This Man Held On To His Ex’s Gift For Half A Century Before Opening It

Many of us remember our high school sweethearts well into adulthood, but we don’t usually hold on to a gift they gave us for several decades. At the very least, we don’t often keep their gift unopened for half a century. That’s what Adrian Pearce decided to do after his former girlfriend ended their relationship just before Christmas in the late ’70s. Read on to find out what compelled Adrian to hold on to the present for so long, and what he discovered when he finally opened it.

This is Adrian Pearce when he was a teenager in the 1970s. At the time, he attended George S. Henry Secondary School in Toronto, Ontario. Like most teenage boys, he enjoyed spending time with prospective love interests.

Adrian ended up spending most of his time in high school without being in a serious relationship. It wasn’t until his senior year that he would meet a girl he felt strongly for, and her name was Vicki Allen.
