Reddit Ends Secret Santa Gift-Giving Platform

Reddit is shutting down the beloved Secret Santa platform Reddit Gifts after the 2021 holiday season. Gizmodo reports: Over the years, the related forum r/secretsanta has attracted over 200,000 members and celebrity surprises such as a cat drawing by Arnold Schwarzennegger, an autographed photo of Shaq, and annual thoughtful gift packages from Bill Gates containing items such as video games, a horse blanket, and 81 pounds of books and toys.

"This year, women around the country have staked out each other’s homes in the name of a quest that gained popularity during the pandemic: raising spirits by giving spirits, anonymously."

"Booze fairies, as they’re called, bring together the childhood thrill of ding-dong ditch with a side of Secret Santa and a dash of adult beverages. Sometimes, they wear wings and a tutu.... Booze fairies operate on a 'pay it forward' philosophy. Participants share their addresses (and alcohol preferences) with volunteer group leaders, who then assign them to various other fairies.

A Simple Christmas: Gifts From the Heart

Sisters, I’m going to admit something ugly here. This is a safe space, right? Lean in close so I don’t have to speak these words above a whisper: I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas. There, I said it. (Please don’t judge.) Since we’re being honest, can you relate to this feeling? It makes me feel like a bad person to harbor any ambivalence about a holiday celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ — the most important event in all of human history — so I’ve analyzed the source of those fee...

Amidst Uncertainty, How Will You Celebrate Staff This Holiday Season?

"Jingle Bells" vintage sheet music wall hanging

As part of my equestrian-themed Christmas decor this year, I wanted to feature the classic "Jingle Bells" song in some major way. I love the look of vintage sheet music, so I decided to make a giant wall hanging out of a page of music from the song. What a nostalgic and unique touch that would make! I started with a graphic of vintage Jingle Bells sheet music that I found on Zazzle and I had it printed in giant poster size. To turn this poster into a wall hanging, I wanted to add wooden poste...

Bill Gates played Secret Santa to a Michigander, sending 81 pounds of goodies tailored just for her

Since roughly 2012, billionaire Bill Gates has been participating in Reddit’s annual Secret Santa gift exchange, which matches Reddit users with internet strangers who give them presents.
