Why Is It Called White Elephant Anyway?
Hundreds of years ago in Thailand (and other Asian countries), the white elephant was considered to be a holy being. But the upkeep of this animal was difficult and outrageous to say the least. They required special food, holy housing, and all sorts of special treatment (Kind of like your mother-in-law). So much in fact, that the only person who could afford a white elephant was a king. The death of a white elephant spelled serious DISASTER, so these animals were pretty pampered pets. The origin of the white elephant gift began when ancient kings would become extremely displeased with their assistants. They would gift a white elephant to the assistant. At first, this was seen to be a great honor. But soon, this crippled the assistant by the huge financial burden that came with the white elephant. Hence, when we give obnoxious, silly gifts of little value, we call them WHITE ELEPHANT GIFTS!
Note: The White Elephant Party Kit is not a white elephant gift. Well, technically, it is, but not in the sense we just told you about. White Elephant gifts are traditionally terrible, but this White Elephant gift is awesome. There’s a difference. It’s subtle, but you’re smart.
