Advent Calendar: Christmas Gifts

December 10 – Christmas Gifts
What were your favorite gifts, both to receive and to give? Are there specific gift-giving traditions among your family or ancestors?

I must have been quite the nerd as a kid.  I know it.  I suppose I still am.:)

One of the gifts that I remember as being amongst my favorite was a full-sized globe that had a light in it.  I seriously thought that was the coolest thing on earth.  Come to think of it, I wish I still had it.  I’d plug it in right now and stare at all of the places I want to travel.:)

As I got a bit older, I always did the shopping with my mom and most of the surprise gifts were gone.  I was usually there when she bought my present. :)No anticipation for Christmas Day, huh?  I guess that’s what happens when you’re the oldest.  You get recruited into shopping and present wrapping and envelope addressing duty.

    I too like Globes as gifts. It remains useful as well…ReplyCancel
