Jane gave us a really fun Christmas assignment this year! She wants to hear about the strangest gift we were ever given! I have one that makes us laugh every year as we look back!
When my grandmother was alive, the extended family all got together at her house on Christmas Eve! There were so many of us that we would draw names to exchange gifts! I have this one aunt, who is a dear sweet lady! She didn't have a lot of money, but wanted to give everyone a present even if she didn't draw their name!
So one year the presents were passed around and sure enough, I had a small package from my aunt! When it came to my turn to open my gifts, I opened a small pocket sized package of tissues! I looked around at my kids and they were all laughing, but not out loud! We didn't want to hurt her feelings, but it was funny! The gift seemed very funny at the time, but I will say it was a very useful gift! Here is a shot to show you what it looked like!
MERRY CHRISTMAS BUZZNET
