Tiago, my sister has had a "secret friend" every year for years. Her church has secret friends throughout the entire year. You send your secret friend a birthday card, Christmas card, a get well card when they're ill, little presents, etc. I had a "secret friend" each Christmas (only at Christmas) when I was in school. I was a social worker for five years, and we did it possibly every year. There it wasn't an office-wide practice but one done within our unit (turma). In school or in the office, we had a very low limit that we could spend on a gift. This requirement made it more fun because we had to use our heads to find something inexpensive that would be a nice gift. One year I received a book I was crazy about. When I changed departments, none of my next three offices had the practice. My new companions went to work, worked, and went home. There was almost no social interaction between us at all. Too bad.
