Now that Santa has come and gone for another year, did he leave you any garbage gifts?

I'm not talking about a new trash can or a years supply of Hefty trash can liners.

These would be the type of gifts that, how should I say this, didn't exactly blow up your skirt!

If you received a lousy gift this year, don't worry, you're not alone. According to a new study, one-in-four of us will toss that garbage gift in the trash.

Most of us are too polite to say we're not happy with the gift and ask the gift giver if it would be alright if we returned it.

So, instead, we smile, say "Gee thanks, I've always wanted a nose hair trimmer shaped like a finger" and then chuck it in the trash to avoid offending someone.

I remember one year getting a "smokeless ashtray" for Christmas. A great gift for a smoker. Just one problem, I've never smoked a day in my life! By the way, thanks for doing your homework aunt Mary!

How about you, did you or have you ever received any strange, bizarre, garbage gifts for Christmas?
