Some of the threads made me think of this. I posted about a gift a client gave, my favorite from a work situation. My favorite gift ever was an a.m. portable radio that my "rock star" uncle gave me. My neighbor got the exact same one. I thought I was the luckiest kid ever. (he was a radio dj and in bands in North Dakota, lol... he was famous there though, smile). It was surely not the biggest or most expensive gift I got, and I always had nice Christmases..... I have several friends who are Jewish and they had some really fun times too, we joined them often. One of my best friends is Muslim... I love her family gathering stories. any holiday story will do..... Just trying to get in the mood. Last year I barely got my tree up.
