Christmas Disappointment

What was the one thing for christmas that you always wanted but never got and it still haunts you to this day? Tell it to me here in a comment.

I will tell you mine. There were 2 things. When I was a child, I wanted a Light Brite. For about 3 years I asked for a Light Brite and I just knew that I would get it the following year. It never came and I never got one. Everytime I see one in Walmart I think I should break down and buy one just for me. I would be able to get it out of my stystem. It is something I also let hang over my mothers' head...that she never got me a Light Brite. I just have to bring that up to her if we are in Walmart in the toy section.

The 2nd thing I never got and look back on with great regret is a pair of SHOES! Yes...shoes. When I was in college in 1978-1979 freshman year, Candies were in. I was a poor college student and just loved them. Candies were made in every color and they were high heeled. Boy I wanted some Candies. But I did not have the money for them. I did have a boyfriend that year and I hinted to him...no I told him...I wanted some Candies for christmas. Just those. He did not get them for me and the Candies wave came and went without me riding it.

So tell me...what was the thing you always wanted but never got?

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!

I really wanted the Star Wars Millennium Falcon. The cool thing is my 5 year old daughter is into Star Wars now, so I might just get if for her for CHRISTmas so I can play with it. The other think I wanted was an Atari 2600. After a while I realized my parents were never going to get me the things I really wanted, so I would just ask for money and buy it myself.

I do not recall ever being disappointed at Christmas unless I count the year Santa didn't come for me. I had turned 13 the May before. There was something under the tree for my younger brother, but not for me. I know it was silly of me. This may be the year I am disappointed. I am hoping for money.

I loved Candies! I would get a pair to go with every new outfit.

Rod....it is okay to buy the toy for yourself...i am going to get the lite bright just for me.

Joanne: I am jealous of your candies! I had a year when santa did not come for me either and I was crushed..I am still crushed when I think about it as I got gifts for everyone else. This happened to me due to an emotionally abusive mother...it was her way of hurting me and it was done on purpose. After that I always for christmas for myself first regardless of what anyone else got me
