Merry Christmas

I remember one, very poor year, when the kids were small. I think I had 50 bucks for 3 kids. Went to walmart, and got cheap, 1 buck dealies- plastic trucks, balloons, cheap board games. Got to the counter, and the bag boy says 'nice stocking stuffers'. I was like, thats the gifts. Not everyone has money. Luckily, my kids were young enough that it wasn't quality, it was quantity. and since they hadn't gotten so much as a bag of balloons in months, it was bounty beyond hope.

I miss christmas turkey. They're just starting to get halal turkeys in now, but our butcher still gets a glazed, deer in the headlights look when you mention turkeys. Some day I hope to ask for buffalo or camel, just to watch him cry.
