First of all, for those of you who are wandering what cuchumbo is, it´s the same thing as  Secret Santa or Kris Kringle. Each participant writes their name in a piece of paper, places it in bag and then draws out the name of the person for whom they have to buy a gift. Before Christmas you have a party or dinner where one person starts saying who their Cuchumbo is and gives the present to that person and then that person says who they got, and so on and so forth until the last person has received their gift.

I´ve been involved in a lot of Cuchumbos, but I have to say the most fun I ever had in one was in my Senior Year in high school, the whole grade participated, and you had to buy a gift for 50 Lempiras ($2.50), it was hilarious because people came up with very funny gifts.

This year I have 2 Cuchumbos both from my Husband´s family, it´s kind of a family tradition. I drew out 2 men which makes the brainstorming for the gifts harder!

So, any Ideas?
