The Best Gifts We Have Ever Received for Christmas
There are 2 things that come to mind when I think about the best Christmas gift I ever received. This was back in the 1970s. There was a lever hockey game that my friends and I would play and I wanted that so bad. Once I received it, my buddy Mike and I played that so much we wore out the plastic on the levers. The second most memorable gift was receiving a game system called Intellivision from my father. My friends and I would stay up until 3AM in the morning playing a hockey game on the Intellivision system. It really makes me smile thinking about those old memories.
The best gift I ever received was a trip to California. We went to the Redwoods, the Coast and all the other fun areas of Northern California. Getting to see all that natural beauty and spending time with family was great. It’s a trip I will always remember.

When I think back at the best gift I ever received, it’s actually a 2-part gift. It was the year that the Ipod Video and XBOX360 came out. Both of those items were super hard to find. However, my grandparents were able to get in line at their local store and purchase both the XBOX360 and Ipod Video. I’ll always remember that Christmas because of having something that was hard to find and just the wow factor!

When I was a kid, the Playstation Portable (PSP) came out and I remember it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. Unfortunately, my parents thought it was too expensive and asked me to save up for it. So I spent the next several months saving and right around the holidays I had just enough money to buy a PSP. I asked my parents to take me to the store, but they said to wait after Christmas. Sure enough, on Christmas day, my parents surprised me with a brand new PSP and they also appreciated the hard work I put in to save. It was not only the best surprise but also the lesson I learned that will always be a great memory.

I come from a family with 8 siblings so Christmas was always mayhem. When I was 10 years old, I received a snare drum and it had a stand up symbol that went with it. I pulled the drum out and I couldn’t have been happier. My parents let me play that drum for exactly 30 seconds and that was it. Then they took me to the backyard where I spent the rest of the day playing the drums all by myself. It was 35 degrees at the time in Richmond, Virginia where I grew up. I remember that like it was yesterday and I’m 60 years old. My parents also remember it too but for different reasons.
