Muslim Organizes Secret Santa at his Workplace
I've held my present position with my employer since last fall (2004), and unlike last Christmas, this year we're doing something at the office which had never been done before- Secret Santa gifts. The irony is that this year's inaugural Secret Santa was suggested and coordinated by none other than- yours truly. I haven't fasted or prayed in a mosque or otherwise in the past ten years, yet I felt compelled to organize and take part in a tradition which no G-d fearing Muslim would dream of. I'm such a blasphemer! It's all in good fun though and has zero spiritual meaning for me. Our office morale needed a lift and I'll take credit for giving it to them. Shame on my Christian co-workers for not thinking of it themselves. Ha! Let's see what I get. I'm looking forward to it.
