I’m not sure if I’ve ranted here before. So, mark this day on your calendars, well into my third year blogging I’m going to drop my fist rant on gift giving. It a topic that’s been burning a hole in the back of my mind for a few weeks now. It was sparked by an event at work, I’ll get to that later, but first a bit more on the act and my own history with giving gifts.
I think I’ve always been a fan of receiving gifts. I mean who doesn’t like to be given something out of the blue with no strings attached. Growing up in a large family. I’m the youngest of five, the holidays were always a big deal with lots of family around and plenty of gifts.
At some point the receiving switch flipped to giving. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy the occasional gift receiving, but found out giving gifts to others was just as good or even better experience. I once gave some good friends a brand-new television as a housewarming gift after winning some money playing blackjack in Atlantic City. That’s a story for another day.
