What’s on your lists?

The Christmas holiday is no doubt the biggest gift holiday around. While many can rightly argue and point out that many people’s greed and expectations of materialistic things during this holiday can damper the true meaning of Christmas, I’d like to focus on the fun things that people ask for during the holiday season.

For example, my 11-year-old asked for a “genie,” yes a real live genie. Not sure if she needed a bottle for it or if she’d find room for the genie to live in her room but it was on her list.
There were many other things on her list but fortunately she knows that she isn’t getting all of them, especially since another item on the list was a llama.

I wonder what I would put on my list if I thought there were no limitations? World Peace? A better economy? Hmmm maybe a genie isn’t such a bad idea…

Have you seen any “fun” items on Christmas lists? Or do you recall any one thing that you put on your list from days gone by?

Share here and then let’s remember that Christmas is not really about the material gifts but about the gifts of family, friends, good health, and happiness

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
