    If you are exchanging presents, and are expecting one or two for yourself this Holiday (Christmas 2015), what would be YOUR Christmas List?

    Meaning presents, toys, "stuff", food, tickets, money etc... please, no "I want Peace for the World" Christmas List. Nothing wrong in that, but this is pure "materialism" please!

    Here is my list... in order of priority:

    (1) I want a record player, i.e. turntable, to play LPs and 45's. One of those "box like" record players that look like mini suitcases. A gaudy pastel blue one, not black. So I can play records - yes they now sell vinyl again, in many book stores, brand new presses (re-release), I saw Sgt. Pepper's just the other day.

    (2) A two shot Derringer pistol .22 Magnum, one of those tiny pocket types, would love a white handle. But I think a Derringer might be illegal in California since it is so easy to conceal, you could put it under your top hat it is so small. But my wife won't let me get one, however, since I "have plenty of guns already, waste of money". But they are so, well, "tiny"! But forget about it, my wife would throw a fit.

    (3) A good microscope. To look at disgusting little itsy-bitsy things like germs or bugs.

    You ask for home made ice creams,rights? I did not go crazy enough to eat ice cream on the shelves in a super market.

    Honestly, there's nothing I want that they can get me (too expensive). If it was up to me, I would ask them to give that money to charity. My husband is the only one that understands, he did this for me last year and is still ongoing (WWF, Amur leopards). But that's not something people take for an answer so I had to come up with a few things that would be ok:

    -Books, a mixture of fantasy, sci-fi and manga.
    -Video games, there was a few in the past 2 or so years I haven't got and they looked good. I usually only get the stuff I *really* want.

    That's it. I couldn't think of anything else.

    If I could, I would ask for money, since I want to get some Japanese study books, the set is about £100. But most people in my husband's family don't like to give money as it's "impersonal". I disagree but, whatever.

    My biggest wish for Xmas.....That the tradition of giving of presents would disappear.
    It's a really demanding social convention which I don't live up to.
    I hate Xmas for this reason.
    But if the must continue, gifts should be no more than tokens, eg, a candy bar.
    Then it would be easy to please, with little risk.

    To anyone expecting a gift from me...here you go!

    A new computer to replace this old workhorse or a book on mythology.

    A Fender Reissue Twin Reverb with an American Standard plugged into it. Or some Lincoln Logs.

    My van fixed.
    A nice diary.
    New pair of high heeled boots.

    I could go on quite a bit in the realm of the van. Things I need and are practical but I often get scolded for than kind of thought. Hubby gets aggravated when I ask for things for the house like skillets or step ladder and things. Says I don't think of nice things for myself. I think anything which makes my day easier is a nice thing for myself. :p

    Exchanging ice-creams would be a jolly good idea, though I suppose then some people would insist on a large cornet. ;)

    I had a Red Rider.

    I never shot a bird, nor any animal, nor my eye.

    But I did shoot a can. But I liked my bow and arrows, better. Never shot a bird with my arrows. No animal.

    Actually, you made me think. I will add bow and arrows to my list. An English Long Bow. But my wife will say that is also a waste of money. I bet I get a record player, though!

    Bow and arrows might be fun, I would definitely have those if I had a place to practice.
