That's Not What I Wanted

Hanukkah is now upon us and Christmas is less than two weeks away and it got me to thinking. What's the best and worst gift you've ever gotten for the holiday? I can't say what the best gift is, because I don't remember all of them, one does stand out. All I wanted was a game for my Nintendo called "Back To The Future II & III". This was in 1990, so I was 11-years-old. I opened my gift to find the game I wanted and I remember running around the house yelling "I believe in Santa, I believe in Santa." So I went to go play it and I hated it. The game was no fun. I also can't say what my worst gift was because I don't think I've ever gotten one. Except may clothes. No one likes clothes. But one of the oddest ones that stands out was last year my mom got me a S'mores/hot cocoa kit. Had the graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate, two packs of cocoa and two snowmen mugs. But I think this was more of a gag gift. At least I hope it was.
