The Gift of the Magi
by O. Henry
My favorite Christmas read is O. Henry’s short story, “The Gift of the Magi.” Its powerful message of selflessness and the generosity of the human spirit captures the true meaning of Christmas, especially in a day and age where the material can overwhelm the spiritual.

I love the story for the expression of completely unselfish love, which is the true meaning of Christmas, for me.
