In this festive season, 2022 Christmas, Floyd Money Mayweather, the greatest boxer of his generation who won all 50 of his professional bouts, posted a message on Instagram.
He claims that he doesn’t accept gifts on Christmas because he believes that every day is something to be thankful for.
I won’t be accepting gifts for Christmas, my birthday, Valentine’s Day, or Father’s Day, he declared on Instagram. Because I believe that every day should be celebrated and not just one or two commercial holidays, I give gifts constantly throughout the year.
If a gift is only given during a special occasion, where is the thought behind it? You only consider giving me a gift when the norm dictates that you do so, don’t you? I realise that people can’t give me what I give them, but it’s the little, kind gestures that mean the most. It’s all about giving and receiving. Not the gifts I get four times, but the random gift on any given day is priceless.
