Be prepared. Your Secret Santa will probably disappoint you this year, cause your Secret Santa isn't Bill Gates.
准备好啦。今年,你的神秘圣诞老人可能会让你失望了,因为他不是比尔•盖茨。

 

A Reddit user named Aerrix says the world's richest man -- worth a cool $75 billion, in case you've forgotten -- sent her gifts last week through Reddit's Secret Santa Gift exchange.
红迪网的用户Aerrix称,这位世界上最富有的人上周通过红迪网“神秘圣诞老人的礼物”传递活动给她送了礼物——以防你不记得,提醒一下比尔•盖茨的身价高达750亿美元。

 

The gifts were awesome, and she was a little bit excited about it. We know this because about half of the words in a post she wrote about it were in all caps.
比尔•盖茨的礼物棒极了,Aerrix因此有点激动。我们之所以会知道这点,是因为她的帖子中近一半的单词都是大写的。

 

Aerrix wrote of getting a mysterious box -- a "freakin' HUGE BOX," she called it -- of opening it and seeing a picture of Gates in a Santa hat on top, of calling her husband and blurting out the news -- "BILL GATES IS MY FREAKIN SANTA!!!!!!!" -- and of course, going through and unwrapping these gifts of pure joy.
Aerrix在帖子中描写了她得到的神秘盒子——她称之为一个“大得惊人的盒子”,她还写道打开盒子后看到一张盖茨戴着圣诞帽的照片,她立即叫来老公告诉他这个消息——“比尔•盖茨居然是我的圣诞老人!!!!”当然帖子里还写了他们非常开心地拆礼物。

 

She loved them, because Gates, the Microsoft founder and philanthropist, did his homework. You see, Aerrix loves stuff like video games and the Legend of Zelda. It says so on her Reddit Gifts profile page, which Gates obviously read, because he loaded her up with all kinds of goodies like:
因为这位微软创始人兼慈善家盖茨做足了功课,所以Aerrix非常喜爱这些礼物。Aerrix的红迪网礼物资料页上写着,她喜欢电子游戏和《赛尔达传说》这类东西。盖茨肯定读过她的资料,因为他送给Aerrix的各式各样的礼物包括:

 

the matching Zelda mittens for her and her dog ...
为Aerrix和她的狗狗准备的同款赛尔达手套……

 

and the Minecraft edition Xbox One (with three wireless controllers) ...
一台Minecraft版的Xbox One游戏机(配有三个无线游戏控制器)……

 

and the Harry Potter slippers ...
哈利•波特款拖鞋…

 

and the Cajun cookbooks (because she's from southern Louisiana and hasn't forgotten her roots) ...
法餐食谱(因为Aerrix来自路易斯安纳州南部,而她一直思念着自己的故乡)…

 

and a Legend of Zelda master sword (it's made out of paper) ...
《赛尔达传说》中的大师剑(用纸做的)……

 

and the photoshopped picture of Aerrix, her husband and Gates in a cute as pie Zelda frame.
以及一张将Aerrix和丈夫以及盖茨P在一起的照片,而且照片被放在了一个可爱的赛尔达相框里。

 

But Gates wasn't done, she wrote. He also made a donation in her name to code.org, which helps students learn about computer science.
Aerrix写道,但这还没完事儿。盖茨还以她的名字向code.org捐款,这家网站帮助学生了解计算机科学。

 

"Which is AWESOME because it's something near and dear to my heart as my husband is a programmer and my brother has a degree in computer science!" she wrote.
她称,“这个礼物太棒了,它对我来说是非常亲密的礼物,因为我的丈夫是一名程序员,而我弟弟拥有计算机科学学位!”

 

This Secret Santa stuff is nothing new for Gates though. He's has been doing this since at least 2013.
“神秘的圣诞老人”活动对盖茨并不是什么新鲜事儿。至少从2013年起,他就在做这件事了。

 

And he's not the only celebrity doing the Santa thing. Other celebs like Alyssa Milano and Snoop Dogg have also taken part in Reddit's Secret Santa exchange.
而他也不是唯一一个当圣诞老人的名人。艾莉莎•米兰诺、史诺普•道格等其他名人也参加了红迪网的“神秘圣诞老人”传递活动。

 

So it makes you wonder for next year ... is Warren Buffett on Reddit?
人们因此好奇明年沃伦•巴菲特会来红迪网吗?
