This time of year I am always asked by my parents to “make a list” of things I want for Christmas. They still do this. And as I get older, I find it harder and harder to think of things that I want or need to put on that list. Why is that?? When I was little, I remember me and my sister would make these extremely long lists of things we wanted Santa to bring us. And we always got most of it, too! (Thanks mom and dad – I realize now that I’m older how spoiled we were as children.) I guess as I get older it’s harder for me to make Christmas lists because Christmas has become more to me than just presents.
So, I was thinking recently about some of my most memorable childhood Christmas presents and couldn’t help but take a long, much-needed stroll down memory lane. Back when things were much simpler and the toys and music were way cooler than what kids have now. Here are some of my favorite things I got for Christmas from childhood:
NKOTB Step By Step VHS
Talking Alf Doll
The Fireball Island Game
Cabbage Patch Doll
One of the following tapes:
Oh childhood, how I miss you! And those are just a few of the things I remember getting. What are some of your favorite things you got for Christmas when you were little?
