The Gift of the Magi

"The Gift of the Magi" isn't simply a story about giving presents. O. Henry's main message concerns love and sacrifice. Write one paragraph in which you discuss the theme of this story

The story the gift of the magi is about a non wealthy married couple, who want to give each other a worthy enough gift on christmas, which was the day after. When she was going to buy her husbands a gift all she had was one dollar and eighty seven cents , whith which she could buy nothing worthy enough gift for her husband. So she decides to sell her prizest posetion,which was her long and beautiful brown hair. The theme of this story is that you don't need much to have a good family christmas day and that sometimes one has to sacrifice what one most likes to give someone you love something nice and even if you dont have a good use for it because it was supposed to be for her what they havde sold but the point is that whatever you give to someone either it be priceless or unworthy to someone it is the thought that counts no matter what it is.
