MILLIONS of unwanted presents are being listed online to commemorate Jesus’s parents flogging their gifts from the wise men.
The resale day of Epiphany has its origins in the Gospel of Luke, which describes how Mary and Joseph sold the myrrh and frankincense as soon as the last wise man disappeared over the horizon.
However they kept the gold because Joseph knew it would always hold its value.
Tom Logan said: “In the first seconds of January 6th I slammed those pasta bowls in a presentation box onto Ebay.
“This is the real Christmas for me – tapping the details of all those lame presents into my computer in anticipation of getting that first 99p bid.
“I grudgingly pretended to like these generic gifts at the time but I found them deeply offensive to me and degrading to the giver.”
