I got a dog with only 3 legs one year for Christmas. I named him "Trey". Don't know if that was my best or my worse present. He didn't stick around for long...he ran off. Or should I say he hobbled off. Three to One odds he's living in Florida with an old retired couple.

My worst christmas ever was my first year of nurses training. had to work 3-11 shift on Christmas eve. At 11pm someone had a bottle of something or other, I had a wee drink, got drunk, staggered back to the residence, opened my gifts and cried my eyes out. I got 2 pr. of pj's and a dressing gown. How glamorous!!!! Just what I needed. Worst Christmas eve ever. Worst gift. Best gift, an engagement ring from my good man. This year he got me a gold necklace. Things have changed for the better!!!!!! Yeh!!!

A frisbie - three years in a row - from my Uncle when I was in first, second, and third grades.

My best gift was a stick. I played and played with that stick until one day, it just whittled away to nothing, and then my worst gift was a different stick. My dad got ahold of it and used it in a wrong way behind the woodshed when he found out I whittled away the other stick.

The best gift has to be my happiness and health and that of my husband, our children, our aging parents, siblings and their families.

This thread took a weird turn there for a while... That was interesting to read. I never even thought of the communal serving utensils or the communal pens. I think about light switches and hand rails and door knobs though. My best gift(s) this year were four books from my Amazon wishlist. They're books that the library wouldn't order for various reasons (independent publisher, published too long ago, etc). I've been wanting to read them for a while now and I'm excited that I finally get to!

Best - probably the recent birth of my second child.Worst? Everything else was tied for a distant second.
