I was just curious, I don't know history or details, but is probably best describe as the oppisite of christmas, instead of giving gifts you know someone wants, you get them something no one wants. (Like the fruitcake as a joke) But the idea is to get a gift so ridiculous no body can't get rid of it no matter how hard they try. Not sure what is about but the name probably has something to do with the Phrase "There is a elephant in the room." Which no one probably wants around. If you do participate in that, you can either tell us about it, or the experience with it at least, is it fun, or not. I never actually done this, just saw it on some tv shows, but is confusing why this exist, was it someway to indirectly tell someone that you hate them or what? It makes for fun shows to watch but i wonder i there is more to it than what i observed.
