Like any other festive season, Christmas is the time of giving and appreciating the people around you, and the love this old man had for his neighbours certainly shows that.

Earlier this week (18th December), a Twitter user named Owen Williams from the United Kingdom shared the sad news that his elderly neighbour had recently passed away. However, things got even more tear-jerking when the old man’s daughter found a sack of Christmas presents.

It was soon discovered that the old man had actually bought Christmas presents for Owen’s two-year-old daughter for the next 14 years, until her 16th birthday!

Owen speculated the reason behind this was that his neighbour, Ken, thought he would live until he was 100, so the number of gifts was meant to last until he turned that age.

In light of this discovery, Owen and his wife thought of making it a tradition to give one present to their daughter every Christmas to keep Ken’s memory alive.

Since the story of Ken’s Christmas presents surfaced, the tweet soon became viral, garnering over 8,200 retweets and over 44,000 likes as of 20th December. On top of that, due to the sheer amount of public interest in this story, Owen has promised to post a photo of each Christmas present every year until 2032!

This story has definitely touched thousands of people from all over the world, and since Christmas is just around the corner, hopefully it will remind us all to cherish our family and loved ones a little more from now on!
