Either the worst or best Christmas gift I have ever received was a can of leftover almonds. My husband’s grandparents ate a lot of mixed nuts, but neither of them liked almonds, and, having grown up during the Great Depression, they weren’t about to throw the almonds out. So, over the course of at least a year, they saved all their uneaten almonds in a spare can. When the can was full, they wrapped them up and gave them to us for Christmas that year.
