Norway Wants to Gift Finland a Mountain

'Tis the season for giving, and a group in Norway has proposed shifting the country's borders slightly in order to give the neighboring Finland a mountain, the Halti, which is 4,479 feet tall. The gift actually has nothing to do with the holiday season—it would be to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Finland's independence in 2017—but it would still be especially embarrassing for the Finns since they only got Norway a Starbucks gift card for its last birthday.
