it’s time to celebrate Chanukah! Why yes, Adam Sandler’s song is one of many that we play during the Festival of Lights at our house. For the first night on Wednesday, we put on the Pandora Hanukkah Station to see what new songs were there. I was surprised that a lot of the songs were all in Hebrew – yikes!
After we lit the candles, the boys received a gift. I will spare you with the comments that we received after handing them their presents. Suffice to say the little guy was not pleased with clothing and said it was not a Chanukah gift – oy!
Thursday evening we lit the candles for night two. TechyDad and I did not buy a lot of items for the boys this year. They receive plenty during the year and from family. I wanted to give them something that would keep them busy. So we pulled out a shared gift and some Chanukah coloring books. The little guy cried again – although I think it was over needing a tissue. The big kid was happy to watch the DVD and color in his book.
So my question to you this week:
What was your least favorite holiday gift that you ever received and why?
P.S. – Please stop by and check out my guest post on Chopper Shopper Chatter about Creating Chanukah Traditions. Oh and don’t forget to enter my two giveaways. #1 for an Aurora stuffed gift (ends 12/5) and the other a gift pack from Loveable Labels (ends 12/12)

I really can’t think of anything that I didn’t like or want. My family knows me pretty well.

I am guilty of re-gifting gifts that aren’t necessarily “me”. My sister gave me a vase a few years back however we set it out to the curb with a free sign as I couldn’t think of anyone who would like it. :0

I can’t think of any. Must be because I tend to forget anything bad.
A Bobblehead. Seriously what is the point of a bobblehead?

When I was little, it was clothes. I hated to get clothes as gifts. Now that I have kids of my own, I make sure to never get them clothes unless they specifically ask for something!
BTW, I love that Adam Sandler song. Never fails to make me smile!

Well I think it was a Kitchenaid Mixer.
We also celebrate Chanukah, the first night daughter and I made Latkes and she received a snow globe. the second night we had Lamb and olive oil and she received some money. Tonight we are have a party complete with Latkes, Roasted chicken rubbed in olive olive and bitters. Of course we will play Dreidel, dance the Polka around the kitchen table and decorate Almond Sugar Cookies. Hope you have a great Chanukah season.

I love Adam Sandler’s song! My least favorite gift I got was from my Grandma In Law….she bought me this HIDEOUS necklace last year…I mean, it looked horrid. I can’t even describe it. I think the “piece” on it must have weighed 100 lbs and looked like fake gold….I felt like a rapper with it on – you know, their bling?
Needless to say – it was given to goodwill!

I got candles. I don’t use candles in my home, unless I can open the windows. It was just weird.

There were a lot of dud gifts courtesy of SIL’s who have mastered the art of avoided the workforce. I’m enjoying your pictures. Brings back a lot of memories.
Have a great Friday!
You know, I can’t think of anything. We were so poor growing up that we only received one gift and a very sparse stocking. We were thankful for anything!

I think the best present I ever got was probably my car when I was 17. At least that got the biggest reaction to date. Or maybe it was my opal ring, that was the same year though I think. I love Christmas. I love watching everyone elses reaction to what they are opening. ;) Sorry the little guy wasn’t too impressed with his shirt. I think they are awesome. My boys love that show.

I can think of several, but one that stands out was a set of canisters from my ex-husband…I didn’t need them, and didn’t ask for them… :)
