How can you remember all that? I know I can't remember every single gift I ever got for Christmas.

At any rate, the best gifts I was ever given were a toy car that you drove around by pushing your feet on the floor and a Sesame Street playhouse.

Lots of clothes (mainly socks and underwear). I wasn't big on toys while growing up. More interested in science type stuff.
I do remember getting a Quija Board one year.

I also got (in a gift exchange in grade 3) a school memories book, full of stuff to fill out about school memories... who my best friends were, who the class clown was, etc. I wish I still had it.


And my dad got me a 60-pencil Prismacolor set when I was 8... I wish I had been a true artiost back then!

- 7 books (one religious one, presenting from a religious point of view how a wonderful miracle is a physical built of animals - what they are able to do thanks to their strength, good sense of smell and so on; Tom Sawyer's adventures, L.M. Montgomery's "A tangled web", Graham Masterton's collection of stories, a collections of stories for kids - it was called if I'm not wrong "Broca street tales", a book "A border" by one author from my country and which is discussed during Polish literature course here and a book for teenage girls about a girl called Lani who fell in love with a boy from her new school, Chase)
- Polish - German dictionary for children
- pyjamas (3x - when I was 6, 18 and 20 if I remember well)
- Barbie doll (I was 6 then)

Wow... I've gotten a lot of stuff, couldn't possibly remember it all.

Every year, I get a box of chocolate covered cherries, even though I can't eat them anymore. I usually end up bringing them to work to share.

Nothing- we just give each other gifts throughout the year for no particular reason. We don't celebrate christmas, although we did used to decorate the house with lights because the season was an excuse to do it. :wink: So, since everything was spread out I don't remember anything in particular. Probably a lot of DVDs, games, and books.
