Default what Christmas gifts are your asking for? (non cards)

Just seeing what everyone is asking for this year. My wife and parents are giving me pressure for some sort of list and I have nothing on it.

I am asking for the following:

an uninterupted nap where the entire house is silent
$250,000 all in small bills

Actually, I am asking for the same things I do every year:

Pilot G2 .5 pens
gift cards
a book (haven't decided which one yet)

I am pretty boring sometimes.

Nothing haha. Haven't celebrated Christmas in years, that being said I'll probably still try to buy gifts for my family.

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones.

$300 is pricey, but they are so cool.

Why do teach our kids to not let strangers in the house yet talk about how santa can break and enter into the house in the middle of the night and that is fine.

Also the song talks about santa watching over you year round, how creepy is that?
grow up bro

A new golf bag. Old thing is falling apart.

I'd ask for a Christmas without the in-laws, but alas, that will never happen .

I don't like asking for gifts, but I like buying them! That said, my parents and brother buy me something anyway and this is what I have thought up so far:

- Subscription to, or a couple magazines of, Maclean's and Toronto Life
- Paid of ear buds
- A gift certificate to Amazon for my Kindle

My wife is getting me a walk behind snowthrower. The snowthrower I attach to the front of my lawn tractor is getting to be more of a pain the older I get.

I want a 1/2 pound bag of that really expensive coffee made from beans that are eaten then pooped out by some little animal. I could look it up for more specifics but you get the idea..

Actually I just look at the whole picture. I simply would like to know (and not just from you, everyone that has kids and celebrates christmas) why that is to let them sit on a strangers lap.

Whoa bro, that's my bro you're talking to bro. You better watch what you say to my bro, bro. I've got some bro's that are scary bro's, you feel me bro? Stop bro-ing around bro. Start acting like a real bro, like me and my bro's act like bro's.

Bro.

I mean why do you shake a strangers hand? why do you trust a stranger to groom your dog or cut your hair ... the list goes on and on. You must have trust issues.

It is all about tradition. Your child believes with all their heart in something greater than this shitty world we live in. A man who is good hearted and brings you presents and keeps tabs on whether you have been naughty or nice. Why would you not want to let them have that? Believe me if it wasn't a huge tradition I probably wouldn't be interested but it has been going on for centuries and I am willing to keep the tradition going because I don't see anything wrong with it.

If the "santa" gets a boner under his robe that is his own sick twisted problem. It isn't like after my kid sits on his lap I am going to let him take him or her back to the north pole for some show and tell.
