“Presents are for giving, not for receiving, don’t you agree…?” asks a scratchy, Santa-sounding voice.
Callers on the other end nod, feeling slightly dismayed they won’t be given a gift, but soon perk up once they hear their task…
As you’ll view in the video above, an incredible “Christmas Gift Experiment” had commuters at the Birmingham New Street train station in the UK presenting gifts to random strangers.
The experiment began with a phone call from Santa, ringing from a gigantic gift box placed in the middle of the station.
Curious passerby’s picked up the phone and were delighted to hear Saint Nick on the other end of the call.
Once a Christmas present dropped from a chute, many assumed they would receive the treat. But, of course, gifts are for giving. So, ‘Santa’ described a person in the crowd they should deliver it to, and each individual quickly hung up the phone before dashing to deliver the wrapped present.
What was gleaned from the fun holiday experiment? Quite simply, that the act of gifting something to others can generate a lot of fun, and that charity is the reason for the season.
