It’s story time! (For the grownups, but kids can listen to this one, too.)
For something Christmas-y and fun, I’m reading for you The Gift of the Magi, a short story in the public domain. First published in 1906, it’s written by O. Henry, a writer known for closely-observed tales of everyday people, wit, wordplay, warm characterization and clever twist endings.
You might remember this classic story from school. Enjoy!
