Shhh! It's a secret!

MGA's schoolwide secret gift exchange - also known as the Kris Kringle swap - takes place the week before Winter break and makes magical memories for everyone. Academy girls select the names of fellow MGA students and secretly leave tiny gifts for them over a handful of days. Identities are revealed when a final present is unwrapped the day before Winter break. MGA students either surprise an old friend or make a new one through this much-loved tradition.
