    When I was young everyone wanted the Atari 2600 game console; yes, I'm that old! *L* The same way the kids want Playstation 3 this Xmas.

    Anyways - Under the tree was a box big enough for an Atari and it weighed correctly. I was really happy knowing that I was getting it.

    Well - in the box, to my disappointment, was a couple of volumes of encyclopedia; the rest of the volumes were hidden in the house. When I opened the box and saw a couple of books, I began to cry. I didn't mean to, I was so happy and expected the game console that the tears were simply a uncontrollable reaction.

    I never got the Atari 2600 - ever.

    But I still have the set of encyclopedia in my office. I've had it for over 25 years!

    Best Xmas present ever.

    I had a little pink elephant stuffed animal that I loved. She was pretty worn out. When I was 6, on Christmas morning while I was still in bed, my elephant felt different but it was dark and I couldn't see it. I went in the bathroom and I had a brand new elephant in my hands. It was all plush and clean. I realized that Santa replaced my old elephant with a new one. It freaked me out a little that Santa went into my bedroom, but he had a good reason. I was so excited! I was still young enough to be fascinated by Santa.
