Scores of U.S. senators have signed on to an idea for a gift exchange, Secret Santa style, across party lines.
Senator Al Franken (D-MN) came up with the idea:
“We did Secret Santa when I was in grade school and I remember one year I picked this kid who used to intimidate me on the playground. Turns out after we got to know each other and we became friends. So, I thought Secret Santa would be a good way to cut through the partisan divide here in the Senate.”
And who knows, maybe it will create some unlikely friendships.
