Your Christmas Wish List
November 30, 2008 2:44pm CST
Each year, my ex-husband makes our kids write a letter to Santa even though they are 22 and 25 years old already. He then tries to get them at least the biggest thing on their wish list for Christmas. I tend to guess at something they'd like based on what I know about them. Would you rather tell someone what you want for Christmas, or be surprised by what they give you?

I'm older than your children and I also still make out a Christmas wish list. I love surprises, so I always put on the list many more things than I know I will get and send it to all those people who buy me gifts so I do still get surprises 'cos I don't know whose getting what off the list.

I agree - I love being surprised, too. Two years ago, a group of friends online - people I never expected to buy me a gift - put their heads together and bought me a down lap blanket. It arrived just two days before Christmas - and I've used it every day since. It's something I would never have thought to ask for, but I LOVE it.
