Another way to receive gifts is through an invisible or secret friend. On its origin, several theories are put forward, placing one of them in 19th century Venezuela with the secret compadre de papelito. This exchange was carried out between the engaged women, who could not have friends in and, faced with such a prohibition, decided to exchange gifts by randomly taking out a piece of paper with the name of a person to whom they would give a gift. Currently, the invisible friend has different variants and names: in the Philippines it is known "Manita-Manito" and, in Mexico, the exchange of gifts between office colleagues is the "godín exchange". In Colombia and Paraguay this game is held on other dates such as Friendship Day.
