If you want a gift from the Obamas this Christmas, be prepared to put on your tap shoes. Or clown makeup. Or do some miming. No one gets a gift without performing, according to the First Lady.
She said so in an interview with Yahoo News. "Instead of giving gifts, we have sort of a grab bag of gifts," Michelle Obama said. "In order to get your gift from the grab bag -- and these are very inexpensive gifts -- you have to perform. Sing, dance, hula hoop, do a skit, do an imitation; it doesn't matter but everybody has to do something."
Cheery! She also said the Obama Christmas method is "a way to keep costs down." Times are hard.
