“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” – or so we are told… And Christmas is a magical season: time with family and friends, good food, catchy songs, and presents, presents, presents! However, this last item can be a source of either great joy or serious disappointment, depending on the gift. We took to Reddit (curator of all things weird and wonderful) to find some of the worst Christmas gifts ever received.
