Secret Santa has become a part of Christmas traditions all around the world and there’s even an online version of it on Reddit, RedditGifts Secret Santa Exchange. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates also participates every year and other participants eagerly wait to get him as their Secret Santa.
This year, the lucky girl was Shelby from the US, who received gifts weighing 37 kg from her Secret Santa. The gift is books, a Harry Potter Santa hat, a giant Hogwart castle and an R2D2 puzzle. She also got a pair of elaborate Lego building sets and a bound manuscript of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby with scans of the author’s handwritten notes as he was writing the novel.
Among all the gifts, Bill Gates also made a donation in her late mother’s memory to the American Heart Association. Her mother had passed away in March this year, just 10 days before her wedding.
