The Dangers of Regifting: The Canned Plum Pudding by Ellis Parker Butler
/

Happy May! In today’s episode, I share a new segment called “This (Christmas) Day in History”… we go back to Christmas 1990 and learn about the creation of the World Wide Web – is that the best Christmas present ever?

Then Gracie and I chat about her birthday, and then we play a Christmas Trivia Game – who do you think will win?

Finally, I read a Christmas story entitled, “The Canned Plum Pudding” by Ellis Parker Butler. Have you ever had a regifting experience that went horribly wrong? Let this story serve as a lesson for you, and think twice before you send that gift off to someone else.
