Christmas gifts - 12/26/12 01:00 AM

When you were a child , was there a Christmas where you got what you wanted?

I remember when I was 11 or. 12. I so wanted a chemistry set or even a microscope. I had left catalogs open to those pages time often so my parents would know. I even had talked about them.

Alas, it did not happen. Can't remember what my parents got me. Nothing great.

How about youse
