All I want for Xmas is…

Posted on

17 days 12 hours 22 minutes 13 seconds before Santa comes visiting. Admit it. You’ve also been counting.

Meanwhile, before the big man arrives, there’s this other person that has a gift with your name on it. You’ve all already been randomly handpicked by your peers to participate in the annual SCAN Secret Santa event that will be held on 11/12/2017 at the Flam’s. I hold all the names in a classified document that I must refrain from disclosing to you. All I can say is, some of you are in for quite a surprise.

Personally, I’m really looking forward to Secret Santa as they always trigger different emotions in people—sometimes unexpected ones! These feelings all depend on the gift one gets.

Here are the different types of people you get

1. The “sick” guy

As a person that really likes receiving presents, I really hope this guy isn’t your secret santa. As presents are being exchanged, Ambre takes out her SCAN contact book and gives him a call. He claims he’s sick even though we all saw him in class in the morning perfectly fine. What he meant was: I forgot your present.

2. The passive aggressive person.

This person clearly didn’t appreciate the gift given to her. I say her because girls are born naturals when it comes to passive aggressiveness. If you’re the secret santa of this individual you better be prepared for some heavy eye rolling and eye fixing on you throughout the night.

3. The clueless dude.

What can I say to make you feel better? Well, at least he gave you something! It doesn’t matter whether or not he knew your name or who you were. At least those unisex socks look comfy for the winter.

4. The “I bought you chocolate” individual

Chocolate. Appreciated by the majority of people. However, it is a clear sign of lack of imagination and creativity. You know perfectly well that they gave up after 30 seconds brainstorming what to get you. It’s too bad they didn’t know I was lactose intolerant.

5. The showoff

I just want this guy to shut it about how much better his gift is compared to mine. His comments actually hurt my feelings because deep down I’m secretly jealous. I comfort myself with the fact that I’m not the only one in the room that feels this way.

6. The gossip

Thank you. I didn’t try so hard avoiding rumors and covering my ears whenever people were talking about secret santa just to have the name of MY secret santa screamed in my face as soon as I opened the Flam’s door. What’s that? The person my gift is for knows it’s me? Great.

7. The one who’s here just for the pizza

This special individual is one you’ve only spoken to twice in your life and both times it was because you were assigned a group project together. First to order and first to leave, he has no time to waste talking to other human beings and prefers the more than sufficient company of pizza.

8. The perfect present human

Most likely your best friend. You’re lucky he/she picked out your name and thank God you mentioned you wanted that new iPhone X to him/her beforehand. The present’s not an iPhone but it’s just as perfect. It’s too good to be true. A Donald Trump wig and cap #lapetrellade. Luv it.

9. “Antoine va nous danser…”

Enough said. *proceeds undressing*



Hopefully you’ll be one of the nicer options that day. Nevertheless, 100 SCAN students in a restaurant will be anything but boring and uneventful. I’ll see you there personally at 7PM sharp. Bisous :*
