Christmas Wish List
In August I was trying to make up a list of priority books I needed to read ASAP instead of putting off, and then my mind started to wander to other book-related things, as it does, and I found myself making a Christmas wish list.
When I was in college, my roommate would always make up an elaborate list and email to her mom. This list was sent to all the relatives, and she generally ended up with basically everything on her list. They all worked it out, and it all worked out for her. Nice, right?
So I started thinking about my aunt’s family. When she got married, she got to become part of her husband’s family Christmas tradition. Everyone makes a list of what they want, they draw names, and you have to buy $100 worth of stuff on the list of the person whose name you drew.
These are fantastic ideas! I will admit I always received clothing items from my stepgrandmother, and they were always multiple sizes too small I(before gift receipts became a norm) when my brothers and stepcousins were getting things they actually wanted or would use. It was a bummer.
It’s also a bummer when you “grow up” and no longer receive Christmas gifts. What’s up with that? Mom, you can’t convince the new stepgrandkids that Santa exists if I don’t get anything for Christmas.
Since Black Friday is just around the corner in the States, I thought this was an appropriate time to share this post. I mean, some people are already plotting and planning their Black Friday rounds.
So as you are planning your own Christmas wish lists, here are the three things on my list for Christmas:
- The Harry Potter series
- The Face on the Milk Carton series
- Disney’s Beauty and the Beast on DVD
