Sharing How Our Xmas Party Was!!
So! These are the rules for the gifts that we could get for the gift exchange party!
- Had to be anime goods or the ones related to anime (manga comics or games are okay too)
- If you chose food or novelty items, they had to be a collaborated one with anime chara or anime series

- We drew lots as to who gave the gift to who
