  4. My favorite birthday gift was actually given to me this year. My great uncle passed away in April and we had his estate auction in July. My dad bought for my birthday a bosal that was hand braided by my great uncle. I’ve wanted one for a couple years and this one is even better because of where it came from. It’s is something I will own for the rest of my life and will be passed on to my kids.
