Secret Santa, Engerl & Bengerl, Amigo secreto, Lootjes trekken or Julklapp: It doesn’t matter what you call it, Wichteln is a lot of fun! Austrian Airlines and ambuzzador take the popular Austrian Christmas tradition online – so let’s wichtel!
Wichtels are the elves who help load Santa’s sleigh with presents – and Wichteln is when Austrian children exchange gifts secretly around Christmas time! Nobody knows who’s giving the gifts, and nobody knows what they’re going to get – but that’s half the fun of the game!
Austrian Airlines uses the mechanic of this popular Austrian Christmas tradition in a unique Facebook application: Start wichteling with new friends around the whole world!December 24, 2013
