I think I got them all at the same time. It was orgasmic.

Once a frind gave me a five pack of beer and an eighteen pack of smokes.

I would'a loved that. Space-happy as a kid, and still am.

Didn't know it at the time, but the best were just having my whole family around. We are a riot when you get us all together, usually bellies are sore from laughing so hard, and a whipped cream or deviled egg fight breaks out at some point.

Now? I haven't spoken to my mom since my grandmother died, and it's very unlikely I'll see any of them in the foreseeable future. Maybe when my bro gets out of the Navy in May, but I'm not expecting an invitation. Life beat the family out of my family.

I was 13 (1970). Grandparents got me a Radio Shack cassette recorder. Fairly sure it had a major impact on my choice of career most of my adult life. Last year Wifey gave me a Nikon digital camera. Not a $1000 model, but still cool as hell w/more bells and whistles than I know what to do with.

When I was about twelve my father died.

That Christmas my neighbor Ray Bushey gave my brother and myself each a Harrington and Richardson Topper 20 gauge shotgun.

It wasn't so much the fact that he gave me the shotgun but the implied gift of having an adult to go hunting with since my dad was gone.

Still have it 50 years later.

It's a toss up. One year I got the Lego Mindstorms kit from my wife. That was awesome.  The next year she got me some very sexy lingerie in her size.  She had remembered a comment I had once made.  "A guy buying lingerie as a gift is really being selfish. He's buying it for himself."  Too bad she went completely farking bat-shiat insane a couple of years later.

When I was about 10, my grandmother gave us a piano. I friggin LOVED playing it, taking some lessons, etc. It's what first got me into music. And, since music is a fantastic gift, that was the coolest thing I ever got on Christmas.

Thanks, Nana!!

I was 15. It set me on a lifetime obsession.

/40 now
//still loves me some Zelda games

One year I got a GB and Link's Awakening.  I played the shiat out of that.

I'm trying to justify getting a DS so that I can play "A Link Between Worlds."

New babby makes that kind of a low-priority item. =/


It helps the new baby by keeping you sane, and as a DS automatically pauses when you close the lid it's an ideal handheld for people who need to be prepared to take care of a new baby's needs at a moment's notice.

Back on topic, my favourite Chanukah gift was a Capsela building set much like this one.

It was ACE. Topped only by the Commodore 64 I received for my birthday one year.

The best part was taking it out in the snow to play.


If I remember right, I got it AND the Falcon the same Christmas.

Other than that, the 5-disc CD player (and the 100 a few years later, just before MP3s took off) were awesome as well.

Great schooling came with it!

But you're right. It wasn't a Christmas gift. We weren't very Jesusey.

A TI99-4A in 1982 and the original NES in I think it was....1987.... Fark I can barely remember that far back, but playing Hunt the Wumpus was awesome.

An electric slotted race track. This was back when the cars were about 3-4 inches long and it all came with rebuild parts like brushes and shiat. I'm 51 and was about 9-10 when I got this. It was AWESOME.

Yeah, I had something similar.  You could switch the cars from the long straightaway to the cloverleaf.  I saw it in the Sears Wishbook, begged for it, and Santa Claus delivered.

+100 to your neighbor. That certainly made an impression on you.

I never asked for it. It just magically appeared under the tree. I never knew it existed. We were up til daylight that Christmas. My dad and two older brothers liked it as much as I did.

I so wanted a slot car set when I was a kid.  They got me a farking train set instead.  Years later (I was in my twenties by then) I was out doing some errands and realized I still wanted a slot car set.  So I went to Toys-R-Us and bought the best damn set they carried.

Oh, and this from my daughter. She was 12 y/o, knew I was a big fan, and saved her babysitting money to give me this.

Arguably one of the bset Zelda games.  When I first heard about it, I thought it was just a re-hash of "A Link to the Past", but it's really a completely different game. I feel I can speak with some authority on that since I just finished ALTTP on the Wii virtual console...

One christmas, I didn't think my little sister had been very good, and didn't think santa was going to bring her the tea set she wanted, so I asked for one, too. I figured I could giver her mine, since she wasn't going to get one. We both got tea sets.

Then next year, I asked for a GI Joe set, with the machine gun on a tripod, poncho, canteen, knife, belt, and everything. I also asked for a lever action toy rifle cap gun that fired plastic bullets.
My dad was so happy, I got all of it and more.

/hot like a sword in a hip pocket.

Not only was it playing right into my love of robots, it was the year after I got the worst present ever.  A relative gave me a pack of toilet paper.  Who thinks it's funny to give a 9-year old toilet paper?

As an adult?  If the pieces fall into place, by this weekend I will be a homeowner!

Optimal_Illusion: A relative gave me a pack of toilet paper.  Who thinks it's funny to give a 9-year old toilet paper?


See, in my family, we would have responded by using said pack of toilet paper on the relative's house. "See, you wanted a white Christmas!"

/crossing my fingers for your house. Our own place (doesn't even have to be a house) is definitely at the top of my very short Christmas list

It was 9 years ago when I received total consciousness and cosmic understanding of the universe.  So I've got that going for me, which is nice.
