On Thursday, December 18, 2014 the students from the YMCA Academy did the Gift Exchange in the cafeteria.
We hung out in the cafeteria for a bit, then Avery (a student at the YMCA Academy who organized it) gave our gifts to us.
The rules about the gifts were we had to keep them a secret, and we could not buy gifts because it’s not fair to other people. I gave my gift, which is an origami flower that I made. Some people got books, food and art.
It’s fun because we don’t get to do this everyday. We do things like the gift exchange because it is fun and we get to see each other open presents.
