Has anybody gotten a weird present for their birthday? or Xmas? my hubby's parents gave him a jar of olives once for xmas, and a $7.50 container of cashews the xmas after. oh, yeah, and the funniest (or saddest, i dunno) a calendar from the local chemist that was free. (and no, they aren't doing it tough either... they are very well off.) Some years he gets nothing. not even a card. I do recall him getting a xmas teatowel with glitter on the santa claus outfit... the look on his face was priceless.. hahaha.
