Man Keeps Unopened Gift From Ex For 50 Years, Until His Wife Finally Had Enough.
A Christmas Tradition
Adrian's wife dealt with the gift for a while, but considering how awkward it was for her, she banned it from being underneath her Christmas tree. Even the kids were pestering him to open the gift. “After my family opened their gifts at Christmas, there was still one Christmas gift left and it’s the gift this girl Vicki had given me. I told my family I’m never going to open that present,” explained Adrian.
Adrian may have stopped putting the gift under the tree, but he continued to look at it when Christmas approached every year. "I kept it initially because I guess I had hopes that we would get back together and open it together. Now it’s just become a habit after 47 years of looking at it and having the pleasure of not opening it," said Adrian.

Honestly, what did he expect? Once he told people that he was holding on to the gift for almost five decades they were obviously going to be curious as to what was inside of it. Would he open it? Would the curiosity be fed?

One day, Adrian decided to post a picture of the present on Facebook along with the story of his first romance. For some reason, it gained way more attention than Adrian ever thought it would get. People wanted to know what was inside of the gift! “Maybe I don’t want to know what’s inside it. It’s more exciting right now not opening the thing,” said Adrian.
