It's hard to decide which was my favorite Christmas present when I was a kid. I always loved getting dolls. One Christmas I got a nurse's hat, cap, and doctor kit that I loved. Another Christmas I got a majorette uniform, white boots, and baton that I also loved. And another Christmas I got a puppy that I named Lulu after my uncle Louis (my dad's friend). When I was a teenager, I got a radio inside a stuffed toy.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
