Have you ever received a ‘white elephant’ gift?

What did you do with it?

Most of us save them for our next ‘white elephant’ gift exchange, send them to the thrift shop or simply throw them out.

Well, my teenage daughter, Ruthie, did none of those things.

She decided to wear her latest white elephant gift…

This is what Ruthie wears around the house when she is cold – her ‘white elephant’ hat along with a mismatched pair of gloves.

Needless to say, she wouldn’t be caught outside wearing this getup, but she is perfectly happy wearing it around the house (which by the way, is not that cold).

I think that in addition to ‘ugliest Christmas sweater’ contests, that there should be one for Christmas hats?
What do you think?

I love that Ruthie is comfortable wearing her unique Christmas hat… it brings a smile to those who see it 😉

    That hat is cute! Although as a teen I could see not wanting to wear this out in public. 🙂

    Ruthie is a good sport with a lovely smile and I bet her eyes are twinkling. I can hardly believe she's a teenager. Time is zipping right along.

    May you and yours have a love, peace & joy filled Christmas.
