So last night my better half and I are having our Xmas; a glass of wine, fire burning, opening presents. So I give her one of her presents and I couldn't recall what was in the box. This happens when you give multiple gifts. She opens the box, fumbles thru the brightly colored tissue paper I put in there as I wait for her to get her gift out.

I forgot to put a gift in the box. I gave her a box of tissue paper.

Back in the day. 72 or 73. My friend Blanton threw a bottle rocket at a cop car. It poped right at the window, We had to haul ass and hide for an hour before we could come out.

This goes back to 85 or 86 when it was the first XMAS our 1st born was old enough to believe in Santa. So on Xmas eve he put out a glass of milk and some cookies for Santa and went to bed. A little later my wife said she was going to bed. I told her that I'd put his gifts out so he would think Santa came sometime during the night and to be sure to wake me up before he got up Xmas morning. I stayed up kind of late having some Xmas cheer and listening to some music. Right before I went to bed I got his Xmas presents out of a closet where we had them hidden. The next morning my wife wakes me up and says where's the presents? They are not under the tree!! I thought for a moment....then said "Dang...I thought something didn't seem quite right when I went around the house hiding his presents behind the furniture".

My youngest daughter has two stories. The first was when she was around 8. As usual money was tight and my wife had to do a lot of last minute shopping. Toys R Us was a madhouse. My daughter wanted ice skates. Rose frantically tried to find a pair in her size. The section of the store was in shambles. She finds them, buys them and brings them home. Siobhan opens them up Christmas morning delighted until she realizes they are two left feet skates. We were able to return them.

This one isn't so dumb, but I think it's funny. This time $ wasn't so tight and we were able to buy the presents ahead of time. Siobhan was 10. Rose hid all the presents. As Christmas drew near every time an ad came on TV for a present Rose bought, Siobhan would turn around and tell us she'd really like one of those. Rose was quite proud of herself. About a year or two later she fessed up and said she rooted around and found the printed receipt with a description of all the toys Rose bought.

Kids. Can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em.

How many "glasses of wine" did have while you were "wrapping gifts?"

Bought my (then live-in) girlfriend a microwave.

HUGE mistake - the gift and the "relationship."

It was the first Christmas after I was paroled. The whole family was at my mom's place in Shasta County. She asked me if I was staying out of trouble and my reply was "of course mother" I had came as a spur-o-moment decision and only had limited time and funds for gifts. The knucklehead that I am rushed my giftwrapping and somehow got the gifts for my mother and nephew switched. The boxes were close in size. My mom opened hers and found a killer stainless stell chamber pipe. In front of everybody. I just acted normal and said "looks like Robbie might wanna trade fhat for the perfume I gave him"

My next door neighbor and I are in the backyard on the first nice day of weather two Marches ago. I knew they had fallen on hard times. So sort of as an ice breaker I asked him how their Christmas was (I hadn't seen him a lot last year!). "Great!" he says, "Mellody bought me a really nice new camera with a zoom lens and nice bag".

"Wow," I said. "That's a great gift. You must have been really good to her in return, eh?"

"Oh yeah," he says. "Her old iron skillets were about shot. So I got her a really nice new set."

Maybe not my dumbest moment on Christmas . . .

And lemme guess - when you asked him for it later he told you his parents "found" it and "they took it...."

Not on Christmas, but once I left a BRAND NEW fat oz bag of Redbud on the DINING ROOM TABLE. Why? Who the hell Knows? I was VERY buzzed....and the next day my Mom says in a very disgusted, exasperated tone, "Well your BROTHER left his POT on the dining room table last night. I guess he got it because it was gone this morning." "Wow! I guess I'll have to have a little talk with him...."

No, I didn't take one for my bro....

When I was about 6 or 7, I got a fire truck for Xmas--had lights and siren, but didn't come with batteries, and my parents hadn't bought any. So I pulled one of the lead wires out and stuck it in the wall-socket. Made a nice big flash and knocked my little butt across the room! Never got a chance to play with the truck before I destroyed it....

I did....actually I found it there the next morning but my mother assumed it was his and I didn't bother to disabuse her of that notion....

This occurred about 34 years ago. Amazing I can remember ANYTHING from that long ago, especially considering the circumstances....

Skinny-dipping. The weather was unseasonably warm ... the creek, however was not. Yeah, there was shrinkage. Some of it apparently irreversable.

When my brother and I were young, we woke up at 3 or 4 in the morning and decided to go see if Santa had come yet. The living room was full of presents! We decided to just open one and go back to bed. It was a bike Christmas, so there were banana seats, horns, lights, etc. We opened one, and then kept opening..... until my parents heard us and came into the room telling us to get our asses back to bed.

They weren't real happy with us that Christmas.........

I do not ahve any ,umm, after parole stories, pot stories and never rearragned Christmas lights in an odd way, I just cannot stop laughing here. Ya' ll, just too funny.
This Christmas was a frits for me in that after 30 years of washing out and cleaning out a turkey and cooking a turkey, this year, I don't know how, at the bottom part of the turkey, something bad was left there.
The turkey cavity was cleaned. Washed out with waer running through end to end. This thing was left like under the skin there.
Yuck. But I scooped it up before the turkey was cooked . We ate that turkey.

Back in like '89 or '90 I worked for a company that gave us Turkeys for THANKSGIVING. Being a bachelor at the time (which I still am) I threw it in the trunk of my car and forgot about it.

I was invited to friend's house for Christmas dinner and my contribution was the Turkey. Yes, my friend knew how long I'd had it (he worked for the same company) but I'm not sure his wife did....keep in mind I lived in Chicago at the time and it was FREEZING from Thanksgiving all the way through X-mas, barely getting above freezing more than one or two days. I don't think it ever thawed in the trunk.

The three of us ate it and all of us survived. Actually it was pretty good.

I was rather ungrateful for a present my parents gave me one time. Rather than be adult about it, I voiced my displeasure (I was 16 and thought I knew everything). My parents said "Ahh... okay. We'll return it then." and left it at that. I still feel bad thinking about it... as I should. Live and learn.
