National Regifting Day
National Regifting Day is an annual observance held each year on the Thursday before Christmas. Many office holiday parties are held on this day, and research shows that 40 percent of office party gifts are regifted—that is, something given to someone and then re-given to another person without use.
On October 24, 2008, the state of Colorado declared December 18, 2008, "National Regifting Day," in an official proclamation issued by the state's governor, Bill Ritter, Jr.. Money Management International made NationalRegiftingDay.com and Regiftable.com to give people a fun way to learn more about regifting dos and don'ts, and to start the conversation on a topic many people are reluctant to discuss—holiday spending and financial worries.
