This year, kickme444 and an assorted group of Redditors decided to put together one of the largest communal holiday gift exchanges on the internet for the Reddit community. This was no slap-dash operation, it led to the creation of redditgifts.com with over four thousand members participating in the exchange. You can read more about it at the website and on the /r/secretsanta subreddit. And yes, I finally sent mine today, so please stop sending me guilt-inducing emails, kickme444.
Today, I received a nondescript brown parcel from the UPS guy. Little did I know that it was in fact my Secret Santa gift. Please join me in the unboxing, don’t skip to the end – spoilers stink.
I believe in the magic illusion business, they call this misdirection. Try as you all might, but I don’t believe there will be a Secret Santa gift for this year that will be able to top this. It has everything. Mystery, suspense, brooding vampires, Star Trek, Adam Sandler, and a battle-scared iPhone. Dennis (coderascal), that was awesome. Higher-resolution images are available by clicking each photo or by going directly to the Flickr set.
Apologies in advance to my Secret Santa recipient. It doesn’t have one tenth of one percent the creativity that this did. And now it’s time to go watch Funny People.
