Holiday Party 2011
December 9, Saunders Hall, 3rd floor
The annual anthropology holiday get-together featured the usual array of foods from around the world, colorful decor, and plenty of opportunity to renew ties of friendships. A new feature: green gifting! Instead of a Secret Santa gift exchange, people were asked to bring in gently used objects from their households to be repurposed and placed in a pool of anonymous gifts. These were then redistributed, mainly to and among graduate students. Who was to know that a slightly worn stuffed animal from one household could become a warm, fuzzy transitional object to aid dissertation writing in a graduate student’s office? Happy holidays to all in 2011!
