New Zealand PM to take part in nationwide Secret Santa

Ms Ardern tweeted to confirm she is among almost 4,000 people across New Zealand who have signed up to take part in a nationwide Secret Santa.

For the uninitiated, Secret Santa sees participants draw names at random and buy (usually small) gifts for each other without revealing who they are from.

Those taking part in New Zealand’s Secret Santa are set to discover who they have been paired with on Thursday.
