holiday favorites: christmases past

Marta My favorite gift of all time? A Casper the friendly ghost doll—that talked—when I was 8. And last year my husband gave a shearling throw.
Judy A guitar and a madly mod outfit when I was 7. A Barbie convertible and playing “Santa” handing out all the gifts on Christmas Eve.
Anna A ‘crimp and curl’ Cabbage Patch kid.
Raymond A James Bond/007 briefcase—with all the spy stuff inside!—when I was 10, a red tricycle when I was 4, my 1st trip to Little Cayman, cards from my mom.
Joyce My sisters and I got a pinball machine to share…”Captain Fantastic Elton John and the Brown Dirt Cowboy”. We played it all night long and wouldn’t go to sleep..tilt city.
Sara I think I was in 4th or 5th grade and I got a teal blue 10-speed bike—a dream come true.
Sandy A dual cassette player so I could record my favorite songs from the radio and make mix tapes for all my friends and family. It was the gift that kept on giving.
Ryan The first Nintendo system ever—don’t remember how old I was, probably like a year ago—Transformers too…and maybe Pong…
Megan My play kitchen and Easy-Bake oven…seriously it’s been down hill since then!
Sandra Getting my ears pierced when I was 12, Christmas music mix tapes and an adopted Polar Bear—Pookie.
April Airline tickets to Amsterdam!
Curtis I remember being so excited about getting a tape recorder and a microphone when I was really little—I was sure pop stardom was in my future.
