    Alumni communities across the country continue the tradition by volunteering at local food pantries, churches, youth holiday events and more.

  6. The pure joy you receive from watching your buddy rip into your gift like it's Christmas morning.

    Although you may have only spent $10, their shrills of excitement are worth a million.
