Remember that time you got a taxidermy beaver from your uncle Ross? What about the shiny new car you got from your parents? What are the best and worst gifts you have ever received? Many of us are excited about the wrapped boxes and bags under the tree. Join our conversation about the gifts that made you cry (from happiness) and other gifts that made you cringe.

The best gift I can remember is non – material. I always knew Christmas was about Jesus’ birth, but one Christmas, years ago, I truly realized this in my heart and that was the best feeling ever.
I remember complaining about a pair of gloves when I was little, but my dad reminded me that Christmas was not all about gifts, it’s about giving and the care that someone had that gave me that gift.
I think there isn’t such a thing as a “good” giver, you are either a giver or not a giver and calling yourself a “good” giver defeats the purpose of the gift.
