The Spirit of Taking

Yesterday, at a team lunch a gift grab was organised. These may exist in the UK, but I have only heard of them since moving to the US. Everybody brought a gift, costing no more than $5. These were placed in the centre of the table and everyone drew a number. The person with number one choose one of the gifts and unwrapped it. Subsequent people could either select a gift from the middle or grab a previously opened gift. Once a gift has been grabbed three times it is safe. There is no denying that this was great fun, it does not seem part of the generally perceived spirit of the season to take things from your fellow men.
