One lucky girl had the best Christmas ever when she found out that Bill Gates was her Secret Santa. Through Reddit’s Secret Santa gift exchange, Bill Gates sent her a box-load of personalized gifts and Aerrix, the Reddit user, freaked out. Well, she was obviously super excited; it’s not every day that your Secret Santa turns out to be one of the richest people on earth.
And of course, Bill Gates did his homework well. Each of the gifts had something to do with what Aerrix loves, mostly video games. He sent matching Legend of Zelda mittens for her and her dog, three special edition wireless XBOX One controllers, the Minecraft Edition of XBOX One, along with a handwritten note about how much both of them love XBOXs. Then there was a Cajun cookbook, for Aerrix is from Southern Louisiana and misses her home food, Harry Potter slippers, a Zelda blanket, a paper model of a Zelda Master Sword, copies of her favourite movies, video games for her new XBOX, and a photoshopped photo of herself, her husband, and Gates in a Zelda frame. Phew!
If that isn’t enough, he made a donation in her name to code.org, which helps students learn more about computer science. Well, isn’t this something! She titled her post on Reddit “I won Secret Santa”, and she couldn’t be more right. She thanked Bill Gates profusely, and with uncontrollable excitement, if we are to take anything away from the several times she wrote in capital letters. Aerrix is definitely going to have a very merry Christmas!
