    I did not know this short story, thanks to Amalia, who brought me to this short book In the spirit of Christmas, this is a heartwarming story about a young and poor couple who both, without knowing it from each other, sacrifice something personal and precious, to give each other a present at Christmas Lovely, a classic I see here now, happy I have read it, recommended Merry Christmas everyone

    O Henry s The Gift of the Magi, illustrated by Lizabeth Zwerger was among my gifts to my wife our first Christmas together It is one of our annual traditions that I read it to her each Christmas Yes, I m hopelessly romantic I imagine we ll finally hit a year when I hear a gentle snore when she nods off as I m reading ONE dollar and eighty seven cents That was all And sixty cents of it was in pennies Pennies saved one and two at a time by bulldozing the grocer and the vegetable man and O Henry s The Gift of the Magi, illustrated by Lizabeth Zwerger was among my gifts to my wife our first Christmas together It is one of our annual traditions that I read it to her each Christmas Yes, I m hopelessly romantic I imagine we ll finally hit a year when I hear a gentle snore when she nods off as I m reading ONE dollar and eighty seven cents That was all And sixty cents of it was in pennies Pennies saved one and two at a time by bulldozing the grocer and the vegetable man and the butcher until one s cheeks burned with the silent imputation of parsimony that such close dealing implied Three times Della counted it One dollar and eighty seven cents And the next day would be Christmas.There was clearly nothing to do but flop down on the shabby little couch and howl So Della did it Which instigates the moral reflection that life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating I doubt anyone will howl about spoilers, because I can t imagine anyone who doesn t know this story Now, there were two possessions of the James Dillingham Youngs in which they both took a mighty pride One was Jim s gold watch that had been his father s and his grandfather s The other was Della s hair Had the queen of Sheba lived in the flat across the airshaft, Della would have let her hair hang out the window some day to dry just to depreciate Her Majesty s jewels and gifts Had King Solomon been the janitor, with all his treasures piled up in the basement, Jim would have pulled out his watch every time he passed, just to see him pluck at his beard from envy.So now Della s beautiful hair fell about her rippling and shining like a cascade of brown waters It reached below her knee and made itself almost a garment for her And then she did it up again nervously and quickly Once she faltered for a minute and stood still while a tear or two splashed on the worn red carpet Of course, Della sells her hair to buy a watch fob chain for Jim s watch And Jim sold his watch to buy a set of hair combs Della had long admired in a shop window.O.Henry concludes it this way The magi, as you know, were wise men wonderfully wise men who brought gifts to the Babe in the manger They invented the art of giving Christmas presents Being wise, their gifts were no doubt wise ones, possibly bearing the privilege of exchange in case of duplication And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most unwisely sacrificed for each other the greatest treasures of their house But in a last word to the wise of these days let it be said that of all who give gifts these two were the wisest Of all who give and receive gifts, such as they are wisest Everywhere they are wisest They are the magi At times in our Christmas rush we tend to turn our thoughts to the material Don t get me wrong, I love opening a present as much as the next man But the greatest gift is love It s true Hair grows fast enough A watch can always be replaced I ll pass on things in pretty paper I ll take love any day.Thanks for a timeless classic, Mr Porter, errrMr Henry And of all the editions of this tale I ve seen, the beautiful illustrations of Ms Zwerger make this book a treasure to share with someone for whom you care very, very much.Nowwhere s that wine bottle opener Candlesuhm,hmm Book Wife All s right with the world

    I recently read this for the first time as a short story in a collection of O Henry s works This is done up as a children s picture book I don t think it works all that well as a children s book It is too wordy and there are a lot of words needing to be explained to them not that that s bad and I rather like introducing new words, but there are a lot at once The artwork was lovely, very sparse with a feeling of poverty, desperation, and some warmth You can see that Jim and Della love eac I recently read this for the first time as a short story in a collection of O Henry s works This is done up as a children s picture book I don t think it works all that well as a children s book It is too wordy and there are a lot of words needing to be explained to them not that that s bad and I rather like introducing new words, but there are a lot at once The artwork was lovely, very sparse with a feeling of poverty, desperation, and some warmth You can see that Jim and Della love each other and it s amazing to see Della s hair I still don t know what to think about this story I have to admit I think it s such a waste to sell their possessions for something and then the other person did the same and your gift is worthless, but it s the thought that counts The story just never lands for me as something wise I guess it shows the growth I still need to do The kids weren t crazy about this story They both gave this 1 star They were bored and it took 2 nights to read this as the first night they gave up through it
