I always remember a story from my childhood. It is called The Gift of the Magi and was written by American writer, O. Henry. My father had a collection of O. Henry’s short stories in a leather-bound book. I kept it for myself after he died. Sadly, I have lost it. But I always remember this story. I am going to share it here.
Here is a link to the story online: http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/GifMag.shtml
