What the What?

This was one of the more unusual gifts in the white elephant exchange.  Yes, all products were unused!

What do cowboy hats, bird clocks and surgical tubing have to do with the Center for Student Life?

These are just a few of the things that made appearance during today’s Center for Student Life holiday party.  After members of the library, Office of Student Life, Reading/Writing Center, and the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center enjoyed a lunch together, we held a white elephant gift exchange.  Items that showed up at the exchange included a box of hats and masks, assorted Augustana promotional items, decorative serving dishes, an apple calendar, a bird clock, a swimsuit, dessert plates, angel statues, assorted chocolates and Peeps, a single-serving of cake, a Hawaiian lei, and a jar engraved with a person’s name on it… that was making it’s second appearance at the get together.  All of this, combined with assorted unused medical supplies from a coworker’s recent surgery, made for much hilarity over our lunch break today.

For some of these items, they have found a new home. Others?  Well, there is always next year’s holiday gathering!  Happy Holidays, folks!
