For some people, the greatest part of Christmas is getting gifts. For others, the best part is giving gifts.
If you’ve ever bought a gift you were really excited about, you know exactly what I am talking about. You want to give the gift that very minute because you want to see the receiver’s face when they open it!
For Mike Burr, the special gift he got this Christmas wasn’t from his wife, it came from his son.
His 11-year-old son spent three months saving his money just to buy his dad a gift. He even saved his birthday money, which he had asked for with his dad’s gift in mind.
His son was really excited to give him his gift, but he made his dad work for it. He wrapped the gift inside many boxes, making his dad go through the entire process of unwrapping each box, only to find another box inside.
But when he got to the last box, he was absolutely shocked that his son had bought him something so expensive. He bought him a PlayStation 4, something he’d wanted for a long time!
