Families spend more time together during the holiday season (here defined as any time between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day) than any other time during the calendar year. One of the highlights of this time period is the gift giving process. Everyone, especially young children, is excited to see what "Santa Claus" (there may be young kids reading this!) put under the tree for them.
Wives may be excited to see what their husbands thought to get for them. However, they may really be intrigued if they found out some other items the man bought - gifts for his mistress.
