Just taking a brief break from politics here.
I saw that the Toy Testing Council has just released its latest report for the most sought-after toys for 2007.
It took me back to the days when I would rush out to the library to check the report and then hunt down those toys for our kids before the shelves were empty. We knew Christmas would be a disaster if Santa didn't deliver the right toys under the tree, and the Toy Report was usually a good indicator of what they'd be asking for. I always thought it best to think ahead of the pack at Christmas.
Anyway, the Toy Report release brought back a lot of memories, and I thought it might be fun to throw out a question regarding what was your favourite Christmas gift, or what was the one that one of your children seemed to enjoy the most.
In our house the Cabbage Patch Kids were huge. It was a cloak and dagger mission to find them when they first came out. I remember hearing about parents scuffling over them as they were placed on the shelves. We managed to snag a couple for our kids, but it was brutal work.
Any other fond memories out there? I'll make the eggnog.
