Taiwan's Version of Secret Santa

This is intermediate content, appropriate for learners who know about 2,500 words (TOCFL Level 3 / HSK 5).

You may have read our piece on the "All Pass Candy" tradition in Taiwanese universities, but that is far from the only tradition that takes place in schools in Taiwan.

Just as Secret Santa is commonly played in the West around Christmas time, Taiwanese students have their own similar game, which could be translated as "little angel and little master". The basic idea of the game is the same, but the gift giving isn't a one-time thing in Taiwan; rather, it involves multiple gifts and takes place over multiple days in December! You can read all about it in this intermediate level piece, which was written by our contributor, Joy Chang.
