Christmas is a time to spread cheer and joy. And Whales' Ken Watson continues to do so even in death.

The octogenarian recently passed away in October but not before ensuring he bought fourteen presents for his neighbour's young daughter Cardi.

The warm gesture came to light after his daughter arrived at the neigbour's house recently carrying a sack full of presents for the 2-year-old. Ken bought her 14 presents, one for each Christmas until Cardi turned 16.

Cardi's father and Watson's neighbour Owen Williams, who moved to wales just three years ago, was overwhelmed by the gesture. He said that Watson had been like a grandfather to Cardi and was deeply attached to her.

He posted a photo of the gift-wrapped presents Watson had left Cardi on Twitter. He wondered whether he should open all the presents at once or give Cardi one present each year.

The posts have gone viral, with many on Twitter commenting on the inspiring Christmas gesture. In fact, Own himself continued to provide follow-up updates to the story as interest continued to grow.













Owen thinks they will probably open the presents right away as they may be outdated by the time Cardi turns 16 and receives the last of them. They opened one of the presents and it turned out to be the book Christmas Eve at the Mellops' by Tumi Ungerer. Thr writer gave a shout out to William after the latter posted the photo of the book on Twitter.
