Adrian Pearce became semi-famous after revealing last year that back in 1970, when he was 17, his girlfriend gave him a Christmas present just before dumping him and that, in all the years since, he kept the present unopened and even put it under his family’s tree every holiday season for a while.
Now he’s decided it’s time to open the gift, the CBC reports.
After the story went viral, Pearce says, his ex got in touch.
She explained her reason for breaking up with him (she had just met someone else) and revealed that she doesn’t remember what’s inside the package.
He’s invited her to a Dec. 6 event to unwrap the gift herself, since he’s vowed never to open it; if she doesn’t show, his wife will unwrap it.
