As I said, I never asked Santa for a banjo when I was a child, but I did ask for a drum set that Santa did not bring. Mr. K wanted a Lionel train. He didn’t get that, either. Now, I still don’t have the drums but Mr. K did buy himself a Lionel train set. My friend, Bill, always wanted a ham for Christmas when he was a kid, which seemed to confuse the heck out of the mall Santa by the way. The reason Bill asked for a ham was because he didn’t and still doesn’t like turkey. So now that he’s an adult, every Christmas there’s always a big ham along with the turkey at Bill’s house.
We’d like to hear what Christmas gift you wished for as a child that Santa didn’t bring and were you like Mr. K and my friend, Bill? Once you grew up did you play Santa Claus for yourself?
