Give to a stranger and get creative
The suspense and mystery of opening a gift, without knowing who the sender is in your family is always exciting. Now imagine that excitement in receiving a gift from a total stranger, and of course gifting something to another stranger too!
As part of the Christmas special events; the popular Flinders Street Markets have put together a "Giant Secret Santa".
This event aims to bring the local community together, feed the Christmas spirit and make it possible for those people who for one reason or another, don't receive a gift at Christmas time, and also don't have someone whom they can give a gift to.
