The Origins of the White Elephant
White Elephant dates back several hundred years when the King of Siam, who was a tad bit passive aggressive, gave outrageous gifts to people he didn't care for. One gift was an actual white elephant- something the recipient couldn't refuse, but would have a terrible time logistically and financially caring for.
Over the years, White Elephant became synonymous with gifts one would rather not have. It became the perfect name for a gift exchange in which you might get something incredibly useful, or you might just go home with a "white elephant".
Today the game is played every year by millions of people who have to make that all important choice: do I steal the awesome headphones from Uncle Patrick or do I take my chances on the one with the big bow?
Be sure to visit the Solid Roots website where you will find the White Elephant Party Kit, normally $24.95, now $16.99. Then try following them on social media.
