Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the giving and receiving of gifts each year. Different types of gifts find value in the hearts of ORU students.
“My most prized Christmas gift is the pearls my grandma gave me. She gives pearls to each granddaughter when she turns 16,” said senior education major Juelie Scanlon.
For other students, warm nostalgia fills their memory when they ponder past Christmas gifts.
“My favorite Christmas gift was a 3-and-a-half-story Barbie house when I was about 6 years old,” said sophomore Rosina Albanese. “It was taller than me!”
Other Christmas gifts are held highly esteemed because they invoke talent.
“My best Christmas gift was my mandolin because I love playing it,” said junior Bruce Dixon. “My sister and my mom bought it for me when I was 19.”
Christmas gifts come in all different shapes and sizes, but some of the most valuable ones are found in the least expected packages.
