Countdown to Christmas #11: Presents

Presents! Whether you like to give them, receive them, or (like most of us) both, there's no denying that the modern holiday season is centered around presents.


A couple years ago I wrote about some of my favorite childhood Christmas presents; what are some of yours?

  1. we got a ping pong table for christmas once. We opened a little box and it had a piece of paper which had instructions to find another box with additional instructions, all leading us finally to the basement and the ping pong table. It was awesome

    That sounds like fun. My dad used to write clues for our Easter baskets, each inside a little egg and leading us to the next. It was tons of fun.

    The point of this post wasn't just to rub it in. Honest.
