Reflections: Christmas Gifts

-A A +A
By Thomas W. Ivines

A radio commercial I like is the one where the guy practices being excited about receiving Christmas gifts that he really doesn't want. I listened to it and laughed, but then I realized I find myself in the same situation every holiday.

What I really don't understand is how some of these gifts have remained on the market for years.

My favorite useless gift that has been given for decades is the fruitcake. No one really eats fruitcake. I think they just pass them on. The fruitcake you got five years ago may be the same one you got this year.
