    Well my first thought is certainly not "adsense safe," which apparently refers to the forum now too!

    A BB Gun and a Lionel train in the fifties, and a really cool set of cap guns! My most memorable Christmas as a kid.
    As an adult, the joyous smiles on the children Christmas morning.

    A moosehead.  The one gift that's better to receive than to give.

    I don' think  I ever had a bad Christmas as a kid--much to the credit of my folks.  I know I recall a few Christmases when we went to a city north of where we lived and stop in at a special record store and my parents would buy me a f*cking stack of albums that I wanted and half of them I would get for Christmas and the other half I would get for my birthday I february. Mind you, there were OTHER presents for both days, too!
    As an adult, having a moments peace and a Christmas a couple years ago when I had all three of my kids under one roof if only for a few hours. 
    (Oh sorry.  I know i should probably say some hot lovin' from a woman, too, or some of y'all might be disappointed in me!)

    When I graduated from university, the economy was not very good.  I had been applying for work for about a month without much luck.  Then, on Christmas Eve, the phone rang and I received a job offer for my first "real" job.  That was one of the best gifts.

    Years later, when my children were really young, I would stay up all night on Christmas Eve, putting up the tree and decorating it, wrapping the gifts, placing them under the tree and of course, stuffing their stockings.  I felt great joy when they woke in the morning to a fully transformed room and having them believe that Santa had really come.  Their bright, sparkling eyes, big smiles and excited laughter always gave, and will give, me the greatest gift every year.
