Best Christmas reads: the Gift of the Magi

…speaking of high-school English class, remember this famous short story by O. Henry. First published in the New York Sunday World in 1905, it is a lovely tale of gift-giving with the booksironic twist that O. Henry was famous for. Available to read on-line here  along with many other Christmas tales and stories, most of which I’m not familiar with. I do remember this one though, from those long-ago days of high school, not because my memory is so great but because the story is so memorable.
