The Banditos Misteriosos, a band of merrymakers who hold fun events in Boston, are throwing a huge yankee gift swap on January 31, where 400 re-gifters will run amuck, swapping gifts as quickly as they can.
Spokesperson Ethan Bandito says, Its basically controlled chaos. The only rule is that the gift cant be bought, so it has to be something you found in your house or got off Craigslist. It can be a barrel as long as its wrapped.
Bandito believes that gift giving is a wonderful thing and should be a year-round activity, especially if it means getting rid of the stuff you dont want.
However, he insists that no one show up trying to re-gift anything crappy.
He says, Dont bring a plastic bottle wrapped in plastic. It has to be something someone might actually like, even if you dont like it.
