About National Re-Gifting Day
Every year Re-gifting Day is celebrated on the third Thursday of December.
Have you ever received something from someone and thought, “Oh gosh! What would I do of this?”
Instead of keeping these things to rot, it’s always better to give them to someone who would make fair use of it. The motive is to hand over a thing that is not useful to one another. So, the value of the item doesn’t go in vain. It's not about de-cluttering, an excuse to dump unwanted gifts on others.
Re-gifting Day began to be primarily celebrated in office Christmas parties; though, it has since gained popularity in the general populace.
National Re-gifting Day was made official by then Colorado governor Bill Ritter Jr in 2008.
