    Pass the parcel and know your new name

    If you people have not decided your new name yet, then you can play “pass the parcel” in order to name yourself randomly. What you have to do is, take a medium and a white paper. Cut the paper into equal size pieces. Write different, unique and funky names that come to your mind, on those pieces. Fold the pieces and place them in a bowl. Now, select a music keeper in order to turn the music on and off. Start passing the bowl once the music-keeper plays the music and stop as the music keeper turns it off, when least expected. Now, ask the person holding the bowl to pick and unwrap a piece of paper in order to know about his or her name for the day. Continue the game until the last piece of paper is unwrapped.
