Finders keepers, losers weepers? The hunt starts NOW!

Hello, fellow redditors and friends. We have a little special something in store for you today. But—we’re going to make you work for it.

That’s right. This is a scavenger hunt. With the assistance of a few of our most trusted community members over in /r/secretsanta, we’ve hidden 56 packages for you to find. 50 states, 1 District of Columbia, and 5 additional countries. You’re on the search for a box full of fun, and inside you’ll find a variety of goodies for you and anyone you choose to share them with.
special thanks to /u/stuff_of_epics for the awesome gif. also Brad Pitt.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it

In each local subreddit, you’ll find a clue posted by someone from your community, hinting at where this box will be hidden. Then they'll post again once the box is officially in its hiding spot with another hint. Clues will be linked below, so you don’t have to worry about chasing waterfalls. Use these clues to go on your own local adventure to find the box hidden in your town! As the day progresses, if it hasn’t been found yet, they’ll post more clues.

Not sure what your local subreddit is? We’ve listed the state and city subreddits we’ll be posting in at the bottom of this post. If you find the package, please report back to your subreddit with photos so everyone can enjoy! The contents of each package are unique, filled with special products from some of our merchants (many of whom are redditors!) in the reddit marketplace.

Edit: The people who hid these boxes are all just normal redditors who were awesome and volunteered to help out. They also have jobs and school and other things, so please be patient with them if a few clues are posted late or you don't think the clues are as good as they should be. They had to come up with the hiding spots and clues all on their own and they did it for your sake, and you should thank them!

If you like getting boxes full of surprises from random strangers, there’s something really awesome you should try

Over 144,000 redditors in 174 countries have already signed up to participate in our 6th annual Secret Santa and exchange gifts and holiday cheer this year. We’re already on track to beat last year’s Guinness World Record, and we know this year is going to be more full of amazing, hilarious, touching, and fun gifts than ever. Don’t miss out!
