Father and two sons were killed in a house fire at Christmas after tree lights set off an inferno

Eric King and his sons Liam and Patrick were killed in a house fire on Christmas morning in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, while the boys' mother Kristen and older brother Brady escaped (Author: Gardener)

ChristmasEric King and his sons Liam and Patrick were killed in a house fire on Christmas morning in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, while the boy's mother, Kristen and older brother Brady, Eric King, 41, and two of his children, age 11, escape could. One-year-old Liam and eight-year-old Patrick died. A father and two sons were killed in a house fire on Christmas morning. Eric King, 41, and his children Liam, 11, and Patrick, 8, died in a fire believed to have been started by the lights on their Christmas tree. Liam and Patrick's mother Kristen managed to escape the inferno with their eldest son Brady, 13, but their two dogs failed. “The evidence is very clear that it started in the Christmas tree. It was a real tree, ”said Police Chief Scott McElree. McElree stated that a Christmas tree "burns very quickly and very hot". The fire broke out in the early hours of Christmas morning. The police chief continued to describe the deaths as "terrible". The fire destroyed both the House of Kings and the adjacent house that was attached to it. The three deaths of a family well known in their community and the city's baseball scene have resulted in great grief. The tragedy has caused great grief in the city. The equivalent of £ 280,000 was donated to help the family recover in less than a day. "Eric and Kristin were high school sweethearts and the happiest people you have ever met," wrote organizer Kristin Randazzo on the Gofundme page. The three boys, Eric and Kristin, were all a big part of the Quakertown Youth Baseball Association and spent their days and nights on the baseball fields. ”Quakertown School District said in a statement posted on Facebook Saturday that the Kings“ the kind of people that make this a special place to live and a school ”. Tim Zindorf was one of those who donated money to the family. He wrote: “Ms. King, I deeply regret your enormous loss, and my heart is broken. "But please know that you and your family are loved and that so many people are thinking of you right now."

What to do with an unwanted Christmas present

Recycle, give away again, give back - experts reveal what you can do with a Christmas present that you simply don't want. (Author: Gardener)

ChristmasHowever, at one point or another we all received a gift that did not live up to our hopes. The sweater that doesn't fit, that we're allergic to ... The list goes on, and as grateful as we are for the thought, sometimes we get stuck in that unwanted gift. So what can you do with a gift that you don't like other than just gathering dust in your closet? If you have a gift receipt, you should be able to return the item to the store and receive a full refund. However, if you don't have a proof of purchase, bad news: you may not be able to take the item back. Some stores, especially larger ones, may take back an item without a proof of purchase. However, they give you the current price - so if it is discounted significantly now, that price will be refunded to you. If you throw away the toiletries or food items from baskets and cardboard boxes, save the container for re-use or even as a trash can. Use cups as pencils-pots, bowls for the birds, socks for dolls - you can even turn a sweater into a pillow! Sometimes you like an item and just wish it was a difficult color. Lyndsey Edwards of Reimagise Personal Stylist suggests, “Consider coloring it at home using a Dylon pod. Also, if the item is too large, you can take it to your local tailor or seamstress to make it a perfect fit for you. You can also tweak the overall style of the item if it doesn't quite suit your taste. She suggests remodeling jewelry into something new. Claire Stitt of Stapos Thrifty Life Hacks advises that whenever you get a gift that you don't particularly want, need, or like, think carefully about other ways you can use it to make your life a little bit easier. Lateral thinking. He says that if you don't love a gift and give it back to the giver, you could be honest. We know it's a brave choice, but it might be worth trying - and a win-win in the end. “It could be that you already have the item, or you just don't like it,” says Joseph. “Whatever the reason, you bought it and if you don't need or want it you can use it or get your own money back. “This openness could help you avoid a similar situation for the next year.” However, if you have a drawer full of these items, make a note of who gave you what. It's not uncommon for people to pass something on to the person who gave it to them, and it would certainly be embarrassing. Focused on positivity, self-care, and mental wellbeing, Stacie Cherry Swift says people on her street regularly give away things when they have an clearance - why not try the same thing? “Put the presents in front of the door with a 'FREE' sign,” says Stacie, who took candles, books and kitchen utensils with her on the way into town or on the school run. “It's nice to pass it on to someone else, but it is also gentle on the giver's feelings (unless they're your neighbors).” “Attach an anonymous note to the item and intentionally put it in a place with it he can be found by someone who might appreciate it more, 'she says. You could really change someone's day. Charity shops are in need of things to sell on a regular basis and are in need of money more than ever. However, consider more than just the charity shop. Your charity shop may still be backlogged after the lockdown. If you've received perishable items, see if there is a communal kitchen or something similar that can take the items for you. Baskets of groceries and toiletries can be broken into and delivered to your local board. Or you can give toiletries to a local hospital for families who were unable to bring them. Hold back some items for your child's raffle for the summer school party. Storing items for later in the year can help charities - especially those that have more problems at other times. Teachers often receive numerous gifts, and while grateful for the thought, they sometimes end up with some unwanted items. 30 candles can be tricky to use! She advises teachers and other members of the school community to donate to raise funds: “The school can create a few gift baskets out of all the unwanted gifts, which are then raffled off to raise money for the school or a selected charity. You can sell your items on auction websites, marketplaces, and trunk sales. “Have an unwanted gift swap party,” recommends Hayley Muncey of Miss Many Pennies. “Everyone brings an unwanted gift and exchanges for someone else's unwanted gift. "Hopefully everyone ends up having something they like better, and if not, it's still a good excuse to have some fun and socializing after Christmas while the calendar is blank after the festivities." You can also use well-preserved clothes and jewelry take a swish event and swap them. Organize an event yourself or search for a local one online. The aim is to help people through loneliness, isolation and mental health problems. On Boxing Day Keith will host a Zoom session "to have some fun, to bring people together who are on their own." "We'll also give people the opportunity to exchange or give away unwanted gifts," he says. Perhaps this year is the year you talk to people about the next time you cut down on current purchases. Suggest giving only to the kids, having wishlists, making a secret Santa, setting a cost limit on things, or agreeing to have everyone donate a lump sum to a selected charity.

