Christmas is about giving, not receiving. That’s the message British TV Channel Christmas 24 wanted to spread this festive season.
To do so, the Channel set up a huge Christmas-themed phone box with a sign offering free presents in Birmingham’s Grand Central Station.
In a video shared on YouTube, people who approach the phone box can be seen receiving a call from a mystery person.

They are then distributed a present, but in a twist, are told they aren’t allowed to keep it. Instead, they are instructed to hand the gift over to a stranger in the station.
People are of course shocked to be chased down by a random stranger offering them a gift, but are soon overwhelmed by the act of kindness.
