galaxy’s reach and have the best gift ever this Christmas.
I hope I did though. I got her a cute white purse for her Blackberry and a Cinnamoroll plushie.
I really hope that she’ll like it! I’ll keep in her bag silently tomorrow! :D
