Story Time: The Ultimate Christmas List


It’s crazy to think that Christmas is only three weeks away and that 2015 is winding down! Anyway, in lieu of the holiday season, I wanted to share a Christmas story that my mom seems to tell just about everyone she runs into this time of year. We’ve all made a Christmas list at one point or another, so I’m sure you will enjoy this one!

I was about six or seven years old, Christmas was quickly approaching and my parents were bracing for the infamous Christmas lists from my brother and I. In preparation my dad challenged my brother and I one afternoon as we were driving through town.

He said, “This year for Christmas I do not want to hear about ever plastic gadget you would like to have or have seen in a magazine or TV. I want you to really think about what you’d like to have.” Fair enough, that’s a good challenge for young kids, and I’m sure they were hoping it would diminish the items like the remote controlled TYCO Motorcycle or a Gameboy with a slew of games of course.