"Is it offensive to return or sell a Christmas present that I am not going to use?"

While we are contractually bound to say "honesty is the best policy", it is not always easy to do. So here is Martyn James' guide on how to return gifts and get away with it (Author: Gardener)

ChristmasWhile we are contractually bound to say "honesty is the best policy", it is not always easy to do. So here is Martyn James' guide to sending gifts and getting through. The big question I am asked every year is: How can I return a gift that I don't like without hurting people's feelings? Although I am contractually obliged to say "honest is the best policy", it is not always easy. So here is my guide on how to return gifts and get away with it. But while faking joy, did you remember having a sneaky eyeball of the packaging, looking for that all-important gift receipt? A gift receipt is the holy grail for returning gifts and your ticket to a guilt-free New Year. It's pretty much the same as a regular receipt, but the price isn't listed. Be careful not to tear up your gift receipt. There are a few things you unfortunately have to live with: Perishable goods - from groceries to flowers, if time is limited in this world, chances are you can't give it back. Package Penetrated - Refunds for goods that are not damaged are at store's discretion and most have opened or damaged packaging rules. Made for you and refined gifts - if the gift has been personalized, from monograms to ornate items made just for you, stick with it. When you buy goods there are actually some laws and rules on your side when it comes to returning goods. In short, it depends on whether the goods were bought online or on the high street and whether the item is damaged or incorrect rather than changing your mind or an unwanted gift. Damaged goods are easier for you as you can simply ask the gift giver to return the item and get a refund. Then if you wanted to get the money and * um * reorder the gift yourself, you could do that yourself. You have more rights if the article is defective. If the goods are crooked or do not match the description, you have 30 days from the date of purchase to return the article - this period can be extended by the retailer over Christmas. You are entitled to a full refund if items are returned within these 30 days. Remember, the refund will go to the account of the person sending it back. So if the goods were bought online, the person who bought the gift will have to organize the refund. If you've exceeded 30 days, you have up to six months to return the items if they break or don't work. Do you think it's fair to return gifts? The retailer is allowed to make a mistake in repairing or replacing the item, but after that the buyer can request a refund. Even in the six months, all is not lost, although you have to prove why you didn't notice the item was damaged or that the problem wasn't just due to wear and tear. You might be looking for a repair or a replacement - and if the product has been updated since then, you won't be eligible for the updated version. But if you happen to have the item you already bought, or there is some other good reason why you can't use the gift, then if purchased online in the last 14 days, the buyer can get a full refund She. This period can also be extended after Christmas. If you buy online, you have 14 days to return an item if it is not intended for you, in accordance with the 2013 Consumer Agreement. You have to notify the company within this 14-day period, sometimes filling out a form to do so. Check online or use the resolver returns calendar to see if this period has been extended. Check the store's website and write down the return policy. Remember if you go to the main drag the staff will take care of sales and the long lines of grumpy people so be nice. In all cases it is helpful to have the right of return to hand. So why not save a screenshot on your smartphone or print it out? Resolver has a special calendar that covers the extended Christmas return dates for most of the dealers here. If you want to give back something that you don't like, doesn't fit, or just isn't your thing, then the rules are a little different. Some stores allow you to return items with standard or gift receipts. The shop is allowed to set the rules and deadlines for returning items you don't want, but they may insist that you show the receipt so you don't lose it. The jury isn't sure if a photo of a receipt counts, so speak to the store before entering to avoid any tills arguments. The gift receipt mentioned above is basically an additional receipt provided by the retailer, not including the price, so the person receiving the gift can return and exchange items. The traditional receipt works similarly, although the buyer must return the goods and receive the refund. You may have to settle for credit for a return, if that's the store's policy. But remember - if the item is damaged or not as advertised, you can get a full refund. Of course, you can take matters into your own hands and resell the item. There are literally hundreds of "vintage", specialized or wide-ranging online or app-based marketplaces where you can sell pretty much anything you can think of. However, watch out for the buyer / seller contract rules - and make sure you've checked the shipping rules too. Quite a few budding retailers have failed when the buyer brings a delivery dispute. If you have a problem with a return, Resolver can help!
