Stilly River Sage BS: Christmas Toys you remember (38) RE: BS: Christmas Toys you remember 22 Dec 20


I remember very little from childhood xmas gift episodes, but then, no one ever gave me a model train. There were art supplies, some I still have (beautifully colored chalk, crayons, pencils, etc.). Sealing wax from my cousins, the post office probably hates that stuff. When I was a teen there was one year that Mom was really strapped for cash so the four of us were presented with the choice - the usual bigger meal for xmas, and token gifts, or nothing fancy for dinner and a larger gift. We all chose the fancy dinner, and that year my gift was a shiny big Capricorn necklace (not my sign, but whatever) in a gold-colored metal. That thing hung around in a music box, never worn, until I told the story to my daughter a couple of years ago and asked if she could use it as part of her various costumes? She happily added it to her stash.
