What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever received?

Jackie Briggs: I remember when I got my first brand-new snowboard. I literally dropped to my knees and cried. Then I pulled myself together, wiped my tears, and asked where the bindings were.

Derek Carlisle:  A Sears Robuck electric guitar with built-in amp. Snuck in the closet to see what the ma bought and was told on by the sis. Had to wait till the next year to get it on account of me ma teachin’ me a lesson.

Kolbie Stonehocker: My Polly Pocket fairyland playset I got when I was about 7. It came with two fairy dolls, and inside the pink star shape was a moving Ferris wheel, hot-air balloon and dance floor. Best of all, it lit up when it was opened. When I found it under the Christmas tree, I was complete.

Susan Kruithof: A stuffed Winnie the Pooh bear. He was my life-long friend. He protected me from monsters under the bed, worked as a convenient extra 2 inches to step on to reach the light switch, and understood me when no one else did. He’s 42 years old. A most loved possession that I still have.

Elly Green: My American Girl doll, Molly. I loved her so much. I still have her to this day, and now let my daughter play with her. Ah, the circle of life!

Alissa Dimick: Last year my husband got me a sewing machine and everything I will ever need to sew anything. Crappy tablecloths, blankets and burp cloths have been making their way out to my friends and family; one day you will all have matching dresses.

Scott Renshaw: Let’s see, my wife and kids both regularly read this space, so here’s the part where I say “every gift is wonderful because of the love behind it” and you don’t get me in trouble.
