In Two Texas Truths and a Lie, three stories are given to two contestants to compete to see who can figure out the fake one.

Today, we have Texas Standard Director Leah Scarpelli and one of our interns, Nadia Hamdan. 

Because it’s the day after Thanksgiving, and we’ve officially entered the holiday season, we’ve got a roundup of stories about giving – and not-so-giving people.

Here are this week’s headlines:

1. A San Angelo woman wants to make sure every kid in her neighborhood has a gift for the holidays. But she’s not sinking a ton of cash into her gift-giving-goals – she’s knitting! Stores like Michaels and Yarn Craft have donated hundreds and hundreds of yards of yarn to help her knit gloves, hats, and scarves.

2. Forget a 20 percent tip – a generous customer left $750 for a Houston waiter. The reason? Ben, the waiter, was hoping to travel to Ireland to introduce his new baby, set to be born in January, to his family there. And the customer helped him get a head start.

3. Someone stole an 8-foot, 300-pound ornament from a Houston shopping center. Then a couple spotted the $7,000 Christmas decoration in a field and reported it. The ornament will be back in place in time for the shopping center’s Christmas party.

Which one is the lie? Listen in the player above to find out!
