A few weeks ago my wife was teasing me for talking to my Internet friends on my headset. “Are you sure they’re real? How do you know them so well?” Her questions were answered when a package from Secret Santa arrived on our doorstep. It was a box full of my favorite things.

Yeah, my internet friends are real, and they’re fantastic!

The founders wanted to host a Secret Santa this year, however we know they don’t have a ton of free time, so Cody volunteered to make it happen. Our community was very excited to participate. They sent awesome presents, and were grateful for the neat things they received. It was honor to be a part of the inaugural Cardsphere Secret Santa, and we can’t wait for next year. In fact, there's even talk about doing a Secret Half Christmas, but look for more details on that next summer.

We want to thank the founders for letting us two Discord hooligans run the show, and the Secret Santas who made everything so easy.

A few fun facts:

  • 39 participants
  • 7 different countries represented
  • 22% of participants are from Texas
  • 2/3 Cardsphere founders participated
  • Gifts traveled a total of 106,861 miles (171,976 kilometers)
  • Furthest distance: 9418 miles (15157 kilometers) from MrTibbs to Itgik
  • Shortest distance: 95 miles (153 kilometers) from Jake to DougyFresh

Here's the loot (no particular order):
