    Have you ever received coal for Christmas?

    Legend has it that Santa Claus gives naughty kids a lump of coal in their stocking. Have you ever been given any? Even as a joke?

    No. The weirdest thing I got during Christmas was a teddy bear which says "love me" when you press its chest. What a creepy gift! hahaha

    No, but I gave away a piece of coal as a Christmas present one year.

    I have never received coal, but I have gifted it :-).  My boss's son for three years straight didn't even get me a card for the holiday so one year I decided to mess with him and wrapped a piece of coal in a nice box and handed it to him.  I knew he would open it right away and the look on his face was absolutely priceless!  His mother (who I also worked with) thought it was hysterical and vowed to gag gift it to someone else that year.  I did eventually that day give him a real present.

    No, but I am certain that I deserved it a time or two. I can only think that my parents took pity on me and practiced excellent negotiation skills with Santa.

    Not real coal. Just that nasty coal shaped gum. Always hurts my teeth and tastes entirely strange...

    One year for my families 10 dollar "White Elephant" game I bought two big bags of BBQ charcoal. It ended up being one of the most popular gifts that people kept stealing.
