Washington (CNN) - Vice President Joe Biden let it slip that he and President Obama do not exchange Christmas gifts.
But is it a case of Bah Humbug at the White House? Well, not exactly.
"We exchange birthday gifts, we don't exchange Christmas gifts," the Vice President told the entertainment website TMZ.com Wednesday while on Capitol Hill.
When asked if he had bought a present for the President, Biden joked, "Are you kidding me? He's shopping for me."
He then explained that while they don't exchange gifts on this holiday, they usually buy each other birthday gifts. He said "it's hard" to pick out a gift for the man who sits in the Oval Office."
But he added, "Since we both love golf we usually give each other something to do with golf."
"I gave him a little neat golf bag last time," he continued. "And he gave me this really cool deal – where you practice putting, it's a little gadget he gave me. It's really great."
