The holiday season is meant to be a time of joy and happiness, but for one family, it turned into a nightmare. A young woman received an unexpected gift from her father that caused her to break down in tears. The gift was a set of pictures that revealed a family secret and left the woman feeling hurt and betrayed. She lashed out at her father, calling him a monster for what he had done. Now, she's wondering if she was in the wrong. Was she justified in her anger, or did she overreact? Let's take a closer look at the situation and see if we can determine who is the true Grinch in this story.

Dad's 'Christmas gift' to sister sparks family feud 😡🎁

A daughter has called her father a monster after he gave her sister a Christmas gift that left her in tears. The gift was an envelope containing three photos of her biological mother and her two sons, along with names, an address, and phone number. The father had previously refused to give information about the mother, causing a strain on their relationship. The father had bribed the mother when she was 19 to carry the pregnancy to term, with the grandparents selling a house to fund the bribe. After the sister had the abortion, the father gave her the photos, which caused a major argument between the siblings. The rest of the family has taken sides, with the daughter being called a grinch for ruining Christmas, and the mother remaining silent. The fallout from this event has left the family divided, with many unresolved issues. Read on for the comments and reactions to this family feud.
